R&R Journals is a collaboration between two Virginia artists who met while in school in Harrisonburg, VA. Nava Levenson and Rebecca Hurt are from the cities of Richmond and Roanoke.


Sidewalk treasures, hoarded materials, and neglected book pages are all utilized by Rebecca and incorporated into unique collaged covers which are then sent to Richmond to be bound. Nava reacts to each collaged cover with a custom stitch, often a variation on the buttonhole, long link, or coptic binding. In the making of these journals, they become archivists and storytellers while growing a relationship as friends and collaborators. These blank journals are ideal for writers, list-makers, doodlers, and creatives of all kinds. Each journal is its own unique blend of floral, steampunk, humorous, and antiquated aesthetics.


While not journaling, Rebecca is an art educator and painter. She works within the realm of large, colorful non-objective paintings done in oil. Nava is a multidisciplinary artist making interactive work about consumer culture in contemporary America. Nava has spent time at many different artist residences, most recently The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA.

custom journals.

Each one of our journals are one of a kind. Think of them as small original artworks on the cover of a blank journal.
