Illustrated Hobby Journals

These illustrated journals offer prompts that encourage reflection on your favorite hobby.


The Write Habit For Your Hobby

Whether a casual hobby or personal obsession, your favorite pastime deserves documentation to add personal history, track improvement, and bring depth to your experience. These artistic, distinctively designed and vibrantly illustrated hobby journals are full of inspiring images and enticing prompts to provide the right dose of motivation and encourage a new level of reflection on that all-consuming amateur pursuit. They're full of convenient tips, diagrams and structured sections, but leave ample space for free writing and drawing on lined and gridded pages. Each engaging journal is handsomely bound in exposed greyboard covers with a handy built-in elastic closure, and sized to take along wherever your hobby may take you. Published in the UK; printed & bound in China.

Embellished with extensive drawings, the Illustrated Cooking Journal is a worthy repository for treasured family recipes as well as daring new culinary experiments. Its illustrated charts and diagrams show the anatomy of fruits and vegetables and baking and dessert tips. Merlin Evans' detailed pen-and-ink drawings bring to mind Victorian scientific etchings, but have a playful warmth that makes them distinctly contemporary. Aspiring culinary writers will make use of the abundant, unscripted space for notes, recipes and comments.

In the Illustrated Gardening Journal, garden design, planting logs, weed defense and a hearty crop of gardening tips are brought to life through Rebecca Truscott-Elves’ vibrant watercolors. From ways to encourage wildlife visits to the secret life of worms, this journal will become a go-to guide and record of backyard horticulture. Plenty of space is left for the gardener to propagate his or her own notes, diagrams and plans for future planting.

In the Illustrated Nature Journal Fiona Biddington's warm, gestural sketches make the perfect illustrations to encourage study of the infinite variety of nature - from lichens to constellations of stars. Checklists for spotting plant and animal species are accompanied by plenty of space to write, sketch and interact with prompts like "Make a Study of a Dandelion." This journal is ideal for both the seasoned naturalist and the neophyte beginning to explore the wonders of nature.

Comments about UncommonGoods Illustrated Hobby Journals:

Thoughtful small gift, great for the price, met its description and appearance. Always satisfied with Uncommon Goods merchandise--as an aside, I purchased something else from another company I had planned to give with this gift, but the other item failed its promises, so I may be going through the headache of a "return". . .this last purchase from Uncommon Goods has made me a loyal customer.
