Translating from the Latin to mean 'Spoken words fly away, written words remain', the inscription on this journal expresses an ethos we at Scriptum stand by. We believe wholeheartedly that the written word is the best store of one's thoughts and feelings, and our Verba Volent Scripta Manent Pocket Journal aims to provide an endlessly accessible outlet for this.
Small enough to remain in a pocket, but with enough space to contain thoughts and ideas with ease, the journal is able to remain on your person constantly, awaiting your next flash of inspiration. There is nothing worse than letting an idea slip into the aether, and with the Verba Volent Scripta Manenet Pocket Journal, this anguish can be a thing of the past.
The leather cover - designed by us at Scriptum and handcrafted in our Piacenza bindery - features the phrase 'Verba Volent Scripta Manent' embossed in bronze foil, contained within a minimal border. The journal's leather has been carefully chosen to closely resemble the colour of Headington Stone, the specific type of limestone from Headington Quarry that many of Oxford's earliest buildings were constructed from.
The journal contains 72 acid-free, plain pages, and is in a horizontal format.
Made in Piacenza, Italy.
