-Quality leather: durable, full-grain, USA tanned leather.
-Acid-Free Paper: Thick, high quality, and acid-free paper, so your memories and artwork stand the test of time.
-Waxed linen thread: High-quality, thick, waxed linen thread that will keep your journal securely bound for a lifetime.

================
COVER DESIGN:
================
This handcrafted and hand-bound journal features a full-length, curved fold-over flap over the front cover, with a wrap-around leather strap enclosure. The outcome is a beautiful vintage and rustic look and feel. All of my books and journals are made to last a lifetime (at least!) And the leather only gets better with time.

===============
BINDING STYLE:
===============
SEWN BOUND - This journal is hand-bound using a historical bookbinding technique of sewing the pages into the spine, which gives a lovely old-world look and feel. This binding method is durable and permanent.

====================
PERSONALIZATION:
====================
•We use an old-fashioned style of personalizing your leather, called Embossing. Heat is pressed into your journal cover, leaving a gorgeous and rustic looking imprint that is permanent.

•See examples of embossing throughout the listing photos on any listing.

•If you select the option of personalized embossing from the drop-down menu, that will include up to 15 characters of embossing. Please type your personalization in the Personalization Box exactly as you would like it embossed.

•If you would like additional characters, you may add the listing entitled "Additional Embossing" to your order; located in the MORE CUSTOMIZATIONS section.

•Alpha-numeric font is all caps, Times Roman.
Special characters available include: . ' , # @ ? ! " $ % & * : > < ; / \ •Names typically go in the top center by default on this design; unless your specific personalization warrants a different location. If you have a specific location you would like your embossing to go, you must message me or indicate the desired location in the order notes. If specific instructions are not left by you, formatting and location discretion will be left up to myself, and determined by what is most appropriate given your specific journal design and personalization. Examples of placement in the case that specific instructions HAVE NOT been left: If it is a "FAMILY NAME" + "RECIPES", this would all go in the top center. If it is a personal name, such as "REBECCA," then RECIPES will go top center, and REBECCA will go in the lower right corner. If the personalization reads: REBECCA'S RECIPES, then this would all go in the top center. ================= SIZES AVAILABLE: ================= Sizes are all in inches. 6x9 8x10 9x12 =============================== PAPER + PAGE LAYOUT OPTIONS =============================== ✔120 Pages (front and back) with quality, acid-free, 80lb paper. You have 2 options for how your book is laid out: Layout 1) Your book comes with each recipe as a full spread, allowing for 60 recipes, and a lot of room on each page. Great for those with larger handwriting, very detailed recipes, or if you prefer an entire spread devoted to a single recipe. • OR • Layout 2) Your book comes with a full recipe page on each side of a page spread (Full recipe page on each left and right). This allows for 130 recipes; ample room to write recipes but not as spread out as Layout 1. Great for those with LOTS of recipes to write down. MORE RECIPE PAGES AVAILABLE IN THE “ADDITIONAL PAGES” LISTING IN THE JOURNAL ADD-ON SECTION OF THE SHOP. ========================================= WANT MORE PAGES / THICKER JOURNAL? ========================================= Check out the MORE CUSTOMIZATIONS Section of my shop, where you will find the listing "Additional Pages" and you can add as many extra pages as you'd like. ========== LEATHER: ========== Our leathers are USA tanned, premium hides chosen for their rustic yet beautiful character. Please see the last photo in each listing to see an example of a journal in each leather; and also in the listings photos throughout the whole shop. After working with hundreds of various hides and types of leathers, these are the leathers that we weren't able to say goodbye to. Due to the nature of the authentic leather hides, there will always be variation and uniqueness from one journal to the next. Each hide will have some degree of "pull-up," which refers to color variation where the leather is creased or bent; which gives a very rustic or distressed look. Pull-up creases go away with time or with rubbing the leather by hand. Following are descriptions of our leather varieties: RUSSET - A golden medium brown leather with some color variation between lighter browns, golden, and sometimes reddish tones. Beautiful light golden tan pull-up when leather is creased. BISON - A medium-dark brown with gorgeous tan pull-up marks where the leather is creased. MAHOGANY - A semi-glossy solid burgundy-brown leather, without very much color variation or pull-up. Some might consider this our least rustic or distressed looking leather, yet it does still have some color variation and a slight rustic look. DRIFTWOOD - This leather has a ton of color variation between lighter tan to medium brown to darker brown areas, all along the spectrum of sandy and woodsy brown color tones. Some hides will be more covered in the darker brown, but color range and variation is similar. These hides have a very pronounced pull-up effect: you will notice very pronounced color variation in areas that are creased. ====== NOTE: ====== Elastic binding cord color is chosen based on what will accentuate the color of your leather, but if you prefer light or dark, please message me. ================================================= FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders $35 and up! ================================================= =============================================================== To see all of my books, journals, and refills, browse my shop here: ---------------> www.etsy.com/shop/hankbellejournals
