New Travel Journals

As the summer approaches, I start thinking that I should make some travel journals for my Etsy shop. I suppose any journal can be used as a travel journal, but I made a few recently that are more specifically designed for this purpose.

These are not very big and they have a simple strap to tie on the front, so if you tuck anything inside, the strap should keep all your loose bits safe in there. I backed the leather with pages from a road atlas. The pages in these journals are four different kinds of paper: unlined white cotton paper, lined notebook paper, cream Strathmore charcoal drawing paper, and a section of unlined coloured paper at that back. Also at the back, I've included a set of pockets made from cardstock so that ticket stubs and other mementos can be tucked away safely. Available on Etsy.

I like the way you have incorporated the maps into the binding.

I am filled with admiration with your marathon binding session below, you are very brave to take on such a task!

Thanks Jody, Ammon, Gillian, and Austtra Kreativ!

Acornmoon, yes does seem rather like a marathon with those books :)
