We Like Rescuing Books…Each Attic Journal is a unique piece of the past that can hold important bits of your present. Using hard-bound vintage school books & library books that were destined for dumpsters, but given new life in our production studio, each journal is made to last with approximately 75 pages of blank 24# paper & a sturdy wire binding.
Attic Journals began on a sleepy Saturday morning in 2004 when we happened upon a beautiful tattered book at a garage sale. With an immediate need for having an original gift at a friend’s birthday celebration that evening, we headed home to re-purpose the book and Attic Journals were born. In the years since that first Saturday, Attic Journals has evolved into a burgeoning business that works hard to be as sustainable as possible from our home in Portland, Oregon. By working with schools and libraries around the country to harvest their discarded books and upcycle them, the benefit of Attic Journals is three-fold: funding community education, keeping significant tonnage out of landfills, and helping people around the world tell their story.
