This gorgeous Handmade Black Leather Notebook Cover is a perfectly stylish way to store your travel journal or notebooks for recording all your precious memories and travel tales. Made from well aged leather, it has four standard elastic bands to secure 4-6 notebooks (depending on size). This black leather notebook cover is timeless, stylish and sleek.
*Notebooks are not included
Pretty sweet setup for my needs but I'd make a few changes next time. I'm also grumpy I didn't buy a repair kit at the time- meh. I may use my own elastic hack later. I've only had this a month so ask me at the 100 day mark XD
Bought A5 size for urban sketching gear... fits two hard cover A5 Etchr sketchbooks (portrait format HP 220GSM). My preference is soft cover but Etchr don't do that or there'd be 3 in here.
I use a Papelote A4 (yep not A5) strap to keep it all closed because I use that strap for other things too. (That's a Czech invention and very good quality. The strap is 19mm elastic on the A4 with 5 pen loops.)
I've yet to use it further afield because I'm still refining what I use in the new sketchbook.
Picture shows my hacked kit- not entire because the other stuff is elsewhere. So, all pen loops get used; the eraser is a must; the small pencil tin is on top of the papelote strap there's my ruler under it with a rubber band to secure each to the strap plus keep my tin closed. The small tin isn't just for graphite matte pencils. You can see the two sketchbooks one is half full already. There's a clipboard that a lot of this will get attached to while I use the sketchbooks, yes two in use at once.
The papelote strap will keep a page open to dry without damaging the paper.
I can't review the rest of the purchase because I'm still testing it out. (It goes in a crazy horse bag with the rest of my kit but I'm still refining what I "need" vs "kitchen sink bag" it replaced XD)
These guys' leathers are amazing. I bought both passport size and regular size cover. Color and craftsmanship are great. I love the leather scent. Elegant…
it is very practical and comfortable the difficult thing is to get the refill I use it for quick annotations and drawings
Recently bought this passport sized TN in combination with a wallet insert and I love both products. I use them as my everyday carry and the size is just perfect. The elastic has the right amount of tension and the leather feels nice and comfortable to hold.
I own a passport-size TN from the Travelers Company and now this one from Galen Leather. I got the Large size instead of a standard TN size even though that’s what I want it for because I want a bit of extra to make sure it can keep the pens I carry on the outer edge of my journals covered, and also so that I can fit way too much stuff in there at once. I also intend to get a Galen Leather TN wallet and I don’t want anything peeking out the edges. I love that GL offers this size for those like me who just have absolutely no chill and intend to carry everything all the time.
My Christmas list this year was pretty much just things from Galen leather. This purple traveler’s notebook cover was the first one I opened and the first thing I’ve ever received from the shop. I knew it was the right choice and that this definitely wouldn’t be my last time asking for their products for my presents.
I didn’t ask for any specific personalization but my husband added my name and the tag #8 (You don’t have to be perfect to be amazing) which was even more meaningful because my word of the year was imperfection
In the picture, I have a single TN insert, plus my hobonichi weeks in a faux-leather cover (while waiting on the GL wallet cover I want to come back in stock), a small pouch with pens, and like a lifetime supply of stickers. Excessive for an everyday carry, but perfect for vacation journaling in order to have everything close-at-hand.
The colour is really beautiful! I've but beeswax on it as a moisturizer. It makes the colour pop even more. The leather is really thick and good quality. I use my TN cover as a weekly planner and combine it with my crazy horse wallet insert
I bought this traveler notebook as a gift to my boyfriend and he loved it! The quality is great, it was delivered so fast and now we are looking forward to traveling together :) i highly recommend everyone to order from Galen leather. Finally small turkish goods delivered together with the notebook as gifts were so thoughtful and made both of us smile :)
I received my travellers notebook in stunning box that made me smile. The smell as I opened the box was amazing. The note book is just what I wanted to hold smaller sketch books I’ve accumulated over the years. The craftsmanship on this item is wonderful and I look forward to using this for years to come.
Also I like the sentence 'Today is the Only day'.
Only I worried about the sharp corners causing scratches.
But It seems alright until now.
