A marvel of craftsmanship and quality, this Hand-Stitched Leather Journal is made in Italy by artisans practicing centuries old techniques. The soft brown leather cover features straps to protect the interior rag paper pages which are stitched by hand into the spine of the journal. The binding stitches show on the outside, adding an attractive period detail. This journal can be used in settings where historical accuracy is desired or required. Makes an excellent gift for re-enactors and writers. Made in Italy by Manufactus bookbindery.
