My hand sewn journal on the top features a Coptic binding that has a braided stitching that joins the signatures of the book with the book covers.
The bottom photo shows a journal that I used while on a trip to Japan. I like to add items to the stubs of the page sections. This one has a real Gingko leaf that lined the streets in Osaka.
A journal can be used in many different ways:
• travel • gardening • sketches
• dreams • recipes • memories
