I love these journals. They feel wonderful and a great to write in. It is a great writing experience.
Komang's notebooks came so beautifully wrapped, that I almost didn't want to open them. Once I did, though, lovely earth fragrances greeted me and the vibrant colors and textures of these notebooks made me realize what a wonderful treasure I had discovered. My plan is to use them as scrapbooks for all the 'extras' that come with each item I've purchased from Novica (artists' stories, postcards, wrapping and ribbons). The craftmanship and artistic talent that went into designing these notebooks is breathtaking, and I plan to purchase more of Komang's books to share as gifts. Thank you, Komang, for notebooks that I will truly treasure!!!
This book is a treasure! Far more impressive than the photograph for the quality of care in every aspect of its construction. I got it as a gift for my partner as he tells wonderful stories of his childhood. Though he does not journal, I encouraged him to use this beautiful book to write those stories that they may be enjoyed by his children and perhaps grandchildren some day. I am an artist in the US, graduated from a well known art college. Freshman year, the Calligraphy class required that we create a book from scratch, including end papers, binding, cover etc. It took a month of serious effort and I am proud of my creation, but easily admit that this book far exceeds my own. It is simply beautiful.
