For Krishna, being in a universally creative mode means addressing life in a personal and intimate way. The Krishna Hardcover Blank Journal invites you to explore your own creativity. Combining craftsmanship and artistry, this deluxe hardcover journal is cased in scuff- and fingerprint-resistant, tactually rich leatherette, is elegantly debossed, and features a hand-selected, full-color painting of Krishna and lush endpaper illustrations by artist B.G. Sharma. With sturdy construction and sewn binding, the journal lies flat, and the 192 blank, acid-free pages of high-quality heavy stock paper take both pen and pencil nicely to invite a flow of inspiration. All this, plus a ribbon placeholder, elastic closure, and 7.5 x 4.5–inch back pocket, perfect for holding photographs and mementos, makes this B.G. Sharma Signature Edition the ultimate art-inspired portable journal.
