I have been eyeing the Citrus Book Bindery website for months before giving in and ordering a notebook.
These are handmade journals and the variety is absolutely astonishing. However, what made me jump was the fact that there is a “build your own” option.
Thanks to lovely people who used my tip jar, I was able to pick a traveller’s notebook. They have plenty of sizes available, I picked the “field book” size. You can see in the video it that it’s a nice small size, it fits well in the hand. I took it with me on vacations and it fit my art pouch perfectly!
Building my journal
First, I picked a design for it. I went with a night sky blue and moon design because it’s what spoke to me at the time. It’s very beautiful and the details are astonishing.
You even have the choice in the stitch binding you’d like. I went for the “burst” one and it’s beautiful.
I could have just ordered the “skeleton” but because I do not have this size of journal, I added a set of four notebooks.
There again: many many options to choose from. It’s really a “build your own”. You’ll see what I picked in the video
As a final note
I am very very happy with my order and already added in my wishlist a lay-flat journal.
It would also make a beautiful thoughtful gift.
