50% Sale on leather journals and sketchbooks at Bound by Hand

Happy New Year, friends of Bound by Hand! I'm pleased to offer a selection of fine leather journals and sketchbooks, plus a couple of paperback options, in my annual sale.

Journals and sketchbooks for the special, everyday.

I truly believe in making everyday life special by using beautiful products that bring us pleasure through their appearance, their touch and their ease of use. So I hope this year's sale helps you treat yourself to that journal or sketchbook that you might have had your eye on for a while. 

Perhaps you made a new year's resolution to start journalling, you're pursuing some CPD that you need a notebook for, or you're taking some art classes this year and want a sketchbook to try out colour palettes?

I'm not making any resolutions this year, but I am re-affirming my commitments to my creativity including piano practice in my 'personal' life and exploring new techniques for leather and botanically dying cotton rag paper in my 'professional' life as a bookbinder.

Leather books for special occasions.

If you're celebrating a special event in 2020, such as a 'big' birthday, a wedding, an anniversary, a retirement, or sadly find yourself having to plan a memorial service, a fine leather book is a fitting tribute.

My Bespoke Service allows you to customise a book to your requirements (size, colour, paper) and you can have a personalised dedication printed on the title page of your Guest Book, Memory Book, Journal or Sketchbook.

View your options and find inspiration from my previous bespoke clients here or do get in touch with me if you'd like to discuss your plans.

With best wishes for 2020, I hope it brings you everything that you need.
