As soon as I saw the photos, I knew I had to have one. So I waited with great anticipation for the arrival of my new Journal. It did not disappoint. It is a beautiful well crafted journal, filled with paper that I will be able to paint on with my watercolours, and use for jottings when out & about. The leather is soft, and it is a perfect size to carry with me. It even has a faint spicy smell. I love it. Another excellent product from Ride Proud.
