HARDCOVER, A5-Sized Journal: Standard A5 size (5.75 x 8.25 inches) allows for easily transporting in a handbag, backpack or tote.
144 BLANK PAGES: Perfect for drawing, taking notes or writing daily journal entries.
RIBBON BOOKMARK: Whether you're a chronic writer or more spontaneous, a ribbon bookmark will help keep track of where you left off writing, so that you don't have to flip through pages to find your last entry. The use of a colorful ribbon also adds a more classic, sophisticated look to the journal and can withstand constant use versus a paper bookmark.
ACID-FREE PAPER: More difficult to decompose than regular paper and has a longer shelf-life. It is commonly used when someone wants to archive notes, daily journal entries or sketches for several years without the pages deteriorating or yellowing.
FEATURED ART: Over two dozen species of capsicum or chili peppers are cultivated today. Many contain capsaicin--a natural painkiller promoting a sense of well-being when eaten. Perilla leaf (back cover), a member of the mint family, is highly aromatic and often served with sushi due to its antibacterial qualities. These images are from the Seikei Zusetsu (1793-1804), a Japanese agricultural encyclopedia.
