Purchased as a gift after I bought one for myself. Love the historical maps on the journal cover. I get lots of compliments when people see mine.

This is a beautifully crafted book. My only complaint is that when I open it, the book inside is upside down and backwards. I believe it is for a left handed person and I am right handed. The one in the picture appears to open correctly for a right handed person.

I just gave this leather journal as a birthday gift to my son, and he really liked it. The leather cover personalized with the chicago shoreline made it a special gift, and one that he can hopefully use and enjoy for many years.
Great case

Very beautiful and durable. The case is well crafted. Makes an unique gift. I may need to order more.

The Brooklyn journal is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen. I purchased as a gift, but it took all I had to actually give it away since it was so wonderful. The size, the detail and the fabulous smell of the leather blew me away. I would love to own one of these - the Paris journal or the New Orleans journal will be next on my gift list. Exquisite - you will not be disappointed!

A modern take on an ancient craft, this Made in the USA etched leather notebook cover showcases your favorite city. The supple leather hides are sourced from a local Milwaukee tannery, then hand cut and laser-engraved with antique, early 20th-century maps of American towns. The included Moleskine notebook is replaceable, so you can always carry your thoughts in something beautiful that’s Made for a Lifetime.

Tactile Craftworks

A fresh take on a traditional craft, these etched leather notebook covers and passport wallets are built to last a lifetime and pay tribute to your favorite city.

They’re made entirely in America with incredible attention to detail. Makers Sarah Kirkham and Anna Warren, who live in Milwaukee, decided to source their materials and do all manufacturing locally. The supple leather hides come from a local Milwaukee tannery. They are hand-cut and laser-engraved with antique, early 20th-century maps of U.S. cities right in the Maker’s hometown.

Since everything is so close by, Sarah and Anna are engaged at every stage of the process, from hand-selecting the materials to adding the finishing, post-technology touches to their work.

Tactile Craftworks journals come equipped with a removable (and replaceable) Moleskin notebook. So you can fill up as many pages as you want again, and again. Regardless of what you fill them with, these heirloom-quality covers wear beautifully and are worthy of your best ideas. more Their Story
