This lovely handmade, unlined, hardback notebook is one of a kind! It is folded and sewn with linen thread and quarter bound by hand using high quality bookbinding goatskin leather and my own marbled paper. It would make a really special gift for someone!
240 pages of 120 gsm cream paper
Dimensions: L8.8 x W8.8 x D2.5 cm
This book took many hours to make. These were some of the steps in its creation:
– a bath of Carrageenan moss solution is prepared overnight
– paints are added to the bath and combed with hand-made combs to create unique marbled patterns
– paper is laid on the marbled pattern and then removed, dried and pressed
– the paper for the book block is folded in half and then arranged in sections
– the sections are pierced and sewn with linen thread
– the end papers are made and attached
– the spine is lined
– the cover is cut out from bookbinding greyboard
– the boards are covered in the hand-pared leather and my marbled paper and the book is cased in
– the book is left overnight in the press and voilà, the book is ready!
Thanks for looking at my notebooks and don’t forget that I can make books to your own specifications and personalise the covers – just get in touch for a quote. (Please note that I can’t personalise books that have already been made – it is an integral part of making the book from scratch.)
