Journals and Notebooks
Even though our current Journal paper is no longer made, we have been able to find a mill that makes a paper similar enough (and nice enough) for us to use as a replacement.
It retains the color and texture of our usual paper, although it no longer offers a "deckled edge" that gives the traditional hand-made look. The edges are all straight cut and though they don't affect the usability of the book, they offer a slightly different look.
If you have questions, please contact us prior to ordering!
Our Journals and Notebooks come in four sizes.
From right to left: Small (Forest Green Banana Bark,)
Medium (Chrysanthemum,) Large (Black and Gold Ginkgo Leaf,)
Sketchbook (Turquoise Terrazzo.)
We have been making fine, hand-bound books since 1973.
Like all of our books, we make them by hand in our studio. We bind the books in a traditional binding style and we sew our book blocks by hand, with needle and Irish linen thread and the book will stay flat when open.
We offer many different cover styles using beautiful printed and textured papers from around the world, and we can customize a cover style to your liking. Just ask us.
The inside pages use an 80# (118 gsm) writing paper in natural white with deckled edges, that has the look and feel of hand-made paper. The paper has a textured surface and works well with pens, pencils and felt pens. Some of our customers even use it for watercolors.
