To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The journal is good quality, gorgeous cover and has a useful clasp on the side. Its big downside is the false advertised dimensions. In the products description, the measurements are: 19.7 x 15.2 x 2.5 when in reality, they are: 17.5 x 12.5 x 2.5 This is a huge difference and I was expecting something way bigger! The price is way too exorbitant for its size. I am surprised something like this is allowed...
I was disappointed when discovering the journal cover was a dull matt blue/gold instead of an attractive metallic blue/gold as illustrated. Otherwise the midi journal has more high quality Smythe-sewn vellum than most midis this size which, I suppose, is a consolation.
But I am unimpressed. Because surely, one chooses an attractive looking journal, so why receive something that has way less sparkle? This is why this journal deserves 3 stars instead of 5 stars.
