First Class: Small Refillable Leather Journal

First Class: Small Refillable Leather Journal


Size Small 4” x 6”

This compact refillable, hard-cover journal is hand-bound using vintage materials. The cover is created from a leather law book that is over 100 years old. It has plenty of room for your lists, sketches, doodles or plans. Refill with Just My Type notebooks (small) or with Moleskine cahier notebooks (small).

I’ve added a graphic of a globe and postage stamps and the words First Class to the front cover in waterproof ink. Expect age and wear on the leather covers due to their age. You will find a handy pocket inside the back cover to stash cards and papers.

The journals come with two notebook inserts, but will hold three or four. Notebook inserts are unlined, but if you want lined paper, I will insert those instead. Or you can choose a monthly or weekly unlined calendar insert. A built-in elastic loop keeps your papers safe and private.
