Bindings with a Modern Twist

Collection-of-coptic-variation-bindings

Coptic

One of the earliest binding style with examples found as early as 200AD. A versatile lay-flat style, on exposed or covered spine, suitable for many creative designs.

Long-Stitch-Collection-and-variations

Long Stitch

A centuries-old technique with examples dating from the second century, primarily in Germany. With straight or intricate lacing , it is as earthy or elaborate as needed.

Collection-Belgian-Bindings-and-Japanese-Paper

Secret Belgium

Sometimes called criss-cross binding, the name comes from an exemplar hidden in a Belgian Library. The book opens flat, like the more common Coptic binding. Simple elegance, or elegant simplicity!

Example-of-japanese-binding-and paper

Japanese Binding

This style actually originated in China and is one of many Oriental bookbinding techniques. The minimalist four holes binding structure with a thin flexible paper cover is of timeless elegance.

Classic-raised-band-Binding

Classic

It is the rounded spine of vintage books, sometimes with the raised cord showing under a layer of leather. Head- and tailbands, rounded fore edge and bookmark make it timeless and reliable.

Insert

Using the simple but effective saddle stitching, use those booklets either as topical repositories, purpose driven day-today aid, or simply as mood-companions, either as standalone or in your favourite refillable.

Refillables

An Introduction to the Midori Traveler’s Notebook (part one) … At it’s most basic, the Midori Traveler’s Notebook is a simple leather cover with an elastic band to hold notebooks inside, an elastic band to hold it closed and a thread to mark your page (like the ribbon you get in many notebooks)

Collection-of-travel-journal

Midori

A practical and convenient soft vegan cover to keep all your inserts in one place.

Announcement-for-new-collections-to-arrive

FauxDori

A hard cover version that can not only hold inserts but also be used a notebook cover for added protection.

PAPERS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

Various Weight, Acid Free

I Love Writing

We use Stonemarque Conqueror paper, which is suitable for fountain pens as all other instruments, including calligraphy dip pens. It has excellent tooth, a firm body, and allows for very crisp lines. It has a very elegant feel and is simply a delight to write on. Do I need to say? No bleeding, ghosting or feathering

Our inclusion paper is upcycled and made on a heirloom maintained by a not-for-profit group of enthusiasts. This great for writing and sketching, maybe not for fountain and calligraphy pens. It has a slightly spongy feel, giving it some warmth and making this range very ‘homely’. This range is fabulous for indie travel journals or any journal that wants to stand 

Available lined, dot grid, grid and specific layouts

I Love Art-ing

We have something for all styles and needs: 

  • Our range of inclusion paper has not only oodles of character but also has a good tooth for sketching
  • Our Superior Cartridge paper will give fabulous results for sketching where texture matters (Graphite, colouring pencils, pastels)
  • Our smooth recycled multi-media bamboo paper will take all paints, inks, markers and of course collage.
  • Interleaf paper available on request

… And of course we also offer watercolour paper for very wet techniques.

We can do single leaf or blind binding to keep all your precious loose artwork in one place

 

I Love my Photos

We can offer two styles of photographic supports and interleaf paper if desired:

Our heavy weight inclusion paper will give you the support and the discreet character that your pictures deserves.

Alternatively, we use heavy weight white yet slightly textured recycled rag cotton paper for a one of kind album.

Interleaf paper is available using fine Japanese Tissue paper.

ALL OUR PAPERS ARE ACID FREE, IRRESPECTIVE OF PURPOSE.

My Digital Detox is so much more!

Are you composing your own tune? Tickling the guitar? Practicing calligraphy?… Looking for specific layouts?… Let’ s talk on how to best capture those gems.
