Care Instructions

Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.

Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!

Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleanerfor additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

Top notch

This is seriously probably the highest quality professional watercolor sketchbook on the market. The leather and binding are of course amazing, wouldn't expect anything else from Rustico. But the paper - wow, as good as it gets. 140 LB cold-pressed 100% cotton. Just fantastic. Thank you!

The Perfect Gift for an Artist Friend

This art journal is so beautiful, so elegant in its rustic simplicity. The binding is just wonderful. The quality is superb. We gave this to an artist friend, who journals in watercolor, to celebrate her 60th birthday. She loves it. We gifted the journal in medium size; depending on the recipient of the gift, some may prefer the larger size. For our friend, this was perfect. For our part, we were delighted to give such a stunning gift.
