After sampling, testing and frankly - stroking - many different types of paper from some of the world's best paper mills, I've selected Mohawk as the new standard for BOUND, because no other paper has the same reputation for quality, consistency and uniformity.
The most popular size is now available in Portrait format across the whole range of leather books. Although the same size as Landscape, a Portrait format book feels larger, thanks to the greater page height and yet more manageable, because once open to a double page spread it takes up less space on a table, lap or work bench.
I've just launched a fresh new collection of bright and bold Mini Journals for Spring 2015. Hand bound in the most gorgeously tactile fair-trade goatskin, they're a great little luxe gift for Mother's and Father's Day, birthdays large and small, add to place settings on Easter Sunday, secret away for treasure hunts and use as wedding favours on your big day. Choose from 8 different colour ways. They're just £10 each and ship worldwide.
They're just £10 each and I ship worldwide. Happy (almost) Spring!
