Next to books, I have a love affair with journals/notebooks. I love filling up the pages with my thoughts, doodles and plot ideas, and the prospect of finding a nifty volume of blank pages to write on is something that I really look forward to do.
A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon Alunsina Handbound Books, an indie crafts business of Nadja Castillo and Enan Juniosa. The couple specialize in handmade coptic-bound journals, which are to die for. I gifted my two writer friends with these journals on their wedding day and I'm pretty much sure they loved it as much as I did. :)
And right now, I'm currently salivating over their Terrene Journal. I love the nice decoupage Old World map design, the embellishments, and of course, the paper used. I can really vouch for the quality of Alunsina's handbound creations, if you're a stickler for details and craftsmanship. I'm thinking of getting one, and so should you! :)
