This is a high quality handbound book. I constructed this book by hand tearing pages to sew into a rustic leather journal. The leather used for this book is a Dark Maroon Cowhide Leather that is about 1.2 mm thick and I used black waxed thread to sew it together, then added a strip of lace to the front. The pages are made of Mohawk Superfine Text Weight paper & were hand-torn one at a time. This paper is made in the USA & is white in color. Great little jotter to carry with you every day! This journal would make a great gift for your favorite gal! This book contains 60 sheets, so a total of 120 pages (including front & back). The size of the book is approximately 6.8 inches by 5 inches & about 1 inch thick at the binding.
