the very first journal i was gifted with was when i was 15. it was from Bali w/ seed pods & banana leaves on the cover ~ on the inside was this wonderfully textured straw paper - i'm 34 now & i stil prefer writng in thoughtfully handcrafted journals like these from Bali. i especially like the "window" for a photograph as this will be used to record memories of my baby o(^___^)o the quality is gorgeous for the price as i am a thrifty shopper & don't think art should be too expensive to enjoy being an artist myself. i like that this supports an artisan in a third world country as i am orginally from the Philippines as well. salamat!
I love these journals. They feel wonderful and a great to write in. It is a great writing experience.
After I purchased Komang Sulaksana's Autumn Spirit in Green notebooks, my daughter wanted some of her own. For her 7th birthday, I got her this set of six small notebooks. She loves them and plans to use them to create her own books (that she will write and illustrate). The craftmanship and artistic talent that went into designing these notebooks is breathtaking, and my daughter is so pleased with them. Thank you, Komang Sulaksana, for notebooks that my family will truly treasure!!!
