Format: Hardcover
Peter Pauper Press journals are, as a collection, just beautiful, but this particular journal is definitely my favorite. The paper feels smooth and substantial, and the faint lining on the pages ensures straight sentences but doesn't dominate a filled page. The binding is sturdy, which is an important factor for me as I've purchased this journal to chronicle a summer of travel. The cover does fold flat, as advertised, although the pages seem rather stiff. There is also a small pocket in the back, large enough to hold a handful of 5x7 photos. But the best part of this journal is the cover -- the delicate Queen Anne's lace and butterflies seem to guarantee lovely and ethereal journal entries. All in all, a beautiful book, certainly worth the price.

The size makes it perfect to tote around anywhere. The quality of the binding and the pages is superb. Unlike another reviewer said, it IS lined but the lines are faint. Once written in it looks good on the page because the lines are so light. I plan on purchasing more like this in the future because they're good little journals for a variety of uses.

The cover attracted me to buy it because I thought it was adorable.
The paper is really thick, but also, like coldpress. My pen is a fountain pen, and it seems to absorb it well, so I don't have any problems but possible smearing problem for non-fast drying pens (something like pilot pens). But ballpoint seems to work well.
I feel like I can write in it all the time, but seems like it won't last me a year.

Considering the price and the quality, this journal is a good buy. You will be hard-pressed to find a journal of this quality at anywhere near this price ($10). Having purchased it at such a reasonable price as a gift for a preteen, I wasn't going to haggle over the couple of barely-noticeable imperfections on the cover (dings and small marks); it could be that I just happened to get a not-quite-perfect one.

The 160 pages are of fairly heavy weight (perfect for a fountain pen!), and because of the non-slick finish, they are probably easy to write on. The faint lines on the pages are a plus for those who have trouble writing in a straight line -- and most likely, once written on, are barely noticeable.

As an heirloom seamstress, I question the use of the term acid-free "archival paper," which could be somewhat misleading -- although unintentional. Lignin is also a major player in heirloom/archival products, and this journal is not said to be free of lignin. So, if you want a journal that can be handed down from generation to generation, you may want to purchase one that is free of both acid and lignin instead.

The size (6-1/4" w X 8-1/4" h) is very handy, and the fold-over, magnetic closure that protects the edges of the pages is a definite plus.

BOTTOM LINE: This journal is, in my opinion, a great buy for the money and a somewhat impressive gift for the average person. I would have given it five stars had it not been for the couple of barely-noticeable imperfections.

This book was beautiful and just a perfect size for its use. My 90-year old aunt was having trouble remembering good things that happened to her on a daily basis, people that visited, etc., and was getting depressed because she felt alone. We live thousands of miles away but I told her that perhaps she should start writing things down and sent her this journal. Between her daughter and her they've started writing when people visit...some of her visitors write in the book too..it gives her something to read that is dated and makes her smile. That smile is what we were after.

Diaries are good things...be you a teenager or in the fall/winter of your life. This journal is easily open; stays closed with the magnet is a good lap size and very delicately colored...just perfect. Thank you.

This is a very nice journal with a pretty and sturdy cover. The magnetic closure works very well, however it is a little hard to open as there is not any good way to grasp the edge to pull it away from the other side. The journal is nice and thick with average weight paper. The pages are ruled and the spacing between the lines is just right, not cramped or too far apart, however the lines are very faint and a little hard to see. The only thing missing that would have been handy is a ribbon marker, there is not one. But all in all, this is a very pretty, feminine journal with good closure.

This journal is stunning! I have the matching stationary and bought this because I love the print so much. The size is the same as a standard journal - see the size as the listing states. I'm not sure why others are surprised and think this is small. Lines on my pages are not faint and I can write on them easily. The cover snaps together nicely. I am very happy with this purchase.

Pretty cover, but the lines on the paper are pretty faint--unless you're in a brightly lit area, they're very hard to see. If you like lined paper, as I do, this probably isn't for you.
