Perfect timing…my old Moleskine is almost out of empty pages!
Hey that’s a beautiful notebook, and pretty handy too!
I love to keep a journal and am always looking for one that better suites my needs.
Great Notebook, I’m actually doing a trip to visit Europe, I really need on of those. 🙂
Just think, a notebook that opens flat! Lovely!
AWESOME! Love that it lays flat!!!!!!
I’ve had my eye on this notebook for weeks! It would be the perfect companion for my travels through South America! Fingers crossed!
Love the photo you picked for this post.
I’m sitting here sipping a steaming cup of black coffee, looking at that photo and thinking of the adventures I could chronicle in those pages: The Adventures of Bud, the trailblazing alpinist and his trusty Scottish Terrier.
Last year, I took this dot-ruled journal to New Zealand, Australia, Philippines, and Thailand: http://bit.ly/1sRd9MW Notice how it doesn’t lay flat. 🙁
Today, there are only 12 untouched pages remaining and oh-so-many more places to go!
This looks like a beautiful journal and might just help me stick with my daily writing goals!
Oiy, it is beautiful!
Looks like a great notebook! Enjoyed seeing you in Austin!
I’d love a journal that opens flat!
I love blank notebook. Perfect for concentration on writing.
Time to begin journaling once again and rediscover the traveler within me. 🙂
Opening completely flat looks awesome, I’ll have to check these out.
This looks awesome! Flat open – nice feature.
Good timing–my Moleskine is just about full…
My husband says I am obsessed with finding the perfect journel, so I would love to try this one out! Thanks for coming out to Pasadena Chris and signing my book! It was so awesome to meet you!
That looks awesome…I would love a dot grid one!
On for the wanderlust.
Beautiful journal! I would love to use this one!!
I would love a notebook.
i LOVE travel journaling and would LOVE a chance to try the Confidant Journal out…I leave for my next adventure November 6th!
Finally a book that lays flat. My husband will be ecstatic if I actually win this as I am always buying a new journal looking for the prefect one to capture all my adventures.
I saw this post and immediately bought a blank notebook to try out. Couldn’t wait for the giveaway! However, I’d love a ruled one once they come back in stock as well… 😉
I love keeping a journal on my travels – allows me to relive every single bit of my trips at a later date – when the minutiae is easily forgotten.
I write in a journal everyday. I’m always on the lookout for the “perfect” journal. Laying flat is a definite plus.
this would be wonderful!
I’ve been wanting an unlined notebook. 🙂
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good notebook!!
The perfect tool to take notes while off the grid!
Awesome..great way to jot down your memories while traveling!
What a flatastic journal!
This would make a great gift for my son. He loves journals. Great giveaway.
Wow – the laying flat bit seems so practical that it is nearly revolutionary!
This couldn’t have come along at a better time – my daughter is starting to create books of her own, drawing pictures and writing stories to make sense of her world. This would be a fantastic way for her to capture them and start her love of journaling her experiences.
This journal would be perfect as a sketchbook on my travels! I love that it’s designed to open flat. Pick me! 🙂
Was about to order one of those!
Nice journal – I like that is lies flat.
My dog, Butter, says cats are very bias. You should have dogs decide the winner. Haha!.
I love good notebooks!
These journals are beautiful, and I love how they lay flat!
All my journals open flat — but not by choice. My cats squish them for me, flopping atop my work. Having a meant-to-open-flat journal would be a shock for the kitties, but fun for me!
I keep fighting my red & black “China” notebook as it doesn’t lie flat, so this would be great, as long as it’s lined. Because, lined notebooks must be.
Loooove new notebooks! Hope to get my hands on one of these!
Perfect! I love writing and drawing plans, so this would be a great gift for me.
Looks good to me and I can never have enough notebooks!
Pick me! Pick me!
17,658 trees planted to date in 30+ countries…!!! woww
Perfect! I’m almost out of pages!
I had never heard of this brand before but it looks like a great notebook.
Nice looking notebook.
As a leftie, I love that this journal opens totally flat!

Beautiful notebook; love that it lays flat.
I love dot grid notebooks!
Very nice! (Are the Cat judges open to catnip bribes, er, supporting contributions?)
I love that the journal opens flat! Brilliant!
Ps-I just finished reading The Happiness of Pursuit. Loved it!
I enjoy journals and rich mahogeny.
I would love a new travel journal! 😀
Love the looks of this journal (and it’s name)!! Thanks very much for giving one away!
Love me a good journal!
Awesome notebooks! I LOVE that they open flat, such a good design idea.
I would love to win this and bring it along with me on different adventures! And I love that it opens flat. 🙂 *crosses fingers and toes*
Hello! It’s great this opportunity to get it! Best luck for me!
Love it! Perfect timing!
perfect journal! Mine was ruined this week when my water bottle spilt in my purse … Oops 🙂 Time for a new one!!
I like the idea of a notebook that opens flat!
Looks like a marvellous soil for some idea seeds… 🙂
I was already looking up possibilities to plant a tree here in Scotland, so we could actually make it two trees planted for this book!
Perfect timing! I’m looking for a new sketch/poetry/ideas book.
Never mind! I bought myself one! Too nice to pass up.
