Review: Hahnemuhle Travel Journal and Travel Booklets

I forget exactly how I stumbled across the Hahnemuhle Travel Journal, but this is the website where I first remember seeing it, and the photo that got me all excited: Heaton Cooper Studio Nice plain black covers, a somewhat chunky shape, and no yucky cover overhang!

Journals in Istanbul

I spotted this photo in the newspaper not long ago and immediately recognized one of the spots where I’d seen some blank journals being sold in Istanbul, near the entrance to a book bazaar. Nice to know that guy still has his spot!
