A beautifully handcrafted original! We own over 30 notebooks and none compare to this one - it's hand made but professional looking and functional. The cover binding is made to fold back so you can write on the pages far into the crease of the book. Love the twine and twig binding - beautiful, artistic, and, once again, functional. You can not help but remember the whole notebook comes from trees - since all the trees components are on the front cover. Recommended for artists, nature lovers, notebook lovers, writers, crafters, etc.!
