This is a beautiful hand made and bound A5 notebook featuring very colourful dark brown and sandstone repeat block print pattern with chestnut brown buckram band covering the spine. There are 144 lined pages of white cartridge paper which is lignin and acid free, so is perfect for writing your notes and memories.
The repeat pattern in is by John Smith dates from the 1970s and was published originally by the Fine Press Book Association.
The book has a contrasting sand coloured paper on the inside of the front and back covers.
At the top and bottom of the spine (or the ‘head’ and ‘tail’ as we bookbinders call them) is a hand sewn contrasting endband in brown and sand thread.
Along the edges of the pages is a hand-sprinkled dot design in contrasting brown and sand.
The book is completely hand sewn before it is covered using 100% linen thread which is first coated, again by hand, in beeswax. The cover is then made separately and then the pages and the cover are brought together to form the book.
Because of the very nature of the design of the book, it is a unique item, no two will ever be the same, and therefore would make a fantastic gift for a loved one.
