The Bodleian Library's exciting new range of journals showcases gorgeous illustrations from our collections on the covers.
Designed to be easily portable or to fit in a small bag, each hard cover journal is 207 x 140mm, with 160 lined pages of high quality paper. Every journal is finished with a sturdy elastic band closure, ribbon marker and elastic pen holder. An expanding wallet for storing papers is also included on the inside back cover.
This journal features ‘A balloon view of London', first published by J.H. Banks. It ran to many editions, of which this 1859 version with hand colouring was one of at least two published by the major London mapmaker Edward Stanford; he added the hot air balloon. As the viewer is looking south, from a viewpoint above Hampstead, the map appears ‘upside down’ compared to most maps of London with north at the top.
Produced to a high standard with careful attention to finishing and details, they make the perfect gift for all writers and stationery lovers.Exclusive to Bodleian Library Publishing with kind permission from The Tolkien Estate.
