A beautiful handmade notebook in a traditional 'Arabesque' design of flowers and leaves, in shades of russet, peach, green and cream, with soft gold highlights. Wonderful warm rich palette which looks and feels great.
A very strong brown cloth finishes off the look of the outside of the notebook very nicely.
The endpapers (the bit inside each of the covers!) are a lovely shade of green to complement the covers
This A5 / A6 russet and green Florentine notebook contains a completely handmade, hand stitched 64 page book block made up of high quality 120gsm acid free lined / unlined paper, this gives you 128 sides to write on
We use a variety of carefully selected papers from all around the world. Always keeping in mind that we want to create luxury notebooks. The papers we select are also less prone to wear and tear due to their quality and thickness.
We use an acid free 120gsm paper compared to most standard notebooks which use something in the region of 80-90gsm. This makes the pages a much higher quality and much nicer to write on.
The board is used for the covers and is what gives a notebook its strength. Many notebook brands use a board called grey board, the issue with this is that it offers relatively poor strength qualities and in most cases is not acid free which can lead to fading.
This is why we use a board called mill board. This is much stronger, is acid free so it will not deteriorate and is harder to the touch giving it a more luxurious feel.
The book cloth is what is wrapped around the spine of a notebook and adds strength and flexibility. We use a high quality open weave book cloth and carefully select the colours to match our papers.
We use a waxed linen 3 ply thread that is very strong and will keep your notebook in great shape throughout its lifetime of use.
The headbands are located at the top and bottom of the spine and prevent wear at the top and bottom of the book as well as being highly decorative. We choose our headbands to match or complement the colours of our notebooks.
