A small, family-owned business in Bavaria, Germany produces these handmade journal books with the details that elevate them far above the ordinary. The covers are made from natural cherry or walnut wood veneer. The cherry will darken over time to a rich, coppery hue. The black bindings contrast with the wood, as well as the pages themselves which are made from high quality, cream colored writing paper. An elastic closure ties it all together. Available in lined or blank versions.
