These are perfect! Thank you Carlos

Carlos's work here is fabulous. I really enjoy the size and texture of this journal. I will be using this for journal writing and sketching. I also love the note he included with the book. When I realized I made a mistake with the address I listed for delivery, he responded very quickly and the journal was delivered to my home in no time. I'm proud to live in Chicago, a city of such talented artists!
