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.
A perennial favorite of JournalsAndBooks customers and staff alike, our Monastic Strap Classic Italian Leather Journals are a classic and never fail to impress, with quality that speaks for itself.
Handcrafted in Italy, this refillable journal features a thick full-grain leather cover with a hand-rubbed, antiqued brown finish, and a belt closure. The unlined paper of the journal is a revelation: creamy and smooth but strong. The Italians really know paper and leather!

Handcrafted in Gubbio, Italy, our Monastic Strap Classic Italian Leather Journals are of unsurpassed quality. Simple yet elegant, they all featuring a leather flap closure (or "latch") and a cover of soft, thick, full-grain calf leather that is hand-dyed and rubbed, adding richness and depth to its appearance. No two look exactly alike.
Inside, the luxurious, acid-free, pale ivory Fabriano paper is buttery smooth - and a joy to write on.
The design of the Monastic Strap Classic Italian Leather Journal series is a balance of Old World craftsmanship and modern sensibilities, resulting in a simple yet rich look - and a rugged journal that will last a lifetime.
