SOLD OUT! Our City Books Reader’s Journal is custom made by Vince Curtis, owner of VersLibris, a book binder and artisanal journal maker north of Pittsburgh. They arrive in small batches and sell quickly. Each edition is limited to 20 copies.

We SOLD OUT at 6 PM 12/7. I am waiting to hear back from Vince about getting more before Christmas.

Handmade Reader’s Journals by VersLibris. Swipe for more detail.

Covers are kraft paper-covered boards bound with brown tape. Inside the back cover is a library pocket to store clippings or book reviews, and a library card to use as a bookmark or to keep track of who has borrowed a book. Page data allows the reader to track bibliographic information as well as reading dates, DNR notes, recommendation quality, and lending status.

Dimensions: 6.25″ x 4.25″. The journal is thin enough to carry in a pocket or day bag and fits well in the palm of the hand. It has 36 double-sided pages. If this print run sells out before the end of December 2021, we will not have more until early 2022.
