I bought this journal after I filled my last Printed Italian Lined Leather Journal, which I loved. These journals are very high quality and generally last a very long time. When I received this journal, I was impressed by how vivid the artwork was, but the leather is much softer than I was expecting. Because of this, the color has noticeably faded after only a few months of regular use and the journal now looks worn (not in an attractive way, either). Even from carrying it around in my bag with other books, the artwork on the covers has been chaffed, leaving awkward white skid marks most apparent inside the black box with the tree. For an "antique" looking journal, this one does not age well.

I purchased this journal for myself. I was looking for one "not Made in China". This Antique Tree of Life Journal is handcrafted in Tuscany, Italy using a special color transfer technique. It is more beautiful in person. The cover is of soft leather material and there are over an 1" thick of lined paper. The journal itself is pretty hefty. The pages are ivory color with soft lines on each page which I prefer to dark black lines. I plan on using this journal and handing it down as a keepsake.

This journal is far prettier than the picture.  The artwork is darker and more vivid, not washed out as shown.  It's very high quality.  The odor another reviewer mentioned (at least with mine) is leather--a wonderful scent that I hope doesn't fade too much.  Pages are very smooth (less hand fatigue) and have thin, delicate lines on them.  I use this for my collection of sayings which was once in a hideous spiral.  This book is beautiful and looks fantastic on a shelf.  Highly recommended, worth the money.

this is a very nice, high end, journal. it is wonderful for people who like to write a lot. it is vey thick, close to 250 pages. the cover is felxible leather with a sewn binding. because of this, the binding expands with use, which is great if you like to stuff your journal. the only problem i have experienced with these journals, (and i'm on my 3rd one) is that roller ball pens don't always seem to work on the paper. the paper is very thick, but in all of them, after a little use, roller balls skip. (its not the pens, i've testd them on other papers) but overall it is an excellent journal. it will last a long time if you don't write ore than a page a day. but if you write several pages a day like i do, it will last 4 to 6 months. when you are done, you have a beautifully bound leather journal, that ages with wear, holding your life story.

I have owned this journal for about a year and a half and it has held up really well and can stand the added bulk of sticking in pictures etc. The leather cover is quite soft and the tree of life print is beautiful, hasn't faded over time. The leather also smells amazing - quite strong at first but it fades after a while. The pages are lined and quite thick, no bleed through and barely any shadowing. Takes fountain pen ink beautifully and is very smooth to write on. After using this journal for 1 1/2 years i decided to buy the Fiori Da Vinci and the Vintage Rose Italian leather journals, they arrived today and are so beautiful - can't wait to use them! Please never discontinue these gorgeous journals! I would stock up if I could afford it!

I just love this journal! I started writing in it on November 6, 2014 (it is December 7, 2014 today) so now I've used up about a third in a month (I do a lot of writing). I love the smell of the leather and it is soft to the touch. The artwork is magnificent. I am concerned with what the reviewer said who stated that the journal cover wears easily so I keep it wrapped in a chamois. It makes it feel special that way. Did I say I love this journal? I The binding is on the inside of the leather. So, for example, if you've used every page in the journal, the spine does not wrinkle or get indented or looked used as books do. It stays very nice. All in all I highly recommend! I've stocked up in case this ever gets discontinued.

I was pleased with how the journal looked and felt. Very luxurious..One problem...the journal had an unusual aroma. It was very strong at first but I aired it out for a week or so and now it's fine. I purchased this as a gift and I couldn't give it smelling the way it did, so it was a late Christmas gift. Maybe someone needs to look into that aroma issue. Otherwise, I highly recommend this journal. The paper used is of very good quality, in my opinion. I think the cover will last for a long time.
