Introduction

Brown Book Journals fill a niche between pricey hand-made journals with leather covers and fancy stitching and shiny name-brand journals that combine assembly line consistency with the lack of personality that it imparts.

Brown Books are made the old fashioned way, the way books have been made since the middle ages. Acid-free writing paper is hand stitched with waxed linen thread to high-quality backing cloth. The result is glued by the bookbinder into thick durable hard boards, and covered in a tough starched linen bookcloth. Books built this way have lasted centuries! The result is a no-frills journal with the singularity and warm cachet of an artisan crafted piece and the durability of high quality materials and construction, all priced bellow the name brand journals sold at your local big-box bookstore.

While you may be tempted by the familiar presence of the brand name journals, I'm sure that once you consider the quality and craft of Brown Books, you will be convinced.

Sincerely,

Christopher Teague

I found the Brown Book Journals Web site a few weeks ago, but just now I tried to return to it and found that it is gone. Christopher, are you no longer making and selling these books?

very good of you to drop us a message....man, that is completely understandable, this has to be good for your pocket book as well.

I hope to get back to journal-making soon, but I'm in transition from full-time job searching to a rather settled life as a substitute teacher. My early "business" was not began in a way that really benifitted me financially, (I was making about $0.35/hr working on the books) so I'll be figuring out a way that I can produce and sell the books at a price where I can 1. actually make them (good for you) 2. at a price people are willing to pay (also good for you) and 3. actually make a profit (good for me).

Stay tuned, the journal idea isn't dead!

Craig, thanks for the update, I've been wondering what happened. Well that stinks, sounds like he was getting some good feedback.

Jose - Unfortunately it looks like this thread died. I haven't heard anything about them since July. Pretty sad.

Should I go for the CPA?

I have long been thinking about adding a CPA to my name.I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history and an economics minor when I was an undegrad.
