Have you been dreaming about starting a journal? Have you looked at the huge selection of leather covers available and then not been sure which one you should buy because you don't know which size paper notebook fits inside. Or have you been looking for the ideal journal / planner gift that won't break the bank but also has the advantage that it's ready to use from the start? The Dark Forest Leather Journal Cover from Meadowgate Leather solves all the above and more! It comes in a wide range of sizes (see below for the detail). Each cover includes four handmade notebook refills (replacements are avaialble here too, but they are standard sizes). The leather (approx 1.8mm thick) is a dark brown which is quite supple and includes some 'pull-up', which means it is intended to achieve a 'worn in' look. It will accept scuffs, bends and scratches to achieve a charming antique effect. I hand make every journal cover with care and attention and just because this is a starter set, the detail undertaken is still as if it were a premium model. To show my pride in my work, each of the Dark Forest journal covers is stamped with my maker's mark on the back. The cover (whichever size you choose) comes with four standard general use (plain) notebooks which have been hand-stitched with strong waxed thread down the spine. These will be suspended on the four elastics. The notebook cover colours may vary, as may the thread elastic colours. The cover will be made to my Standard width. Let me know if you would like your cover to be a little wider.
