States of Mind
Bearing a birch inlay in the shape of your choice of US state, this journal's sustainably sourced cedar cover makes a gorgeous frame for its 96 lined pages. Whether it's a traveler's impressions, a recent graduate's dreams, a cook's favorite recipes, or a newly promoted manager's big plans, this journal will faithfully preserve those moments of thought, no matter what state of the union—or of mind—they happen to be written in.
For inspiration, go local: In Massachusetts, Nathaniel Hawthorne and his wife kept a beautiful chronicle of their love. In Louisiana, then-researcher Zora Neale Hurston's diary became a record of New Orleans hoodoo folklore and practices. John Steinbeck and Joan Didion wrote many a diary page in California. Handmade in Minnesota (where F. Scott Fitzgerald began keeping a diary at 13—mostly listing the girls he liked).
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
