I'm pretty excited about this journal. I accidently cut the cover about 4 inches too long. So the flap wraps entirely around the journal and covers the spine protecting it from everything. It looks great too. I left eh foreedge raw and used a coordinatingleather for the thong. The inside paper is a block printed washi paper that I haven't been able to find again. It's quite nice even if it is pink!
I didn't realize how long the cover was when I cut the spine, otherwise I would have used a more intricate sewing and been able to take this out of my stock line of journals.
