The Purist Wood lined journal is hand-bound with black linen on the spine and cherry wood veneer and black archival board on the front and back covers. The skillful binding allows the book to open flat for comfortable writing. The journal is filled with 192 pages of cream writing paper, lightly lined. A rounded elastic is integrated into the cover, keeping the book closed for safe storage and as a place-keeper. Made in Germany by Bindewerk.
