Some are pretty, some are pretty minimal, none of these new paperback notebooks and sketchbook sets will break the bank. Explore the single and the double Pamphlet Stitch and the Accordion Fold...
Paperback Notebooks: £10 set of 2 in Pink, Blue or Orange.
I've paired floral and graphic prints with batik Nepalese Lokta paper to bind these sweet and slim notebooks.
Accordion Fold Sketchbook: £15 set of 3 in Sand; £10 set of 2 in Earth
Originally designed for an exhibition this summer, these sketchbooks are an inventive way to make and display your work. They're a very simple, clean design bound in the simple pamphlet stitch, but the pages are the accordion fold format - use it just like a regular book or open to its fullest extent for an unusual, expansive way to write, draw, collage, story-tell or make graphic novels.
Notebook Set: Double Pamphlet: £20 set of 3 in Earth or Cereal.
A single sheet of strong cover paper with a 'w' fold in the centre allows 2 signatures to be bound into one notebook in this Double Pamphlet style.
I'll be making more paperbacks in the new year and look forward to sharing more simple yet slightly unusual binding styles with you. I plan to start delivering adult workshops in book arts and bookbinding later in 2014, so if you'd like to learn how to make books like this, that you can then use to make your own art with, do sign up to my newsletter.
