A quirky notebook with the caption 'Tit for Tat' which gives the scenario between a cat and a parrot. This is a humorous abstract that I discovered whilst rummaging through some vintage books at a local antiques market. I have duplicated and enlarged this image as the original was too small for the large notebook format I wanted to use. This notebook is perfect for sketching and drawing into and features a pocket at the back to collect and keep any postcards or images for inspiration. The covering material is original wallpaper sourced from between the 1950's and 1960's.
The book is hand sewn in a Coptic binding style, where the sewn construction of the pages is visible on the outside of the spine area. The hand sewn sections can also be seen when the book is open at each centre page. Coptic stitch is a decorative style of sewing multiple sections together and it Is designed to allow the book to lie completely flat, perfect for writing, sketching or painting into.
36 pages of 220gsm textured paper. Perfect for drawing, sketching and light painting.
Size: 23cm H x 17.9cm W

The images I have collected and used upon these notebooks have been taken from vintage magazines, newspapers and books. The adverts are timeless in their humour and have a quirky quality to them which I just love. To me they are too good to be trapped inside and hidden, I enjoy bringing peoples attention to them by framing them on the front of the book.
My vintage notebooks and sketchbooks are fully customisable and can be made to order with specifically sourced antique images, such as a memorable birth place, anniversary locations, images from a specific era or a much loved children's book.
