A5 Cloth-bound journal, 60 pages. Limited edition of 250 (February 2016).
The second in our series of Limited Edition notebooks, which each showcase special materials and binding techniques.
The pages are 'Singer-sewn' (on a sewing machine similar to those used to stitch fabric). There is then a 2-piece hard-back case, which is wrapped in natural book cloth, to create an unusual notebook combining the slimline quality of an exercise book with the elegance of a cloth-bound cover. Book cloth made in Holland. End papers in Flint grey Colorset, which is made in Germany from 100% post industrial waste.
Pages in Olin Smooth Cream, milled at the Stoneywood Paper Mill in Aberdeenshire, one of the last surviving mills on the River Don in Scotland. It is very smooth and a pleasure to write on.
Each notebook is hand-numbered. If you would like a specific number between 1 and 250, 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. Bound in Cheshire, UK.
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.
