The 2018 Diary has a cover in grey-green, with copper foil details. The page layouts are printed in muted grey. The diary has 112 pages, with a week-per-spread and a year overview for 2018 and 2019. They are printed in Netherlands by Drukkerij Tielen, and ota-bound at Binderij Hexspoor for a perfect layflat. First batch of 300, September 2017.
The pages are 120gsm Olin Smooth Cream, which is milled at Stoneywood, Aberdeenshire. It is beautifully smooth and thick enough that even an inky pen won’t bleed through. The warm cream tone is calm and classy.
As with all our notebooks and diaries, each diary is individually numbered and hand-wrapped at our London workshop.
In response to feedback from users of our 2017 Diary, we have made some tweaks :
— we are including a set of brass page markers with each copy, to help you keep track of the current week, and important dates coming up
— we have avoided printing on the end pages to allow more white space
WELCOME TO THE FOLD
The Mark+Fold Stationery Subscription is an opportunity for people who share our passion for great stationery to receive regular packages from us and become more closely linked with our work in the studio.
Each Subscription package is thoughtfully created and personalised for individual subscribers, including hand-written notes. We can also accommodate preferences for specific products, colours and bespoke details.
THE MARK+FOLD SUBSCRIPTION 2018
Upon receipt of your order, we will send you a Welcome Pack* with a personalised letter, membership card and your very own subscriber number. This is presented in a luxury A5 envelope on 135gsm stock.
You will then receive 4 parcels from us at regular intervals throughout the year — towards the end of February, May, August and November. Parcels will always include a notebook (or a set of smaller notebooks), and a selection smaller items such as our solid brass paperclips, pencils and greetings cards. We also like to surprise you with small gifts that we hand-make in the London studio, and which are exclusive to subscribers.
We will send you 2x £10 Gift Cards to spend at markandfold.com. These can be given away as gifts, or they can be put towards an extra treat for yourself.
Subscribers have preview access to new products before they go on general sale. And from time to time, you may be invited to take part in our design process when we are developing new products; this often involves us sending you mock-ups to try out and tell us what you think. We always love to hear feedback about the products or ideas for new things you’d like to see us doing in future.
Our friends at Doe share our commitment to exceptionally high quality materials and make, and a pared-back aesthetic that lets the materials speak for themselves. From both angles, the idea of a leather cover for a notebook had been something in mind for some time, and we are very excited to reveal the outcome of our collaboration.
Limited edition of 24, each with a different embossed leather used for the pen loop, taken from Doe’s historic archive, dating back to the 1930s. Each variation is shown here, and requests for a specific one can be accommodated subject to availability.
The leather covers are designed to slot over the cover of all notebooks and diaries in the Mark+Fold range, meaning that they can be used time and time again and will develop a beautiful patina with use — bridle hide is a material that gets better with age.
Needless to say, the leather had to be the best — bridle leather, hand-waxed in the UK.
— Fits an A5 softback notebook
— Black bridle leather
— Made in Walsall, England
— Limited edition of 24
