UPCOMING: Custom Ledger and Daybooks

Most contemporary account books are not built to withstand everyday usage and have tight entry rulings. This the goal of this project is to create and reissue day journals and ledger books, with an emphasis on high quality binding and page construction/layout. Pages will use a narrow page format, which compresses the folio spread to a single page (rather than two pages). Line ruling will also be wider to allow for compfort in writing for everyday use.

Ledger books will be larger, designed for home/office use.

Daybooks will be smaller, designed for portable use.
