Very disappointed in this journal. The leather has a cheap feel to it; almost like vinyl. And, although I do like the paper the insert looks like the corners were slightly crushed at some point. It could have happened during shipping since the journal is sent in an envelope instead of a box.
This is a beautifully made journal with a soft leather binder that holds a pad of crafted pale yellow paper; the binder is closed by inserting a leather strip through a leather "belt loop." The item arrived in a beautiful bag of red cloth with gold-like filigree. Despite all the glowing description, the item is clearly more appropriate to a table next to a bed for recording thoughts at the end of the day. I was looking for an item that had a heavier leather cover to use as a journal while camping in the north woods. This journal would be to fragile even for use in a motorhome or a remote cabin: however as milady's private record of the day's events it would be perfect.
