last word on the Wartime Log and the ultimate in Moleskines

 A special copy of The Wartime Log for a friend.  This one features goatskin spine and fore edge strips with sides in a one of my paste papers that I thought had a slight flavour of barbed wire. Suitable for a memoir about life in Stalag Luft III.
 And the last word in fancy Moleskine style bindings - complete with cloth gusseted pocket.  The text block is a special thin but very opaque Japanese machine made paper very successful for use with a fountain pen. Yes, there still such stalwarts out in the world who know the satisfaction of keeping a hand written journal and the unique feel of a good pen.  I should know. I'm one of them.  These were for a customer with good taste.  Now I want one.
