BestLeather.org recently added the Marlondo Leather Large Journal Cover in Dark Brown to their Ongoing Journal Cover Roundup. Here's what reviewer Bobby Hale had to say:
This roundup isn’t exclusive to 3×5” Field Notes style covers. Marlondo offers that size as well, but the large Journal Cover we have here accommodates (and comes with) 5×8″ notebooks. Most aspects of this journal are nicely oversized. It’s not a tight fit for the included notebook, most pens, cards, etc., and takes up a fair amount of desk space opened up. Sleeves on both sides mean you can secure your notebook in a few different ways, either cover or both.
The leather is a rich brown color that is happy to show some character as it gets scuffed, and the simple leather wrap enhances the rugged feel. It also appears to be chrome-tanned, which means softer leather but not my personal favorite smell (others tell me they prefer it, however!). Full grain leather and nylon thread mean this cover should last for many years and look great doing it.
Thanks to Bobby and the team at Best Leather for the feature!
