These leather journals from Tactile Craftworks start with supple leather hides sourced from a Milwaukee tannery.  The hides are then hand-cut and etched with antique map designs of old American cities, which makes these Etched Leather Map Journals perfect as a travel journal.

The maps are all of the 1890-1920s eras from the collections of the American Geographical Society.  The covers are all made of high-quality, full-grain leather with brass button closures.  They measure 6″ x 9″ x 1″ and have a 240-page Moleskine notebook with lined paper inside.  The Moleskine can be replaced, making this journal useable for a life-time.

You can choose from 16 city designs or from a cover with a simple pine tree design.  The Etched Leather Map Journal is $118.00 and available from The Grommet.
