NEW: Vintage and Contemporary Hand Marbled Paper Notebooks, Jotters and Journals

Posted on December 02, 2016 by Susan Green | 0 comments

A New Collection from the Bookbinding Studio: Marbled Notebooks hand bound with Vintage and Contemporary Hand Marbled Papers and Mohawk Superfine  Smooth paper

I'm excited to announce the launch of brand new Marbled Notebooks using the most gorgeous Vintage and Contemporary hand marbled paper by some of the best British professional marblers.


Above you can see the Contemporary range using Green Spot, Blue Floral and Red Italian Vein patterns. The latter has genuine gold veining, it's exquisite! I've sewn the notebooks in a simple Pamphlet Stitch with linen thread in complimentary colours, and the covers have rounded turn-ins for longevity.

In budget-friendly prices starting at £7.50, using only paper and linen thread (so they're vegetarian-friendly), I hope these notebooks will be as accessible as they are exquisite.

What are they like?

I sent a couple of advance books out to some beloved old-time customers for their feedback. Unbeknownst to me, one of them is a devotee of marbled paper and her feedback was:

"The marbling is beautiful. The paper is superb, so smooth and white and I love the linen stitching. As usual, your precise craftsmanship shines out. It’s a real treasure. Definitely one for the stationery addict."

The 'superb' paper referred to there is Mohawk Superfine Smooth - the quality is unbelievable and it's a delight to write on whether you prefer fountain pen, biro or pencil. I've just switched my entire studio production over to Mohawk papers - read more about that here.

Ideas For Using The Notebooks: 

A4 Large £24.99 - ideal as a day book to keep on your desk. Plenty of room for business planning and daily to-do lists.

A5 Medium £15 - a great journal to dedicate to a single subject - perhaps jot down notes from your online courses, creative workshops or meetings.

A6 Small £10 - jotter size, this one will slip into your laptop sleeve, handbag or work bag.

A7 Pocket £7.50 - a traditional 'cahier', this little book is perfect for Christmas stockings! Suggested uses from one of my clients include: 'haikus, small sketches and miniature collages'. I'd love to see her book, wouldn't you?

Hand Marbled Papers

All the papers are marbled by hand. The Contemporary range uses paper designed and produced by Jemma Lewis, and the Vintage range use papers from a selection I inherited from a retiring bookbinder and are available only in extremely limited quantities so if you like one, please make it yours before someone else gets it! 

I hope you love them as much as I do.
