I think my StoneGrain Leather Field Journal is one of my favorite leather goods. Originally going to be a keepsake holder for paper stubs and receipts from adventures, it has become a full-blown, write anything and everything down notebook! What do I write about? Well, that's personal. Get your own Field Journal!
Beauty in the details
The leather on these journal has been aging beautifully and every nick and scratch adds character. I have fallen in love with the Speckletone Oatmeal Paper in terms of texture and style. I was a little concerned when first getting the journal with the lack of lines on the pages (I can't write straight without major assistance!) but I love how my pen glides over the coarse texture. Each page is unique not only in what I write, but in how the paper looks as each sheet has little "flecks" that make it different from the one opposite it. Another bonus is that the paper is so soft and the edges unfinished that there is no way to get a paper cut!
I sometimes take it along on my adventures, putting it into my Portland Leather Satchel (that is pairs with perfectly), and getting it out when I need to write something down. It is remarkable how the handwritten word assists me with memory these days! I need any help I can get remembering every detail about the wedding to assist my fiancé!
The Field Journal in Rome and in the Snow
In addition to my own Field Journal, my fiancé has a StoneGrain Leather Sketchbook and my soon-to-be nephew has one as well. What is awesome about my nephew's book is that McCord customized it with a Batman Branding (see below)!
