This journal is absolutely beautiful, especially if you’re already a fan of Jasmine Becket-Griffith’s artwork. Although it’s not hardcover, like other Blue Angel Publishing journals it is a strong sturdy paper cover and the signatures are stitched.
Pages are ivory, some lined and some blank. Occasionally there is line art of one of her pictures that you can color on the page. These are small and tucked into corners. There are also occasional quotes but they’re not on every page and they’re not too cringe. They seem to go along with the journal, like this quote from Dr. Seuss, “I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.”
Throughout the book are full-page, full-color reproductions of several of her artworks, which is probably the primary reason someone would choose this journal over another. They are gorgeous. If you’ve previously bought any of her coloring books, calendars, decks or other products, you’ve probably seen many or most of these images before. I spotted several favorites.
This is easily one of the most beautiful journals I own. It would make a lovely tarot journal, book of shadows, or, like the cover says, writing and creativity journal.
