The journal provides plenty of space for personal reflection, sketching, or jotting down favorite quotations or poems. Inside, the premium smooth-finish paper takes pen or pencil beautifully. Light gray lines subtly guide your writing. The paper is acid-free and of archival quality. The cover design is embossed and embellished with iridescent highlights. An added touch: The journal's page edges are gilded in gold foil. Tuck notes, mementos, and more in the pocket inside the back cover. A matching elastic closure secures your journal. Interior end sheets complement the design. Sturdy book-bound-style binding.
