New books in the shop at last! Amidst the somewhat exhausting whirlwind of more artistic projects and ideas I put together this minimalistic duo of small Coptic bound notebooks with leather spines. I've previously only combined the leather spine with tarred paper covers, but as I stumbled upon this beautiful dusty pink linen that matched some leather I had lying around I changed my mind about whether it was alright to use leather and linen in the same book. (Yeah, I have strange rules.)
These books are really lightweight and wonderful to handle, and the pages are rough recycled brown paper that works with many kinds of pens and pencils. As the spines are covered with leather, these books make great travel companions that handle tons more wear and tear than a bare-spined book would.
The books are just a hair larger than a postcard at 10,7x15,2x1,5 cm / 5"x7"x0.8" and they have 80 pages each. You can find them for sale here.
I have caught a cold that makes it super hard for me to keep my head above my shoulders and myself in upright position, so that's all for today. I'm heading back to bed to nurse both myself and the new bullet journal ideas I have brewing (should my brain function allow such complicated thoughts).
