Some people really don't understand the necessity of having a great journal to write in. I personally feel more empowered and creative when I have a nice journal. These leather journals by aLexLibris are so beautiful, my pen will probably write by itself. They remind me of old sacred texts! I have to get one!
This Cthulhu Leather Journal is absolutely stunning. The metal embellishment is just gorgeous and I really love the buckles that wrap around the book. It is blank on the inside so it's perfect for writing or even as a sketchbook. The bound journal is 8 x 10.5 inches in size and has 300 pages (600 pages if you count both sides). The Cthulhu motive is hand carved on a very thick leather. I think even Lovecraft would have loved to write in something this beautiful.
Maybe you would like something a little simpler and the Large Coffin Leather Journal would be a better fit! This is the larger of the two leather bound journals measuring 9 x 12.5 inches and holds 130 pages. The leather is a burnt reddish hue. The edges of the paper are also painted with a brown silk paint.
This Leather Coffin Journal is a smaller version of the one above and a slightly different color. This is an antique brown leather color and measures 8 x 5.5 inches. This journal has 200 pages. The pages have been sewn, aged, and hand tinted edges with silk moire end-papers. This would make such a cool gift for some of my writer friends or even artists!
I want this Great Ankh Leather Journal so bad! This is by far my favorite and it's so gorgeous. I love the ouroboros, pentacle, and frame. The whole book is put together so beautifully. It measures 11 x 14.3 inches and has 350 pages of vintage paper. If I had this as my own, I would definitely have such a passion for writing and even drawing.
