An additional 'bridge' colour may also be used, at my discretion.

Simply packaged in a plain cellophane packet your handy pocket-sized notebook will be stampified into something utterly unique. No-one else will ever own a notebook quite like yours!

The front cover is entirely covered with used postage stamps, then coated with a matt sealant for extra durability. The back cover will be numbered & signed.

Customised notebook with firm-but-flexible kraft cardstock cover, secure stapled binding, and grey fabric tape covering the outer spine.
An any-year calendar and index page are printed inside the back cover.
A5 size, approx. 14.8 x 21 cm - ideal for slipping into a bag/purse for notes-on-the-go, or a great gift for the philatelist, traveller, or boho stylista!.


I've become fascinated by the subtle colours and intricate patterns of vintage postage stamps from around the world, and have found that I truly love the process of blending these tiny pieces of everyday history into new imaginary landscapes.

The postage stamps are individually collaged into place with an acid-free, xylene-free adhesive then coated with a matt sealant for extra protection. They still bear fragments of postmarks and other cancellation marks as a testament to their former active service with postal services around the world.
