Question ID: 729720
Where can I get another perfect, leather-bound journal?  I found the
perfect journal for my notes and musings.  Its soft, durable, looks
good, and is just the right size.  However, I cannot find a place to
buy another one.  I want another one just like it if possible.  On the
inside back cover, it has a logo with this brand "Art Works Intl,
Inc." made in Korea.  The ISBN # is 1-57938-061-1

Hello kverde-ga,

The logo information and ISBN didn't lead to a quick identification 
of the journal you're looking for. Please expand on your description
of your desired journal.

How big is it -- dimensions and number of pages? What is "just the
right size"? Do you want a lined or unlined journal? What color cover
and paper do you prefer? What type of leather -- smooth, textured,
embellished, etc.?

It would be very helpful if you would upload a picture to show us
exactly what the "perfect, leather-bound journal" looks like. Here's a
site you can use to share your pictures with us.

I look forward to your clarification.

6.75" X 4.5" Approx 180 pages (or 360 if you count front and back). 
The pages are lined.  The outside paper edges are gold.  The front of
the leather cover has a navigational compass-like design stamped in
it--its subtle and stylish.  It has a leather tab from the back cover
that tucks into a small belt-loop on the front cover.  It has a black
page-finder ribbon.  The spine has 3 sets of pairs of gold lines.  The
bottom of the spine has an image of what looks like a church or small
town (also in gold lines).

These are not the exact size you ask for, but they sure are beautiful!

Hello kverde-ga,

I, too, have strong preferences in the types of journals I like. It
seems that the journal you described is no longer available. I browsed
through dozens of websites and I can provide you with links to several
journals that I think might be to your liking as well as online stores
where you can continue your explorations. Will this meet your needs?

I look forward to your clarification.

Another journal that is very close would meet my needs and I would
consider this answered.  Specifically, "understated" design, soft
leather (bends, is not "stiff"), durable, similar size, and reasonable
cost and availability.

Thanks for your time.

Hello kverde-ga,

It?s frustrating when you can?t find your favorite personal or
household item because it has been discontinued. I?m sorry I couldn?t
locate any trace of the exact journal you describe. There are dozens
of stationery, office supply and other specialty stores that offer  a
huge variety of journals. Below I?ve listed the ones that look like a
close match for the journal style you?re trying to locate.

I?ve tried to find journals that meet all your criteria. The journals
I?m listing have most/all of the features you asked for. In some cases
I couldn?t tell whether a journal was hard or soft covered or ruled or
unlined. The price of the journals also ranges from $25 to over $100.
I didn?t know what price you considered ?reasonable.?

I trust that you will be able to find something suitable from the
variety of journals I?ve listed. Many of the websites I?ve included
also offer many other journals in addition to the one I?m suggesting
for you. Be sure to browse the pages to explore the possibilities.

I trust that you will find a new ?perfect? leather bound journal to
replace the one that?s no longer available.

Wishing you well in your quest.
