This journal has a black leather cover and a leather closure tab with chrome snap hardware. An elastic loop to hold a pen is included under the tab. The cover of the journal has an embossed Apple logo in the lower-right corner.

A spiral-bound notebook is included inside the journal. The notebook is printed with lines, and the final two pages include an IMPORTANT CONTACTS page and a calendar page with 2006 and 2007 calendars. The pages are printed in the Gill Sans font, the same font used by Apple for the Newton product line produced from 1992–1998.

In addition to the chrome snap on the cover, chrome rivets are used on the back of the journal to hold it together.

The journal measures 7 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches. It is 5/8 inch thick.
