MAP JOURNALS are hand marbled, hand stitched and one of a kind spaces for your writing and reflecting.
the journals begin with breath and ink: using the Japanese process of suminagashi-style paper marbling, ink is suspended on the water's surface, moved by breath or tool.
each MAP JOURNAL cover paper is gently laid on the water's surface, making a unique print.
once dried, each notebook cover is folded, pressed, and bound by hand using traditional bookbinding techniques, finished on a table-top guillotine cutter.
inside each journal is an expanse of forty blank, smooth, soft white pages of usa-made paper wait for your thoughts, dreams, and ideas.
