This is an absolutely beautiful journal in which to record thoughts, artwork or anything else you might wish to put pen to paper with. I originally purchased this to use as a daily diary, but I am now re-thinking that. As gorgeous as this is, I want to use it for something more important than just recording my thoughts. It deserves pride-of-place. I knew it would be a similar match my old bedroom linens (I purchased new linens along with this journal), but didn't expect it to be so very close. I love red and gold together, which is obvious from my purchase history, and believe this to be a perfect combination of the 2. Bottom line, purchase at your own risk! I say that because once you receive it, you'll want to hang onto it forever.

I purchased this journal as a gift, so I can't speak to the durability, etc., but from what I could tell it's well-made. The overall look is very pleasing. the cover is very pretty and the leather cord is a nice accent. The pages on the inside were a little stiff, but that's to be expected for this type of journal. I don't think the stiffness will get in the way of writing entries. It's a good sized journal. I'd definitely recommend it.

Both my niece and I like to Journal. I always keep an eye open for hand-crafted pieces. Usually, I pick up mostly India inspired books, so this Asian themed book was a departure. This was a "just because" gift for my Niece. She claims this is her favorite, above all others I've sent.
