Fine quality hand bound books
A travel Journal quite unlike any other! Inspired by the golden age of travel and exploration, this ingeniously quirky hard-bound book in the style of a vintage suitcase is just begging to be packed with adventure. Our ‘well traveled suitcase’ features a decorative handle, luggage tag, real vintage maps for end-papers and a generously sized, gusseted back pocket. The blue and cream pages are blank for both writing and drawing.
240 hand-stitched, unlined pages of 100gsm, FSC, smooth, bond paper in blue and cream, inside a traditional hardbound full cloth cover. The end-papers are genuine vintage maps. The cloth cover features reproduction vintage luggage labels, cotton webbing ‘luggage straps’ and leather-cloth embellishments on both the front and back.
Each book is finished with a ribbon book-marker, decorative headbands and includes a blotter and lined guide sheet. Every Travel Journal is unique. No two are alike, luggage labels and maps will differ in each one.
