Hi, this is Allison LeBaron.

Thanks for your interest in my handmade journals. I start by trimming natural leather into a sturdy cover. I hand tear 100% cotton rag paper to leave a deckled edge and then sew the pages into the leather cover.

I give you the options of selecting decorative end sheets, adding a closure button, and having initials stamped into the front cover.


Fill out the form at right to create your own journal. I will review your order and send you a confirmation email and an invoice for the journal, optional add-ons, and shipping cost.  If you are ordering more than one journal, please fill out a separate form for each selection and check off the box indicating you are ordering multiple journals.

What poet wouldn’t want this beautiful little journal within which to compose? It’s small, it is true, but so easy to tuck into the corner of your pack or take along on your next outing. Keep a pen or pencil within the wrap around leather cover and you’re ready to wax eloquent no matter the location, be it next to a stream, in a meadow, on the subway train or at the coffee shop. Emboss your initials–or better yet, have your poet friend’s initials embossed and give this as a gift–and the the poem book is a treasure. Handmade, 100% natural, just add your thoughts!
