TYPES OF TRAVEL JOURNAL COVERS
Earlier than selecting a journey journal, I’d counsel to take a look on the kind of binding you want most in your pocket book. That is the fabric that’s used to make the higher (entrance) and decrease (again) covers of the journal.
One other factor to have a look at is the way in which the pages are hooked up to the covers/again of the pocket book. Each of those elements actually change the way in which a journal opens and the way you should utilize it.
For instance, a saddle-stitch bind is when paper is folded with a staple or thread by means of the fold. PUR binding makes use of a paperboard or heavy cowl inventory to connect pages to the backbone with glue (like in a paperback guide). With spiral binding, there’s a loop wire going by means of holes within the cowl and pages (Nick hates these, as he’s left-handed and in some way all the time finds the wire in his approach when writing), and with part sewn binding or coptic sew binding, you get a versatile backbone so you possibly can lay the pages flat to work on.
As for the quilt, you possibly can select between a hardcover or a extra versatile, tender cowl.
I personally don’t like albums the place the pages which are sewn or stitched to tightly, as a result of while you add plenty of objects (photographs, stickers, receipts, tickets, and many others.) to your album, it makes it inconceivable to shut it correctly after.
In these instances, tender covers can then make it simpler to shut the album (with a ribbon or elastic or one thing like that).
After I create a journey journal that’s extra closely centered on simply writing or albums with solely pictures, the pages could be a bit tighter and a hardcover is normally finest.
So you possibly can see how the way in which you employ your journey pocket book modifications the kind of journey journal cowl you select. After which we haven’t even talked concerning the choices in design, that are infinite! Let’s get extra into that now…
