Welcome to Bittner - The Pleasure of Writing!
The Bittner Travel Journal is hand bound right here in our workshop in the United States by our expert bookbinder using specialized binding techniques. This sturdy journal is expandable (so you can keep mementos in it) yet lightweight enough to be carried with you. It is intended to be used; the more you use it the better feeling it will become.
Our tavel journal has 280, 6” by 8 ½” pages (140 sheets) of beautiful white paper available blank, or with lined ruling. It is made in Italy and is ideal for fountain pen writing, drawing, sketching, water colors, journaling, and note taking. The paper holds fountain pen ink amazingly well. It does not bleed and is mostly smooth in texture with a slight tooth. It is ideal for any nib size, from extra fine to broad, even flexible nibs!
Our Travel Journals are finished with chap leather -- so named for its use making cowboy chaps -- which is well-known for its durability and protection against abrasion and wear. The tanning and dyeing processes for our leather produce a steadfast finish in beautiful, bright colors, that lasts for many years to come. The Bittner Travel Journal closes via a hand braided and waxed tie made from Irish linen 12-ply, 6-string cord that wraps around the journal.
