"The Vera" Watercolor Journal combines our unique blend of traditional bookbinding techniques, The Farmstead’s custom leatherwork process, and we throw in a little 1940s typewriter to mix it up.

The journal's binding combines a classic French Link and Coptic Stich, designed, so your journal lays flat when watercoloring. These techniques make an extremely durable, beautiful, and timeless journal that ages beautifully and lasts a lifetime.
