The Austen Collection (formerly known as Mr. Darcy) is made from smooth, full-grain leather and with a beautiful luster. The name is inspired by Jane Austen and the colors after people and places from her great works.
This leather shows its history with pride as it collects unique markings through daily use. While we take the utmost care in the construction of each notebook, the leather finish is so delicate that light surface markings may be present in the finished product. Firm at first, Austen notebooks will soften and patina over time.
“This leather is like I imagined Mr. Darcy in the novel. At first, he seems perfect and smooth. But when you get to know him, he’s sensitive, so the things Elizabeth said left a mark on him. That’s what makes you fall in love with him.” - J.H.
