beautiful diary
By Jo B
I have had this diary every year for at least 10 years now- it is unique in that it is beautiful when you first get it then as it gets more battered throughout the year, you then have a diary which looks like Indian's Jones' travel-worn journal. I would be bereft without it and its secret little booklet at the back where I write down books I've read throughout the year.
By Aishah Maimuna
Is the material of the cover (black morrocan and jade) suede?
No, all of Paperblanks "Old Leather" collection are printed reproductions of antique leather books, their construction is similar to a hardback book.
