This is the Quad Field Notes Leather Notebook Refillable Journal Cover.
It is designed to hold up to 4 Field Notes, Word. or Small Moleskine Cahier 3.5" x 5.5" notebook (not included).
Much like the Midori, the Quad holds two Field Notes and comes with an extra elastic band which allows for two additional Field Notes. The leather is cut extra wide to accommodate.
Don't want to carry 4 Field Notes? No problem, it looks and works great with only 2.
The exterior binding is 2mm black elastic cord. The interior binding and bookmarks are 1.5mm black elastic cord with solid brass anglets. Very nice.
The leather is extra soft and very thick 8-9 oz. natural Vegetable tanned leather. The edges are carefully burnished with natural beeswax. Nicely rounded edges. Feels so good.
If you are in to natural leather durable goods then you love the aging process of this leather. Leather patina with the additional solid brass bookmark aglet patina. Gotta love it. Patina.
There's something warm and easy to handle about a bulging set of notebooks wrapped in a comfortable leather cover crammed with some biz cards, and other scraps of ephemera inside. So, so nice!
After dragging this little guy around for a few weeks, you'll start to see some nice, gentle darkening and character giving marring and scratches.
Nicely packaged and all handmade in Kansas, USA by Old Church Works.
