Review: Keep Calm and Carry On Journal


Our crowd-pleasing ''Keep Calm and Carry On'' Journal is based on a motivational WWII poster commissioned by the British government's Ministry of Information in 1939. This hardcover journal features a rich red background with white slogan and crown design embossed and accented with glossy highlights. An elastic band place holder and inside back cover pocket add practicality. 160 lightly lined pages. Creamy smooth acid-free archival paper takes pen or pencil beautifully. Journal lies flat for ease of use, and is small enough to take with you. 5'' wide x 7'' high.

I have been writing my Keep Calm and Carry On Journal for the past couple of days and I can't believe how much of the paper I have used!  I guess I had a lot more to say than I have in the past.  At this rate, I will need another journal from Peter Pauper Press within about a week.  I love their journals because they are big enough to write a lot in but they are small enough to carry around with you wherever you go.  There have been times that I have been waiting in the car for my husband and when I get the urge to write, all I have to do is reach for my purse.

I love journals. I visited Peter Pauper Press and would also love one of their Footprints Oversized Journals.

+10 Read your review. Sounds like my kind of journal...big enough to write in but small enough to keep in my purse.

It did look small. Glad you commented that you were able to write a lot in it. Yes, I do love portability.

Nice to hear about the good quality and sizing of the journal. It stinks when they wind up too large to tote around and actually use.
