After spending a half hour looking and deciding, I settled on a 5.5″x7″ leatherbound traveler’s journal (similar to those seen here). The creamy paper and dark brown pebbled calfskin are exquisite. When I paid for it, the owner placed a small golden seal on the inside cover, with the name of the shop in Gothic black writing. This attention to detail and obvious love for the products in the shop was infectious and very romantic. It makes me wish I was a writer!
Unfortunately, I haven’t had many adventures to chronicle since that trip, and as such it’s still safe in the provided drawstring bag.
I highly suggest that if you are in Rome (as we all are from time to time, right?) and if you have a love for fine writing, you check out this gem of a shop.
