A hand-marbled luxury hard-cover journal, personalized with a name or initials in gold foil. Made to the highest standards, each book is completely unique.
A striking, original gift for list-makers, artists and journalers or something special for those hard-to-buy-for-people; this is a one-of-a-kind book made using traditional paper marbling techniques which involve ‘floating’ paints on a gloopy bath of thickened water and skillfully manipulating them to make beautiful, elegant patterns.
We do all the marbling and hand-make all our books in our South London studio to ensure supreme quality.
Most of our colours are perfect for either gender, though you might want to choose our delicate ‘Pastels’ for extra feminine appeal or ‘Slate & Metallics’ for a textural, masculine feel.
Our journals come in a handy 'Pocket’ size, or 'A5' for those who like a bit more space.
The 'Feather' pattern is available in Abalone Shell; Blue, Gold & Copper; Forest Greens; Slate & Metallics; Pastels; Indigo & Wine. Because each book is made with an original marbled paper, you will receive one slightly different from the pictures shown, but it will be just as beautiful!
Choose lined pages for writing and lists or plain for sketching and art. All our inside pages are made from premium Italian paper.
Personalise with a name or initials to make the book that little bit more special.
Every book is covered with a completely unique piece of paper, carefully marbled by hand in our South London studio.
Super-smooth ivory paper or a lovely textural recycled grey paper are used as a base paper, depending on the chosen colours, which are mixed carefully for each marbling run.
We use acrylic paint for its durability and brightness – it won’t rub off or dissolve but, as we don't use mass-manufacturing treatments, the papers are not coated so we recommend keeping them away from water where possible to avoid warping.
Each book contains 240 pages (120 leaves), made from lovely ivory-toned Italian paper, with a choice of subtle narrow lines or blank laid paper. We like the detail that the lines don't go right to edges of the paper and are contained within each page.
All our books are constructed by hand using thick greyboard for sturdy, quality covers.
Names or initials are stamped manually in golden foil onto the front cover, and our Maker Mark is foiled on the reverse. We use gold foil for an extra luxurious shimmer.
Pocket journals measure 9.5cm x 13.5cm x 1.6cm and A5 books measure 21.5cm x 15cm x 1.9cm.
