This is the Ciak Journal, made in Florence, Italy. It's covered in a luxurious leather that's notched on the center of the covers to hold the elastic rope in place. So nice to hold.
"This is Ciak, the handy and versatile notebook, soft and coloured, which comes into everybody's lives and pockets. It is easily recognised thanks to its exclusive and surprising closure, which confers character on the simplicity of its white pages.
A black elastic band which opens and closes to release or protect your most hidden thoughts, and which embraces everything important that has been written. Essential and without fringes, Ciak is ready to be customised, filled and characterised by intimate and personal words, sketches and emotions."
