‘Beautiful Beetles’ Guest Book
I bought this book as a Christmas present, and it was vet well received. Everyone around the table thought it looked gorgeous! The materials used were of very good quality, and the illustration had gorgeous details.
This is an exceptional quality journal! I think the copper foil is very unique on its own, and the handmade details stand out and feel superb in the hand. I feel inspired just holding it!
This beautifully crafted journal is perfect! I love the feel, the look and choice of paper, too. It will be my constant companion in workshops, rehearsals – for thoughts and ideas, a poem or two, scribbles n scrawls … Many thanks, Bumblebee Bindery. X
My first order from the bindery was a shot in the dark as I had never seen anything similar before. What a wonderful surprise, it was a real work of art. I thought it was stunning. I ordered four more and gave them as Christmas presents. One friend, who had special art paper in her book told me, her book was gorgeous and far too good to risk putting paintings in directly, so she did the pictures first, in case she made a mistake, and then stuck them in the book. There are a lovely selection of fabrics to chose from the bindery and the stitching on the spines is beautiful. You will love them!
I was lucky enough to receive some of Bumblebee Bindery’s very first prototype books a couple of years ago and I am delighted to now have two more in my possession. Made to order with lined and plain paper and beautifully finished, they are a delight to look at and I cannot wait to use them. they will have a tough year as entomology notebooks to be used in the field, but I know they are up to the job. Arrived swiftly from order date and carefully packaged, thank you Bumblebee Bindery!

This is an exceptional quality journal...or in my case, a sketchbook! I think the copper foil tooled into the leather is very unique on its own, and the handmade details stand out and feel superb in the hand. I feel inspired just holding it!
Exquisite work, and super-responsive service. A wonderful way to support individual artists and craftspeople this holiday season (hint!)
The products are great (so pretty!), and the prices decent. The range of products is remarkable (considering these are all made by one person! way to go :D ) and very good quality. So good in fact, I still find it daunting to write in my new notebooks! Also, I love that the products use materials that are durable yet ethically sourced - it feels good to know I can have a beautiful notebook whose production hasn't involved damaging the environment. More importantly, for those not living in the UK (like myself), the shipping isn't ridiculously expensive, and reasonably quick to arrive (taking into account any local postage delays). The notebooks themselves are great for personal use - or for buying as presents. Some of my friends have started asking where I got them from... [guess what they are getting for Christmas ;) ]
