Vest Pocket Notebook - Half Leather in Navy & Green


Daily journaling, sketching, or doodling—the difference in a traditionally handcrafted book is that it is designed with the writer in mind. Every journal and notebook made at Crowing Hens Bindery is designed using traditional bookbinding methods and archival materials to ensure that it is a pleasure to use and that it will last for generations.
