A hand stitched book perfect for note taking or sketching. The cover features an original print taken from an antique book. These images have been personally selected to frame upon the books due to their beautiful illustrations and timeless appeal.
The book is sewn in a Coptic binding style with linen thread and the 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.I have chosen this style of sewing to keep the book simple whilst focussing on the cover image.
The book contains 40 pages of white 120gsm recycled paper which has delicate flecks of bank notes! These can be seen faintly sprinkled throughout the paper but will not distract from anything written or drawn upon it.
Measurements are 14.2cm H x 14.2cm W x 1.8cm D.

All items are delivered using My Hermes protected delivery which aims to arrive 2-3 days after dispatch.
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.
To custom order please specify;
Paper type: Textured/ smooth, lined or plain paper, and thickness for writing/drawing/painting
The image chosen and it's size will determine the book format of portrait or landscape.
