Hardbound with a reinforced spine, these simply bound notebooks feature 100% cotton bookcloth finished with a starch coating to enhance & protect its linen-effect texture.
The books are designed as a modified Chinese Stitched Binding – a style that’s been in use since at least as early the 14th century. Prized for their decorative nature, books of this type will sit open comfortably in the hand, making them a great choice for taking notes on the move.
Landscape in format, each of these notebooks is bound on the short edge with 4-ply linen yarn. The yarn passes through five sewing holes, each of which has a set of either coloured, or metallic, eyelets. This external stitching combines with hinges on both the front and back covers, for notebooks that are both flexible, and extremely sturdy.
Inside each book, you’ll find a satin ribbon bookmark with a small, silver-coloured bumblebee charm on the free end; beautiful endpages in natural white with a small repeating silver pattern of floral flourishes; and approximately 96 pages (192 sides) of the Bindery’s 100gsm Notebook Paper. This is a smooth, bright white paper with impressive age-resistance and an excellent environmental profile.
