Upcycled Machin Postage Stamp Collage
One of a kind, for first class notes!

MADE TO ORDER - please allow 7 days from date of order for your customised notebook to be stampified! It will be similar but not identical to the pictured notebook (due to postmarks & colour availability etc).

This plain A5 notebook will be stampified into something utterly unique - no-one else will ever own a notebook quite like this one!

The front cover is entirely covered with used postage stamps (except for a narrow border around the edge). The back cover is left blank, except for a hand-stamped TangleMail Prioritaire postmark. The postmark will be date-stamped with the date of collage.

Simply packaged in a plain cellophane packet, this is a customised, high quality Muji notebook with firm-but-flexible kraft cardstock cover, secure stitched binding, and grey binding tape covering the outer spine. Inside are 48 ruled pages. The notebook is A5 size (approx. 14.8 x 21 cm - a tiny bit larger than a Moleskine medium cahier) - ideal for throwing into a bag for notes-on-the-go.

Treat yourself, or make a gift extra special by adding a stainless steel fountain pen,or a kraft gift box tied with satin ribbon. Gift message option is also available.


There's something truly fascinating about the way a simple, infinitely repeated design (such as the Machin postage stamp) can also provide infinite variety in the tiny differences acquired during exposure to the world's postal systems. I was fascinated by the patchwork effect of the stamps when laid out side by side and the First Class Notebook was born...

The postage stamps have all been individually soaked from their original envelopes, dried, then glued into place with an acid-free, xylene-free adhesive. They still bear fragments of postmarks and other cancellation marks as a testament to their former active service with the Royal Mail.
