Jason Thompson began making hand-bound books in 1991 after being inspired by one that his wife gave him as a birthday present. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As his company grew, Thompson hired more people and moved the business to six increasingly larger studios. His wife Ilira eventually joined the team as general manager, and now, Thompson employs a team of skilled artisans who create quality albums and books from hand.

When I opened the packaging and saw this beautiful journal, the first thing I did was sob because it was not for me... It is the absolute perfect reminder for a couple getting married to step back and remember WHY it is all happening.

          Disappointed that a bio was not included of the artist, the individual who first started building the books. It was provided online, but not with the book.

                It is beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. I am a "journaler" and look forward to writing in it for years and years with my husband. It's a lovely book and very well constructed, but I do think it is overpriced.

                    I bought this for a friend and her husband for their first anniversary and I'm excited to give it to them.

                    I'd read very positive reviews but was nervous that the journal would be small or kind of cheap - could not be more wrong. It's a large, absolutely gorgeous book. I carefully peeked through the pages and they are beautiful and cleanly designed. The ribbon binding... the color of the cover... I know that she will be absolutely thrilled with it.

                    I noticed some mention about the lack of room for photos, but you can easily put a picture on the back of each page. If my parents or grandparents had this, I'd have been obsessed with flipping through it growing up. This is easily the type of thing that turns into a treasured family heirloom.

                      Pages to celebrate up to 50 anniversaries, and some major ones have an extra page for photos. The prompts on each page work well to encourage writing and recording memories. But, importantly, it doesn't take too much effort to fill it out.

                      The reason I like the book (and I think my wife does too) is because we can see ourselves adding more to it every year. And we can see ourselves reading back over our old pages and remembering what life was like last year, 5 years ago, and 10 years ago. That's pretty cool.
