I posted two new options for my handmade “fauxdori” leather traveler’s notebooks today, and they can be summed up roughly as “plain or fancy”.
- Plain:Like to keep things simple? This listing is for a “plain” (no cover design) Midori-style leather traveler’s notebook cover, with your name or monogram (or that of a gift recipient) stamped on the cover if you wish at no extra charge. (If you want a name added, please message me via the blue button in the lower right corner of the screen.)
Your journal will be bound with black elastic that can hold your passport in addition to 2-3 travelers notebooks, folders, and other inserts, and comes with ONE hand cut and hand sewn notebook insert in the appropriate size to fit your cover, with dot graph pages; other notebook fillers will be available in the shop soon.
Size options (approximate dimensions of the book when open):
Dollar Store: 7 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (holds 2-3 dollar store mini composition notebooks)
Passport: 8 1/4″ x 5 3/4 ” (holds 2-3 passport-sized notebooks)
Standard: 9″ x 10 1/2″ (holds 4-6 standard sized notebooks)
Wide: 9″ x 12″ (holds 4-6 standard sized notebooks)
Colors available: scarlet red, black, TARDIS blue, buffalo brown, timber brown, canyon tan, violet, yellow, forest green, off-white, pink, turquoise (More color choices coming soon!)
All the bells and whistles! Do you have a particular image or theme you’d like featured on the cover of your journal? (Your favorite animal, plant, deity, TV show, etc)? After consulting with you via Messenger, I will design a cover to your specifications, provided your suggested design is one I think I can execute. You will have approval of the final design before I begin work on your journal. I will pyrograph your design into the journal by hand, along with a short stamped phrase or name if you wish. I will then dye and paint the journal in the colors you choose. (Size is also up to you, per the choices listed above.)
If you’re thinking of placing an order for holiday gift-giving, just a reminder that both of these journal options are made to order, and you will need to place your order by 12/5 (this coming Monday!) to give me enough time to get it to you by 12/19.
