Limited edition of 25 per colour, September 2016. Hand-made at the MARK+FOLD studio in London, using waxed linen thread.

Our first set of Hand-made Exercise Books were created to mark the launch of Mark+Fold in November 2015. We have since created a number of special editions in collaboration with SCP, Harvey Nichols, Another Country and Bamford. These were riffs on our signature design — inset fore-edge and contrasting end papers and thread.

We sew the books by hand in our London studio, using waxed linen thread from Northern Ireland. As with all our notebooks, we use one of the most smooth and luxurious off-white papers we have come across. Olin is made at Stoneywood Mill in Aberdeenshire, one of the last surviving mills on the River Don.

    A5 Ota-bind notebook, 160 pages. First batch of 500 (November 2015). Our signature notebook, which we have developed in response to the request for a ‘perfect notebook for every day.’ Ota-bound using thread-sewing and a small amount of cold glue, to retain flexibility in the spine; the result is as durable as it is elegant. The book simply falls open flat when placed on a surface for writing. Pages in Naturalis Vanilla Smooth, milled on the banks of the River Leven in Scotland, is remarkably smooth on both sides. End papers in Colorplan, made in the Lake District. Cover in Wild Black, which is made from 35% cotton fibres, develops a great patina with use. Thumbcut motif in copper foil, and blind deboss. Each notebook is hand-numbered. If you would like a specific number between 1 and 500, please include a note at checkout. (NB: Numbering is per batch and specific numbers are subject to availability. Higher numbers are more likely to be available). Designed in London. Foiled and debossed in Scotland. Bound in Holland. Read more about the design and making of the MARK ONE.
