The "Smythe Sewn Foiled Slim Lined journal combines a perennially popular, classic Old Leather cover with a convenient and elegant slim book format. Capturing the beauty of 15th-century Italian bound books, this Old Leather journal draws inspiration from antique bindings which were often made of brown or red morocco (fine goatskin leather), and decorated using delicate foliage patterns in gold tooling -- a method introduced to Europe from the Middle East. Unique, tactile, and so very pleasing to the eye, this journal features a subtly weighted strap for secure closing, satin ribbon place markers and a memento pouch to store the treasures of a life well-lived. The superb leather-look cover, high-quality paper, binding and design are a marvel to the eye and touch.
