Harry Potter journals

My sister recently sent me a link to these beautiful, Harry Potter-inspired journals by Etsy seller CelesteFrittata. Now anyone can write in their own Hogwarts textbooks! The texture and delicacy of these is so striking, their tone really fits with the feelings I got from reading the books as a kid. Seeing such a complete and successful body of work makes it look easy, but the majority of the Potter bandwagon items show us how kitschy this could have been. Instead we have these lovely hand-bound books made of handmade and recycled paper, printed using a Japanese Print Gocco machine.
