Where to Find Good Leather Sketchbooks

I live in Westerville OH and for some reason can't find any good leather journals/sketchbooks.  I say sketchbook because I don't want it to have any lines.  I checked barnes and nobles but all of their good leather journals have lines.  Any ideas on where to find some locally?  I don't really want to have to resort to ordering one off the internet because then I can't find out how good of quality the leather is and whatnot. 

Jo Anns, Michaels, every sunday go with a 40% one item coupon in the fine art dpt. where the canvas is/ paint /etc. and you will find a 24$ one for 40% off!

I am in the same boat as you (and live in Ohio as well! Must be an Ohio thing). I haven't found anything locally, but did find Rogue Journals online.

(it sounds like the aged parchment paper is the way to go. Durable and no lines)

I am getting ready to order a leather journal from them soon and am encouraged by the stellar rating they have on Amazon.com (Here is a link to one of the journals they have on there's feedback)


Hope this helps :-)

You could look in the phone book for art supplies stores, maybe stationery, don't know how close to town you are. If not, you can either find a cover that you like and replace the lined pages with your unlined sketch paper. Or do everything from scratch to make your own journal /sketch book. Not really that hard to do and there are a few instructables on it if you look up bookmaking, journals, etc. Good luck.
