The sizes given in Amazon's Product Details and Product Description are contradictory. The correct size for the cover is 3.5" x 5.5" and the paper is a slightly smaller. Thickness is about 1/2".
192 pages means 96 sheets. Paper is cream-colored, smooth uncoated, strong but thin with a lot of show through. Lines are dark grey. Line-spacing is a bit tight--under 7/32", giving 20 lines to write in plus top and bottom margins of approximately 1/2" each.
Well made. Binding uses sewn signatures. Does not lie flat.
Covers are stiff but bendable cardboard covered with "genuine bonded leather." Translation: "real fake leather." The label says, "80% genuine cowhide leather fibers and 20% non-leather materials." I guess that's fake leather composed of bits and pieces of real leather and other stuff. "Genuine bonded leather" is reminiscent of the furniture retailers' expression, "solid engineered wood." I.e., sawdust and glue. Anyway, it looks okay and smells like leather.
Made in China.
These are a good deal at $6 to $7, but in the past Amazon's price has spiked to $15. They are way overpriced at that point. The brown and black versions are often priced differently. Currently, the brown version is almost double the price of the black.
The leather is as tough as a hardcover. (It is made of 80% cowhide and 20% nonleathers, whatever that means)
There is a pocket in the inside back to hold pages and other items.
Thin ribbon bookmark to save your pages.
Elastic band to keep your journal shut.
The page lines are narrow ruled and unperforated. It is not a school notebook after all.
The pages bleed through if you use a marker or thick pen.
The pages are not a bright white, but more of a cream or off white.
The journal is small. If you want to know the exact size. Get a sheet of computer paper, turn it sideways, and fold it half. That's the size of this journal.
I mistakenly ordered the bigger size, and decided to return it because I wanted a journal I could fit into my tiny purses. I went to my local Walmart and picked up the small-sized version for only $5.99. I really like it! I use a regular ball-point pen, so I don't have any problems with ink bleeding through. Fits well in my tiny purses and it's simple, yet adorable.
I have ordered this journal (MJ5-4792) seven times in the past going back to 2013. I use it everyday at work. Until now I would have considered this a 5 star product. The most recent order (8/31/16) however has changed my opinion. The new page design doesn't work for me at all. There are fewer ruled lines per page. I preferred the thinner lines so I could get more writing per page. Also there is now a 1" un-ruled margin. The old version had no un-ruled margins. Again, that means much less writing space for me per page than the old version. The un-ruled margins may work for some people but it's wasted space for me. I will start looking for another product. If CR Gibson sells the old version I will continue to buy that and change my rating to 5 starts. It would have been nice for them to use a different model number if they were going to make this kind of change. I click "buy again" on Amazon for items that I like, but this is now a different product. They should include a picture of the new page design on the Amazon product page. I have included my own photo which shows the old MJ5-4792 on the left and the new MJ54792 on the right.
