Here are gorgeous new Marbled Notebooks with labels - presented in gift sets of 2 books - just in time to solve a few Christmas gift dilemmas. If one (or more!) of the gift sets takes your fancy, I recommend you purchase now to avoid disappointment; I have made just one of each set and have now used all my vintage papers. Click here to order or scroll down to learn more about these new Marbled Notebooks.
With just one exception, these exquisite papers were hand marbled more than 20 years ago; I inherited them - via a mutual friend - from a retiring London bookbinder. Each paper features a traditional marbling pattern and was hand dyed, one sheet at a time.
Paper marbling is one of the world's heritage crafts and has a long association with bookbinding. I've thoroughly enjoyed using my traditional skills to bring something new, beautiful and useful to life with these vintage marbled papers.
In a style update, these Marbled Notebooks now have labels on the front cover. I hope this will help keep your notes, plans and lists organised, especially if you need to refer back to your notebooks in the future. The labels are ivory coloured with a variety of patterned borders in Petrol, Navy, Grey, Mustard and Red.
The Medium sets have one A5 Marbled Notebook and one A6, and the Small sets have an A6 and an A7 notebook. I use the A5 size (with 56 pages) for taking to meetings and workshops; anywhere I might want to make comprehensive notes. The A6 book has 44 pages and is the perfect size to carry in a bag along with your diary and phone. The A7 jotter is great for slipping into your pocket.
The pages are unlined Mohawk Superfine Smooth paper, which is a dream to write on in fountain pen, ballpoint, biro or pencil. They're bound in a single signature and hand stitched through the covers in linen thread. As these are paperback notebooks, I made them with cover turn-ins to reinforce the opening edge.
I ship worldwide but if you'd like to see and purchase similar Marbled Notebooks (see image below) in person and you're local to Dorset, visit Walford Mill Crafts in Wimborne. This fantastic contemporary craft venue is stocking my Marbled Gift Sets and Miniature Leather Journals during their Christmas selling exhibition from 2 November to 29 December.
I hope you love these new notebooks as much as I do! If you have any questions, please get in touch.
