Compared to the one I bought about 2 years ago, it's a bit too big for the notebook. The previous one fits like a glove on my notebook. It's actually darker than what it appears online. Emailed to see if i could get a replacement, i don't mind the color, but i don't like that's a bit too big.
Thank you for being in touch with customer service and for sending your photos. I'm glad we were able to reassure you. The leather is cut from patterns using precision tools so that the pieces are exactly the same from one to the other. Actually, what you are seeing has to do with what is called the “temper”, or stiffness of the leather. I can assure you that it will definitely settle down as your cover breaks in and the filler finds it’s sweet spot. In fact, the more it is used the faster this should happen.
Over the years I have bought several pieces of Oberon. They are truly works of art and my Composition notebook cover is beautiful. Great company! And made in America.
This is my second comp. book cover and I love it! It reminds me of the oak tree we played under and climbed in my childhood. Even the rolling hills behind it are reminiscent of what really was behind the tree in my parent's yard.
There is something about the Tree of Life composition notebook cover that makes one wax lyrical. As the French poet Lamartine put it: " Objets inanimés, avez-vous donc une âme qui s'attache à notre âme et la force d'aimer?" May Oberon and his diligent elves continue to thrive and perform their magic of endowing inanimate objects with a soul of their own. May Oberon, for many years to come, keep on enchanting us with such things of beauty as this, whose loveliness increases with time, whose soul blends into ours.
