Leather Leuchtturm1917 A6 Notebook Cover - Brown

Crazy Horse Brown - A6 Notebook Cover

This is a great little notebook cover that holds my Rhodia A6 notebook perfectly. The elastic band holds my notebook safely and a very nice pen loop to keep my pen handy with my cover. There are plenty of nice pockets to hold credit cards, cash, or business cards. The quality is top notch and the stitching is excellent. I love the crazy horse cover because dings and scratches just give the cover more character. I am really glad I purchased this cover.

Beautiful Cover

It took me a while to decide to get this cover, especially since I already had a leather cover from another company, but what eventually won me over was the band that is used to close the notebook. I love having a thick band enclosure over an elastic one. The cover is very tight, I really had to work to get my hobonichi into the cover, but at least I don't have to worry about it ever coming out! The coloration is gorgeous and I'm really happy I got this cover.

First Class Quality

Galen Leather produces quality leather products seldomly seen these days. The leather notebook cover I purchased to last multiple generations. Strong, sturdy and functional. Thank you for an excellent Notebook Cover!

Well made but not fit for purpose

The workmanship on this journal cover is good - the stitching is well done, the leather is thick and well processed, the manufacturing is clearly done by someone skilled. However for me, this journal is not fit for purpose. First despite claiming to be a Hobonichi A6 cover, it won't actually fit a Hobonichi in the under-flap pocket, the way a Hobonichi cover does. Instead it is secured by an elastic band. But then there is a pocket below the journal, which is essentially inaccessible. It is possible this pocket would loosen with use, but I literally forced my book into the pocket until the back page was about to tear, with no success, and the stitching delineates a size smaller than the Techo. On the left hand side of the cover is a leather strap secured with a brass rivet - it is visually attractive, but the rivet is huge and means that only much smaller items will fit there than would be possible if a less flashy device were used to secure the strap. The card slot is loose and the two cards I tried in it (a standard bank card and a business card) both fell out immediately. The pen loop is poorly positioned, so that if you put a Lamy Safari (or any fountain pen) in it, it will crush against the spine of your journal. Finally, it is not possible to use the Hobonichi accessories I have with this journal - neither the card case, photo insert or writing card will fit without leaving them bent and warped.

The leather itself is extremely thick also - I present this as neither positive or negative, but simply be aware this is a huge journal cover. Personally I wanted a protective but lighter cover than I got. Finally the colour I got was a very bland green - nothing like the images on this site.

So this is a nice, well made slab of leather, but for me it is unsuitable.

Excellent quality, service and attention to detail

Was looking for a cover for my Hobonichi Techo (A6) that would have some extras and a bit of versatility, and this one was perfect. Very happy to have an extra pocket for a smaller notebook/passport and the pen loop. Like others mentioned, It was slightly bulkier than expected, but it's absolutely stunning and the craftsmanship is second to none. i'm looking forward to breaking it in and enjoying it for many many years to come. Also shipped and arrived much faster than anticipated! Appreciated the extra treats inside as well :) I look forward to shopping at Galen again and supporting this exceptional small business from overseas :)

Absolutely perfect!

Fits my Hobonichi Techo A6 like a glove, the leather is thick and sturdy and I have no doubt at all that it will last for years. Elastic is strong and the pen loop toward the spine of the notebook is brilliant! Keeps my pens from being banged around in my bag. Shipping to Spain was incredibly fast and arrived in time for Reyes Magos. The coffee and tea included were a lovely touch. Thanks again, Galen Leather!
