Would have given it 5 stars if journal was lined. It's not. Blank pages means I have to go out and buy a lined book to put in it. If I was into sketching it would be fine. As always, the Leatherwork is impeccable
I own several ecolemamie notebooks and I love them all. Excellent craftsmanship, utility, and ruggedly handsome. My latest addition is no exception.
For many years I have had a book of this design. My grandson so admired it that I bought one for him. He was overwhelmed at the excellent craftsmanship. My sister subsequently bought a phone case with the same design. Beauty is contagious & ecolemamie is well equipped to deal with its spread!
I selected the large book, in green... to match my husband's small green journal [that I bought him some 25 years ago]. He barely used it, treasuring the design and color. The quality is delightful. Well-stamped designs, in gorgeous, real leather. I can't stop smelling mine. One thing to note: it won't lie flat when closed, there is a small knot where the tie is attached. I ordered a refill, and had Amazon deliver it, for $12. Also, i added the pen loop, and couldn't be happier. Thank you Obsron!
I got my journal way back in 1995 at a little bookstore in Bozeman MT when I got accepted to architecture school. After 25 years, it's still going strong and a much treasured item for me. Of course there have been many new sketchbooks since then, but the leather cover still looks great. Thank you ecolemamie for making such a good quality item.
Beautiful cover, over the moon with the purchase. Well worth the money.
Ive had my journal for well over a decade and still love it and use it all the time. I baught one for my daughter for the holidays and checked it out when it got here, still amazing quality. Ive now decided to order one more for one of my other daughters. I know they will cherish them for decades to come as i do mine.
