Founded by and for artists in 2004, JournalsAndBooks.com is an online boutique of hand-picked writing journals and other select gifts. With our new website and products we hope to bring you an improved shopping experience overall!
Housed in an old lingerie factory, JournalsAndBooks is a small independent company and a proud member of our community here in Bushwick, Brooklyn, regularly supporting the efforts of our local farmers' market and urban farm (more about EcoStation:NY). Be engaged, people!
Brooklyn is bursting with creative energy and our catalog is too! Its diverse flavors is our constant inspiration and fuels our passion for discovering tools for the creative mind: writing journals, sketchbooks, photo albums - all empty canvases for you to create and explore.

The best of the best! imported from Italy, these heirloom-quality are hand-made from the finest materials: smooth, full grain leather, with exquisite, acid-free 50lb. pages (that's nice and heavy!) interleaved with a subtly-patterned velum (also acid-free).
The Snapshot Italian Leather Photo Album is made following the Old World tradition of covering a wooden board in rich hand-dyed black calf skin, resulting in an extremely long lasting and durable book. The customizable cover frame holds one image of your choosing. The frame is made from a single piece of leather--the same piece of leather as front of the album -so it is impossible for the frame to come loose, a fine example of how these albums are made by the finest artisans making the world's highest quality albums - there is no mistaking it!
This album has raised bands covering the thongs (cords along the spine of the book) that the pages are sewn into by hand. The result from a genuine raised-band album is that it will stand up to continuos use for a very, very long time. The quality of this handmade album is unsurpassed and is archival rated to last beyond 100-200 years with proper care.
