The Galapagos Scholar

The Galapagos Scholar

Travel to another time and place where exotic creatures dwell and the cool ocean breeze kisses your face with this one of a kind, intuitively designed, completely handcrafted tome.


Journals are portals to the sacred internal world of emotions, thoughts, and memories. They’re a constant friend, a reminder to reflect, and a time capsule for future generations. Whether you’re looking for a Book of Shadows, a dream journal, a diary journal, a gratitude journal, a guest register, or an exceptional gift, you can be sure that this intentionally crafted tome will serve you well for years to come.


This particular journal has been inspired by my love of the 2003 film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. It includes incredible upcycled antique covers dating to 1830 which I have edged with aged linen, a grungy sari ribbon closure with a vintage skeleton key, a royal purple double sided velvet bookmark, a tissue guard over an elegant title page, numerous extra papers and pieces of ephemera scattered throughout, 30 digital stamps, 15 hand stamps, 4 charms hanging from the outside edge, and a name plate as well as a pocket on the inside of the back cover. Every page has been individually dyed with neutralized coffee for a beautiful, aged effect, and several pages have burn marks, ripped corners, or ink splatter.


The carefully handsewn, Coptic Stitch spine is an element of design in and of itself and will make this book stand out from every other one on the shelf. This ancient style of binding is as flexible as it is strong, allowing the book to lay completely flat when open and providing a smooth writing surface with every page.


Additionally, all journals are energetically cleansed and infused with powerful intentions to promote greater self-love wherever they go. My dream is not simply to create beautiful writing spaces, but to create a more sacred and self-aware society, one tome and one person at a time.


Each journal is a piece of my soul, handcrafted from start to finish with pure love, exquisite care and genuine inspiration in my sacred, smoke-free home studio.
