The Second Leuchtturm (a journal)

When I looked back through my blogposts to see when I did my last journal post I was surprised that was three months ago and was about the end of the first Leuchtturm journal. In that time I have filled an entire journal of which I have shown you nothing yet! So I guess you could say I'm a bit behind on my journaling posts.

So today I want to introduce you to the Second Leuchtturm. I liked the Leuchtturm 1917 notebook so mucht that I immediately started another one. The only difference is that this one is has squared paper instead of a dotted grid. I actually like the dotted better, but I wanted a light blue book and they don't seem to make those anymore so I could only find a squared one.

Here you can see the Second Leuchtturm next to the first filled up one. This is obviously before it was used.

Anyway, today I will show you some spreads from the first 80 pages of this book. The book has 250 pages, so there are more posts to come about this journal.

These Leuchtturm1917 notebooks are somehow perfect for my style of journaling, which is basically like a travel journal of everyday life. They are not perfect in themselves and I would never advice anyone to use them as an allround sketchbook for instance, but for me they are a perfect match. I have a feeling this will not be the last book of this kind I will use as a journal.

Hope you enjoyed this peek into my journal and wishing you all a wonderful and artsy day.
