THE VERSATILITY OF THESE NOTEBOOKS IS ONE OF THEIR GREAT STRENGTHS AND IT WAS IMPORTANT
THAT WHETHER THEY ARE USED FOR TRAVEL NOTES, FIELD WORK, DRAWING, WRITING OR JUST SHOPPING LISTS, THEY WERE AS PLEASURABLE TO USE AS A HIGH QUALITY LARGER NOTEBOOK, BUT JUST IN A SMALLER, MORE CONVENIENT SIZE. WE WANTED A VERY DIFFERENT PAPER TO OTHER NOTEBOOKS WE HAD SEEN, SOMETHING A TOUCH HEAVIER AND MUCH BETTER QUALITY, THAT CRUCIALLY WOULD TAKE A FOUNTAIN PEN WITHOUT BLEEDING OR SHOWING THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE. OF COURSE IT STILL HAD TO BE 100% RECYCLED AND MADE IN BRITAIN.
AFTER MANY TRIALS WE FOUND THE PERFECT PAPER AT ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE MILLS, STONEYWOOD, ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER DON IN SCOTLAND: A WOVEN 120GSM PAPER THAT WORKS WONDERFULLY WITH PEN AND PENCIL.
THE COVER AND WALLETS ARE HAND LETTERPRESS PRINTED ON TREADLE PRESSES AND TYPESET IN JOHNSTON SANS, DRAFTED IN 1913 FOR THE LONDON UNDERGROUND. THE CARD IS 80% RECYCLED. THE NOTEBOOKS ARE BOUND ON A C1890 GERMEN STITCHER, USING VINTAGE COPPERED STAPLES. THE WALLETS HAVE BRASS EYELETS HANDSET OVER THE WASHERS AND A LINEN THREAD. BOTH THE NOTEBOOK AND WALLET ARE ROBUST, TO ENSURE THEY CAN KEEP UP WITH USE AND TRAVEL
87MM X 140MM WITH 48 PLAIN PAGES
