So, we’ve perfected our design for a full-wrap journal. We’re releasing them as limited editions (the design name is the Aeneas) since they take twice as long to make as our usual covers, and we simply don’t have the resources to create a large inventory of them. This moleskine cover is a birthday present for my sister (don’t tell her; she doesn’t know yet!), and we’re pretty excited about getting it to her. It fits a large moleskine, but we haven’t decided whether to ship a lined notebook for journaling or a sketch notebook for sketching.
This is a moleskine journal cover we made recently and was just sold. The design template we call the Karenina (after Tolstoy’s novel), but, like all of our work, the actual tool design is a one-of-a-kind. Can’t quite see it in the picture, but there’s a nice ornate spine down the side. We shipped this one with a large moleskine sketchbook. Kinda sad to part with this one!
This was a commissioned wedding present; the patron wanted to give moleskine leather journal covers to both bride and groom, but didn’t want them to match in any traditional way.
The moleskine cover is 3-4oz leather with eco-flo dyes.
Hey, Moleskiners. We’re new to the scene. Sojourner Leatherwork is an artisan group for Christine and Luke Thompson. We don’t put our art in the Moleskine, but rather we like to put it around the Moleskine. We do leather art, and we especially like Moleskine covers.
This is our first run at making a cover for a moleskine pocket with a leather flap that wraps around the cover (especially popular these days in journal designs). What’s nice about the style is that it gives us an entire third side to do our toolwork on. The toolwork uses almost all hand-made leather stamps from Argentina, and toolwork method is Argentinian in nature. The outside is tooling hide, and the inside is lined with suede, which we won’t do again since you can’t do any toolwork on it. But this one turned out alright.
