At present I am not making journals and blank books. I would recommend supporting handmade arts and crafts by buying from independant artists, artisans and crafters. The following artisans have journals ready-made and available for purchase. Most of these artisans will make custom journals on request. Many are working with recycled materials, vegan materials and eco-friendly materials to produce unique, attractive and usable journals.
