A slim profile. Perfectly simple, sturdy covers. Vintage marbled end papers. High-quality paper stock. Sewn-in-signature binding. These 68-page journals are just the place for a life-list, a collection of ideas, or the outline of that project you’ve been waiting to start. You know the one.
The “End Papers” Edition feels a bit more permanent than a simple use-and-abuse Memo Book; it’s a classic and practical take on a personal journal. They are Field Notes, however, so please, let’s not call them “fancy.”
