  1. Ordered this earlier this week and it came within two business days. I love the journal. It is so soft and just the right size for writing. I just ordered the #28 for work notes. The moon pie was a surprise! Excellent quality on the journal and will be become an heirloom.

  2. I love journals. I have 4-5 running at any given time for various projects. I write a ton, and I just want to say that I WANT to love this journal but it’s not very practical. The issues are thus:

    1. lined paper is only lined on one side.

    2. lined paper is proprietary and costs $15 per refill

    2. the leather straps through the paper prevent any smooth movement through the pages and you’re constantly fussing with spreading them out to write in an easy fashion.

    But man…. it is gorgeous. I have it on a shelf near my desk, next to 6 other notebooks/journals, but I haven’t used it in 5 years now.

  3. I have spent 2 months looking for a journal that was made from real hide and had the inner flesh side exposed unlike mass produced leather journals. I searched Etsy… ordered a few but regretted buying cause with the flesh side came the problems of fuzz and nap shedding or dye leaching out. So before ordering from this shop I asked over an email if that would be the case and I was told that their products have not been reported to have such problems.

    Many people are not that specific or picky but I am and to my delight Col. Littleton really has delivered a piece of beautiful workmanship without anything to complain about. You can see the lines on the cover which are so natural and give so much character to this lovely piece. I am going to be their lifelong customer as they really have genuine leather products, I am sure of it after receiving my first journal cover from shop. It is a quaint little piece and I can see already it is going to age so well!! I cannot praise it enough with words. Overjoyed to receive it as a journal is such an intimate part of my life. You definitely should buy from here and you won’t regret even a little. And yes, the binding mechanism with the leather cord is so unique and vintage in style. Love all of it.

  4. I wish I could add a picture. This journal was originally a gift to me from my mother before her passing. We used it as our passport of those last few months… and now my daughter wants to share in those pages. The quality and craftsmanship are beyond compare. When searching for the perfect gift for someone I truly care about, this journal is what immediately came to mind for her. It’s so beautiful it almost feels like sacrilege writing in it, but then I remember that this is something to be passed down and I know that it truly is worthy of an heirloom. So thank you for that.

  5. My dear friend and trusted financial advisor surprised me with a gift of a No. 9 Journal. Quality and workmanship have no peer! The Colonel does it right!!

  6. After all these years, I can’t believe I haven’t left a review. My apologies. I’ve been carrying around this journal for well over 10 years. It has been to several countries, and almost all 50 states. I prefer to use the unlined journal filler because I include pictures (figured my writings by themselves would bore a reader to death). Long story short, this journal has held up remarkably well. It’s held whatever I stick in the pages nice and tight, including my antique fountain pens. I gifted one to my brother years ago, and he puts just as many miles on his. Definitely heirloom quality.

  7. Purchased my third No. 9 Journal recently, and was quite pleased, as usual, with the service, delivery and the product. I have also purchased two of the pocket journals, one that I carry daily and one for cruises.

    I have nothing but high praise for Col. Littleton’s products and service, and am looking at making another purchase.

    Keep up the great work.

  9. I just received my No. 9 and I am absolutely thrilled! It is gorgeous and a total conversation piece. I cherish the opportunity to spend time in the mornings writing in this glorious little journal!

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.
