I love these. So far I bought three o them. I need two more with the NEWORLEANS MAP. Please let me know when you have them back in stock. Thanks


My Niece loves the journal...


My niece loves the Etched leather map of Manhatten, it marks a very important event in her life. She said that she was amazed at the beautiful leather work and just the over all presentation. As soon as Tactile Craftworks starts their international line of etched leather map journal, I will be putting in two more orders this time one for myself.More > < Less


New Orleans Again?


I can't find any way to contact you and I have a question. Will you be making the NOLA journal again? I don't see it is as an available design. I would like to purchase one if they become available again. My e-mail is [email protected] Thank you!More > < Less


Etched leather map Journal of Manhattan N.Y


I order one for my niece as a remembrance for an important event in her life that took place in Manhattan this summer. She loves it and says that she has received many compliments and people asking her where they could get something like it. She is directing those that
have asked to your online site.
It is possible that shortly you will be doing the same for international cities? I would love to have one of London, Paris, and Venice.
Enclosing customer service was very helpful in making sure that my order when through with no problems.

About Tactile Craftworks

Vintage Notebook

A fresh take on a traditional craft, these etched leather notebook covers 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.
