Cambridge Imprint Hardback Notebooks are inspired by the slim patterned German Insel-Bücherei books of the inter-war period. (In the United Kingdom, King Penguins had a similar design, and later on Ladybird books shared the same format.) They have 80 pages of plain cream paper, sewn properly and bound into a slim, light hardback notebook, covered in our patterned paper, that opens completely flat.
Each notebook measures 18.5 cm tall by 12 cm wide. The front cover has a rectangular cream label.
Cambridge Imprint is a small paper-making business in Cambridge, England, designing and printing patterned paper. They are known for beautiful colours, joyful illustration and typography, a lively, hand-drawn aesthetic, and meticulous attention to detail.
Cambridge Imprint is a design partnership of painter Claerwen James, textile artist Jane Powell and ceramicist Ali Murphy. They use simple hand-stencilled screen-printing to create their original designs, and spot-colour lithography to replicate that studio process in manufacturing the final paper product. The result is a matte paper of unparalleled intensity and clarity of colour.
