Bought as a leaving gift for someone at work (so much better and more personal for everyone to sign instead of a card). Sold through Amazon by another company who were fast and efficient- this brown journal was out of stock when I tried to buy it however I receieved a prompt email from the company itself advising me of this and offering me 2 other journals I may be interested in. Ended up picking this journal in black and I was not dissapointed.
It arrived smelling of real leather but the cotton pages smelt a little funny, however that went away after it was out of the plastic packaging for a couple of days. Love the tie around the journal that keeps it closed- so simple but such a nice touch. The book itself is hard to write in until the spine bends and softens.
All in all a lovely gift to yourself or someone else who may be keen on writing (or leaving a company. I would recommend purchasing fountain pens to go with this product as they are perfect for cotton pages.