Fantastic journal — would love to win 🙂
I would love to win this beautiful notebook! I could use a new journal and I love that it opens flat!
a tree for every notebook? Cool business idea!
Beautiful notebook! I love when people create every day items that are done perfectly.
This would make a perfect gift for a friend of mine.
Cats: Yesterday I was wasting time on Pintrest and saw a dog holding a sign that read “I EAT MY OWN POOP.” I was going to post it here so I went back to Pinterest and, in the SEARCH field, I entered the words “I EAT MY OWN POOP.” It pulled up about thirty pictures of dogs, one bird and one rodent all of whom want the world to know that THEY EAT THEIR OWN POOP. There is not one cat featured. Go to Pintrest and try it then vote for me to get the journal.
You never have enough notebooks !
As an avid journal writer and journal ‘snob’, I would probably slay a dragon to obtain this journal. Just sayin’.
C’mon cats, you love me!
Plant a tree for every book sold, now that’s a business model I can get behind! I leave for Beijing in less than three weeks, so this Baron Fig travel journal would be a welcome companion. Ninja Prize Selection Cats, activate!
I do not travel a lot but I was planning to start keeping a journal. It would be amazing to start with a great journal like the Confidant.
It’s Adam, co-founder of Baron Fig here. We appreciate all the nice words and hope the books find a nice home!
Ohhh – I can think of so many creative things to fill that book with!! 🙂
The perfect place to create chaos from order.
This would be a great addition to my journal collection, let alone wonderful accessory on my next travel journey!
Beauty! I’d be honored to write in such a classy notebook!
I love it! Thank you 🙂
To imagine a journal that opens flat, oh so lovely.
It would be a wonderful treat to write in such a great notebook.
Ah, the welcoming beckon of a clean white page. Thanks!
a new journal is needed for my upcoming travels!
I would LOVE to win the Baron Fig Travel Journal to document my questing journey 🙂
I started writing in a journal back in January and I rather enjoy. This would be a cool thing to keep the habit going!
Cool looking journal.
“I’d love to use that thing you made!”
Send me the journal and I’ll give it the love it deserves- not only will it live wild adventures, but will also hold some awesome secrets.
Greetings from Costa Rica.
Looks awesome! With the lay flat feature, think my artist daughter would love it.
a comment a day keeps the craziness at bay
I like that cats are in on the selection process. My cats would love to lie on that notebook. Since it lies flat, it would be very comfortable. They might even let me write in it occasionally.
AWESOME!!! I would love to win!! Invaluable! 😀
perfect timing, a beautiful notebook like this is alway welcome in my life
Very nice notebook
Give me a notebook. I wanna write
Love a good travel journal!
love this journal!
I write every day and have been loving my Moleskine. Definitely open to trying out a new notebook, especially if it opens completely flat!
to journal or not to journal? Well, there’s no question with a lovely notebook like this to write in.
A journal is a wonderful way to express yourself. I would love to have this one.
I know everyone wants this, including me. Good luck to everyone, including myself. 🙂
I’ll use this to record my journey of the upcoming quest.
Comment to win.
Want this! Give it to me!
Why can’t ghosts have babies??
Because they have holloweenies.
Tell the cats I’ll bring tuna… 🙂
Its great that the company plants a tree for every notebook sold 🙂
Give it to me now! Because, I said so and because it will give me something spectacular to write about in my new blog. Yes! I finally did it, Chris. Check it!
A journal that opens flat? Sign me up!
so many entries.
here goes!!! good luck everyone
Excellent timing, I need a new notebook to continue drawing comics in. Been married a year and the comic material is only getting better…
solitary travels with a sketchbook or journal are adventures that you will look back on with fondness and nostalgia when you are 90 sitting in your rocking chair. No regrets!
I love the plant a tree thing. Keep the great stories coming!
Would love one… Thanks for the give away!
The BF and I are journal junkies, and have been on a quest for one that truly lays flat. Here’s to end of that quest.
Looks very interesting. Thanks for this opportunity
Sweet! I’m looking for a new notebook for my journal! 🙂
A notebook that’s a joy to use is the best thing to have when you want to write more… and this one seems like it qualifies easily as being a joy to use. It would certainly help me maintain the daily writing habit I’ve recently established!
Winston (the cat) will love this, he can sit on the whole journal rather than just the side I am writing on.
Time for a new notebook and this one looks great
Notebooks are my personal obsession. These sound amazing – I wish I had made them!
These sound wonderful!
I figure, if you can’t get your notebook to lay flat, you need to pushh harder. But I’d love to try this anyway.
Fingers crossed. Awesome notebook.
I love the blend of trad and tech – Inspired!
Lies flat? Cool. This would me nice birthday present (Oct. 4). Although I’d be happy for one of these other commenters to win it, especially Sharon’s cats. I don’t know if I’d use it for next year’s travels or ideas for this year’s National Novel Writing Month. I recognize the pen, too – need to find myself a new one.
Ack! I meant: This would make me a nice birthday present. I really do speak English, but I’m on my first cup of coffee.
Thanks for the opportunity, Chris!
This is perfect for us left handed travelers! Thanks for inspiring!
This is super wonderful! Thanks for sharing!!
notebooks that lay flat are the best. spiral bound need not apply.
I need a new journal and would get tons of use out of it!!
I do love a quality journal.
