I received my journal in the mail today (one day ahead of the expected delivery date :) I am in awe of the incomparable beauty of this book. The binding, the leather, the size, the smell, the feel..........It's absolutely the best journal I've ever had the pleasure of owning. I purchased the extra thick 6X9 inch leather journal. It is perfection. I love the spine and the fact that it's rather weighty. It really is over 2 inches thick. Wow!! is all I could say when I opened the box. I love the velvety bag it comes in. You are too awesome. I have to buy more. Thank you so much for a great product. I'm going to buy another one. I think I will buy the hand-cut 6X9 and then I will wait before I write in the one I have now and I'll keep the one I like the best and give the other one to my mom.......or maybe I will keep them both because I don't think I'll be able to choose between them.

I bought the 11X15 size journal with hand cut paper as a gift for my husband; my idea was that he could use it as a guest book for his cabin. I hoped he would like it. He LOVES it. He can hardly even let anyone write in it! (though he's getting over that) After getting it out, he puts it back in the fabric drawstring bag it came in - every time. It really is beautiful - heavy, rich, and dark with gorgeous, smooth cream pages. Thank you!

Several months ago we spoke on the phone when I was looking for a leather bound journal. After we got off the phone I purchased the lined "Journal of Thoughts". The book was truly a beautiful piece of art. I wish all the books in my library could have the same quality and bindings as the books from Epica. Alas I have completed that journal and today have purchased the next one. However this time I took your advise and bought the unlined, 8X10 journal with hand cut pages. I anticipate it's arrival as a child looks for Santa on Christmas. The quality of your books is unsurpassed and I have yet to find their equal. You were very gracious on the phone and a joy to speak with. Thank you for your advice, your assistance, and you wonderful books.

We received our leather journal with handmade Amalfi paper today and are absolutely thrilled! We always approach ordering an item like this over the Internet with some trepidation but this is above and beyond what we expected. The leather cover is gorgeous, perfectly distressed for a bit of old-world charm. The paper is thick and inviting, sure to inspire many creative comments. We will be using our journal as a guest book for our new winery and we think this journal perfectly compliments a glass of cabernet. Thanks so much for a beautiful book and over and above customer service. We will definitely be ordering again!

I was looking for a gift for a very good friend and wanted to give her something special. I was delighted to discover your website and its wonderful selection of leather bound journals. I ended up buying her an 8 x 10 leather journal with Amalfi pages. I was hoping that she would enjoy the gift, but her reaction exceeded my wildest expectations. She couldn't have been happier. She writes a daily journal and sketches, and she has used the journal every day since she received it. I can't recommend your journals highly enough. Instead of an impersonal gift certificate or yet another picture frame, your beautifully crafted journals make a gift to treasure for a lifetime.
