No. 23E Embossed Pocket Journal

Just one look at the new No. 20E Leather Pocket Journal should take you back in time. Do you ever wonder what happened to class and style along the way to today?

“I was inspired to make this No. 23E Leather Pocket Journal when I came across a seemingly mundane old leather bank pocket journal from the 1920’s, that was embossed and executed in such elegant and painstaking fashion it made me ask myself why all our personal effects can’t be special.”

This journal, presented in polished vintage brown full-grain leather lined in cognac calfskin, is definitely special with its vintage-inspired beautifully embossed border design.

Perfect for shirt, jacket pocket or bag, the No. 23E Leather Pocket Journal comes with 50 lined Col. Littleton note cards which fit into the tabbed leather holder at the back of the journal and a 60-page lined register (cards and register may be dated and filed away and reordered as needed). The register pocket also allows room for business cards, receipts, etc. 5 ½”H x 3 ¾”W closed.   Edge stitched. May be personalized with three initials on front cover. Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop. USA

  1. Received my No.23E Embossed Pocket Journal today. Everything about this item says “Quality”. The box it came in was very nice “Quality”. The canvass bag itself is a unique item of “Quality”. The Pocket Journal is beautiful and well made “Quality”. I ordered extra index cards and they also are of the highest “Quality”. I bought this item to use for my Biblical Hebrew course. Its an ideal choice and size for jotting down troublesome verbs and notes that can be easily accessed for review and study. It is most refreshing to do business with people who care about the quality of the product they produce! Thank you for the mooncake (and the story that went with it-my great granddad always had a roll of NECO’s in his pocket that he would share!) and the leather coaster also! Who doesn’t like leather! I look forward to future purchases. Well worth the price. I highly recommend this item!

  2. Received the pocket journal as a Fathers Day gift. The embossed edge gives it a classic, heirloom look. As always, excellent quality. Wish there was a small pencil holder built in. I love it!


  3. I ordered this journal on a weekend where free personalization was being offered – yet the shopping cart never credited me back for the personalization upcharge. I made a call to the office on Monday, and everything was handled seamlessly and with apologies for the initial problem . Great product, great personal service, what else could I ask for?

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
