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.

A journal is an essential traveling companion, so why not select one that is up to the task. Every journey is a unique–and therefore unrepeatable–experience. Entrust your memories to a journal that will stand up to the rigors of travel and then stand up to the test of time. The LeBaron traveler is a sturdy book, filled with the same top quality 100% rag paper as all LeBaron journals, tightly stitched so that all those pages will never come apart. Let’s talk leather: no cheap substitutes here. Your Traveler is wrapped in the best cowhide available, with a generous overwrap that will protect the pages inside from the rigors of travel. The deerskin tie keeps everything securely bound, yet easy to undo when the muse strikes. What to do with your Traveler? Write, of course. Sketch, if it suits you. You’re sure to find all sorts of little things along the way: tickets, a flower to press, a playbill, postcards, a menu. You can glue them into your journal, or, slip them inside the leather wrap. The design of the Traveler makes it the perfect place to hold all those items so that you can get them home safely and take them out when it’s time to bring up memories.
