Write Your Heart Out
(Green edition)

MMXVIII

Write Your Heart Out is our flagship journal. This timeless keepsake is filled with everyday journaling prompts to help you preserve your story in 2018. 

    Overview

    This journal has 180 pages, and every page has a prompt. Each prompt has been thoughtfully crafted to help you capture your story. The prompts are intentionally numbered, rather than dated, so that you have the freedom to write when you want to. 

    Smyth sewn binding

    Each journal is section sewn, which means that the pages are physically sewn into the book using binders' thread and further reinforced with fabric backing and adhesive. Library quality and archival safe, this centuries-old bookbinding technique—otherwise known as Smyth sewn binding—produces the highest-quality binding in the bookbinding industry. The Smyth sewn binding also means that each journal lies completely flat when open, making it easy to document your story.

    Italian fine art paper

    For the journal pages, we have chosen a fine art paper stock with a luxurious weight. The paper is manufactured by a family-owned mill in Italy using only pulp that comes from certified responsible forests. (You can read more about that here.) The paper has a subtle but beautiful vellum texture and, being acid free and pH neutral, it is also archival.

    English library buckram

    Each journal is covered in a traditional English library buckram that is strong, durable, wipeable, scuff resistant, and water resistant. It is the leading library buckram in the UK (and has been since the 1950s), and it is found in many libraries all over the world. The buckram is also acid free and pH neutral.
