The most popular sized book - A4 Large - is now available in Portrait format across the range of leather Memory Books, Guest Books, Journals and Artist's Sketchbooks. A5 Portrait has always been a standard option for Journals and Sketchbooks, and it's now also available for Memory Books and Guest Books.
Although technically the same size as an Landscape format, a Portrait book feels larger, thanks to the greater page height. And yet it also feels more manageable, because once open to a double page spread it takes up less space on a table, lap or work bench (think two sheets of regular UK-sized printer paper side by side).
Memory Book: A4 Portrait in Black Calfskin with Autumn Yellow binding detail and strap.
Whilst Landscape is still the format of choice for Wedding Guest Books and Condolence Books, because it lends itself to handwritten messages and drapes elegantly open on a table, Portrait format is ideal for Memory Books and Journals, where it's more likely that one person will be using them. More manageable, more portable, more intimate, yet feeling like a lot more space.
Memory Books: Blue & Tan in A4 and A5 Portrait with leather thong.
Here are all the colours available at A4 size, either Portrait or Landscape:
Bottom: White, Pewter Grey, Blackberry, Azure Blue.
And here's what recent customer Laura thought about her Bespoke book:
"This memory book is unbelievably beautiful! The quality and craftwork is exceptional and we are so delighted that this will hold what will be special memories of our wedding day. Also the service I have received from Susan has been both friendly and professional. I cannot recommend these books enough!"
You can find A4 Portrait as a standard option in the range of Memory Books and of course you can commission your own Bespoke book in colours of your choice - I'd be delighted to bind one for yourself, to give as a special gift or to use at a commemorative occasion. Prices start at £99 GBP.
