Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat

The paper quality is nice and heavy, great for traveling with and surviving a journey. I love that the pages are blank and not lined, as I draw and collage and scrapbook with polaroids, so the blank pages will let me do whatever I want.
Nice thick pages and great quality journal.
LOVE THE TWO SCRATCH OFF PAGES
Bought this as a gift for a family member this Christmas. The person I gave it to loved it! I appreciated that the journal had two of the scratch off (maps/state park) features which will be great for the traveller I bought it for.
HAD TO BUY ONE FOR MYSELF
This is the second one I've bought. I got one as a gift and loved it so much I had to buy one for myself!
