Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Madame Curie, Frida Kahlo. What do these great names have in common? They all kept journals. And for many, there's still no greater satisfaction than spending the time to reflect and put pen to paper. People use journals for all sorts of reasons—to write their inner thoughts, organize their lives, or draw the world around them. There are endless choices: lined or dotted paper, blank notebooks, hardcover or softcover—even the weight of the paper.

Though you may be keeping your most intimate secrets inside, there's no reason why you can't have a cool, cute journal whose exterior reflects your personal taste and style. And the nice thing is, many of the most interesting journals allow you to customize the product to some degree. Often, it's possible to select between lined or blank paper, as well as the type of binding. Some cool journals even let you completely customize the text that appears on the cover.

So whether you're looking to create your next art journal or simply want something beautiful that will encourage you to write every day, here's our selection of 19 cute journals that will keep you inspired.
