This Leather Journal | Diary for 2018 makes a great gift for luxury stationery lovers - or a wonderful treat for yourself.
Each journal / diary is made by hand in our Cambridge based studio, bound in a flexible softback cover of Italian leather - and personalised with a modern vintage letterpress print.
Our journals and diaries are popular with returning customers year after year - we love to hear that Hope House Press is renowned for our attention to detail. Every order is beautifully gift wrapped as standard: your order will arrive presented in a gift box lined with tissue and secured with a band of ribbon, and includes a gift card printed with your message.
It is ready to gift, without further wrapping required - making it perfect if you'd like us to send it direct to the recipient. If you would like us to send it direct to a recipient for you, we can also include a notecard with a message of your choice - we'll print it and pop it underneath the ribbon for you, at no extra cost.
You can choose from a range of bright, muted and classic colours as indicated in the drop down menu. To make the book truly bespoke, you can also choose to have a plain, lined or squared paper within it. All are shown in the images alongside the cover of this style.
The front cover features your wording, printed over two lines, in classic serifed capitals in archival black ink. Our signature print method produces a 'kiss' with ink, rather than an impression in the leather.
Text is printed right justified on the front cover of the diary, as illustrated.
By way of example, to order the personalisation Emily 2018 (as illustrated), enter Emily for Line 1, and 2018 for Line 2.
The personalised edition can be printed in mixed upper and lower case letters. We will print the wording as entered - so please capitalise the wording exactly as you would like it to appear. To ensure we have room to fit your personalisation on the cover - please capitalise only the first letter of names/words, as illustrated, where desired.
We have room to print up to 6* characters per line on the Small (A6) size, 7* characters per line on the Medium (Between A6 and A5) size - and up to 8* characters per line on the Large (A5) size. *The number of characters should include any spaces or punctuation required.
Each Hope House Press Notebook, Journal or Diary is made by hand to order in our studio, using premium quality paper bound in luxurious Italian leather. The natural materials and traditional production method make each one unique. To ensure that the inking will withstand regular use, our printing method produces a raised print, rather than the print being debossed into the leather.
A brass sexangle pen is also available to add to your order at an additional cost. The pen is not suitable for children and should not be used by anyone under 18 years of age.
Small (A6): approx 15.5 x 10.5cm
