Bellini leather journal from The Paperie UK

 I can't get over how beautiful this journal is!!

I ordered this from The Paperie UK during their huge sale (which is in its final days, so hurry over there!!).

This journal is the Bellini recycled leather journal in fuscia, click here for the product page.  Yes that's right, it's on sale for only £12.75 (and free shipping)!!  I wondered what the quality of the journal would be like at that price, but I needn't have worried: it's fantastic.  The leather is thick, smooooth, and firm.

The paper is a clear, bright ivory, not muddy or gray at all:
 Here is a view of the cover and spine, so you can see it is one piece of smooth, seam-free leather:
 Here you can see the embossed Notes on the cover:
Please note that the color in real life is a darker rose color than the lighter pink color shown on the website

The book is thick and wonderfully chunky:
The book measures 5 by 6 3/4 inches, which is such a nice size and shape to hold in my hands.  It's small enough to take everywhere in my bag, but large enough to have a big page size.

Here you can see the matching stitching around the edges of the cover:
The Bellini journals come in two different sizes and several colors, and they are all on sale right now. Click here to see the Bellini leather journal selection.

At this price, you could buy several of these journals to use yourself, or to have on hand for gifts.  Anyone would be thrilled to get this leather journal as a very classy gift.  And it was so affordable, I don't feel like this book is too precious to use!  I look forward to using this as my journal when my current one is filled up.

There are other leather journals on sale too, as well as notebooks (including the Jottrr notebooks I reviewed here awhile ago), cards, pens and more. 

The Paperie's sale is only on for a few more days, so hurry to check out their great prices on awesome products!

  2. Hi Loulou, sorry I don't know if this paper is fountain pen friendly. I don't use fountain pens so I can't test it. It's hard to know without testing specifically with a fp if it will feather/ bleed etc. Sorry!
