--Custom Order Golden Book Journal
LOOKING FOR A "READY TO SHIP" JOURNAL? You can now shop from images of the covers we have on hand (can we get a shout HOORAY?)! Please see the new section of our store [HERE].
LOOKING FOR A CUSTOM JOURNAL?
We can make any **CURRENTLY IN PRINT** Little Golden Book that you can find on Amazon.com into a journal (it can't be used or from a 3rd party seller because we can't' see the condition of the cover. If you are looking for a used book see below*).
Just let us know which one you'd like in the comments to the seller, we'll get it ordered and have your journal custom made for you. Please note that custom journals require 7 working days to complete.
*We specialize in acquiring rare and hard to find, out of print Golden Books. Just contact us and we'll do our best to find the Little Golden Book of your dreams! We have hundreds of books here in the studio and if we don't have it we love the challenge of finding it for you. (prices can vary due to rarity, but we'll always let you know of any book upcharge before you commit to a journal).
1. We can make a journal from a Little Golden Book in your collection. Just check out with this listing for a custom journal and ask for our address in the comments to the seller. The price is $40+shipping.
2. We're sorry but we can't use "My First Golden Book" or "Big Little Golden Books" to make our journals. Also, the series "Everything I needed to know I learned from..." books don't work either as they are bound differently and don't' actually have the beautiful gold foil binding.
3. It doesn't have to be a Disney themed book. There are hundreds and hundreds of Little Golden books out there. Dream big and outside the box. We would love to help you find a journal from your childhood.
Travel back to the days of your childhood with our unique, hand-sewn journal using Golden Book covers! The paper in this journal is 140 lb cold press watercolor paper (all of our paper is HAND TORN). Perfect for Art Journaling, sketching, pen & ink, or simply used as a diary.
You can just put a note in the "Notes to Seller" about which cover you want and we'll send you a photo of the cover for your final approval. If you aren't crazy about it, choose another, we're happy to work with you until you find one that brings back all those memories.
This journal measures approximately 8″ tall, 6. 5″ wide, 1.25″ thick, made from a classic size Golden Book. It has 5 signatures with 12 pages each for a total of 60 pages (sides) not including the cover.
All of the Golden Books used for our journals are carefully taken apart. Each signature of blank watercolor paper is hand numbered and torn to fit inside the cover, then finally they are hand sewn using waxed polyester thread (longer life than linen thread!).
Because these Golden Books live the full circle of life (Manufacturer---> consumer---> consumer uses book until resold---> we buy again---> given a new life as a journal) you can expect some light wear and tear on the covers. This should be considered part of each of their unique character and story!
Want a Golden Book we don't have? We'll do our best to find it and order it for you. Please use the "Contact Us" page. (Additional fee may be required and will require additional working days while we wait for the shipment).
