The Legend Album is fashioned after vintage artist’s journal, elegantly wrapped in genuine leather with a leather strap closure. Focusing on the natural characteristics of raw leather, this hand-crafted rustic album stands the test of time and tells a story like none other. With a wonderful lay-flat design and thick pages, it beautifully displays those magical moments, perfect for dreamy boho weddings and romantic elopements in the woods.

Reviews

The smell of these soft textured leather albums is the first thing my brides notice when they open up their album box. There’s always a look of joy on their faces the moment they begin to unravel that leather strap which keeps the albums closed.

My all time favorite albums are the Legend albums. My clients could tell you the exact same thing because it’s usually the first album I like to show them. They fit in perfectly with the raw, organic feel I like to portray with my art. It is also the exact reason I was drawn to working with Woodland Albums.

I love the Legend album for the authentic leather that is just so smooth and rich and makes me think of nothing but “quality-made”. It seems so timeless too. I love getting to unwrap the album each time I look at it. It’s like opening a present.

I absolutely love the Legend Album. I look at it and think “Wow”, which is what I want my clients to think when they receive their albums. The wrap around strap just gets me, it is what caught my attention in the first place. I love that there is an 8×8 option, but I always love the 12x12 album – more room to better showcase memories.

The leather is of superior quality and it makes me happy to know that it will age beautifully and give my clients a keepsake worthy of their memories.
