The Pelle Leather Journal ($30) is another worthy addition to your analog record keeping repertoire. Inspired by the hard to find and broadly loved Midori Traveler’s Notebook, it features a sturdy leather cover with elastic retainer band and the ability to hold up to three different notebooks in one cover. The covers are made in the USA from American leather, a win-win in our book, err… mind. The notebooks themselves provide 28 lb paper, also made in the USA, that’s perfect for the fountain pens we often write with and can be had in either lined or plain paper. While we probably won’t pen the next great American novel in it, we’re definitely willing to try. Perhaps it’s time for a trip.
