Tactile Craftworks is proud to support the National Park Foundation, the official charity of the National Park System.

Our Park Journal pays tribute to one of our favorite things in this world, the National Parks. Whether you are chronicling a bold adventure, or quietly sketching at home, this journal will remind you of the nature you love.  We hand select each full-grain hide from Seidel Tannery, etch the leather with a pine silhouette taken from a mid-century travel brochure of Mt. Hood National Forest, stitch and finish it in our studio.

These journals also feature a raw edge cut straight from the hide, making each journal completely one-of-a-kind. It includes a lined Moleskine notebook which can be replaced again and again. It’s the perfect long-lasting gift for the artist, writer, or traveler in your life.

*As we make each item by hand with natural materials, there may be variations in your journal from the product that is pictured. Unless otherwise specified, all items are made to order. Please allow up to 1 week for shipping.*

"The Best Gift Ever!"

This is a quote from my son upon receiving his Yosemite National Park Map Journal. He, his wife and two children visit Yosemite regularly and this journal will now be used to capture all their adventures together there. He loved the beauty of the journal and its uniqueness. My heart was overjoyed with his joyful appreciation.

Absolutely Beautiful, But One Tiny Flaw

I bought the Yosemite journal, and I absolutely love it. The leather is sublime, the tool work subtle and, though new, the journal has a patina of "time" about it. It is bigger and heavier in the hand (or on your back) than I expected, but that was probably predictable based on the paper size. This isn't really a backpacking journal; it would be at home on a desk, nightstand, or in the car. And it feels great in your hands. That's not a flaw though. The flaw I mentioned in the title is the pen(cil) loop. A pencil is supplied with the journal, and it fits the loop just fine. But I personally cannot stand pencils; I much prefer a quality pen. But even the skinniest of my pens will not fit in the pen(cil) loop. In fairness, if your pen has a clip, it can be clipped to the loop and hang on the outside. Slightly kludgy, but functional. I plan to ask Tactile if they can custom-make me a journal with an enlarged loop. That would be perfect. That flaw is a small thing in an otherwise gorgeous piece.

Hi Greg, thank you so much for your honest review! We'd be happy to make you a custom-sized pen loop, you can shoot us an email any time. Also, for what it's worth, Sarah loves using a Hay Bullet Pen, which fits the pencil loop perfectly. Thank you again for supporting our work!

Yellowstone

I purchased the Yellowstone NP map journal as a gift for my lady friend. We are both supporters of all National Parks, but she loves Yellowstone the most. When I gave her the journal she absolutely loved it. She plans on keeping track of our travels on a daily basis. She's so happy now. Just my own opinion, great gift idea for anyone. Super nice quality and craftsmanship. We enjoy buying from small local businesses. You ladies did an awesome job.

Thanks for the journal

I like the A5 notebook size, which is a little different from the journal size they typically make. They made a journal in the A5 size for me, and even included an A5 notebook for me. This journal is excellent. This will be something that I'll have for many years. Thank you so much.
