This small luxury notebook is hardbound in genuine dark chocolate brown leather; and finished with a carefully recessed glass tile.  Abstract in design, the tile shows off a range of Autumn metallic colours and is bordered by an unusual wrapped core which is hand-sewn in brick-red and gold silk threads.

The book is based on a binding structure that was originally patented in 1799 and was a popular choice for stationery bindings in Britain and Germany until the middle of the 20th Century. Designed to cope well with high usage, and to open flat for best use at a table; robust books like these make excellent Desk Journals, guest books, and ledgers.

Inside, you’ll find beautifully printed cream-coloured endpapers with a traditional repeating red pattern, a satin ribbon bookmark in brown; and approximately 192 pages (384 sides) of the Bindery’s 100gsm Notebook Paper. This is a smooth, bright white paper with impressive age-resistance and an excellent environmental profile. The book’s endbands are hand-sewn silk thread, in brick red and gold to match the cover’s border.
