A luxury hand-marbled hard-back journal, personalized with a foiled name or initials. Each one is utterly unique and made to the highest standards.
A beautiful and original gift for sketchers, list-makers, journalers and those hard-to-buy-for-people; this is a truly one-of-a-kind book made using traditional marbling techniques involving ‘floating’ paint on a gloopy bath of thickened water and manipulating them to make striking, elegant patterns.
We do all the marbling and make all our books individually in our South London studio to ensure supreme quality.
Most of our colours are suitable for either gender, though you might want to choose delicate ‘Pastels’ for extra feminine appeal or ‘Slate & Metallics’ for a more pared-backed masculine feel.
Our journals are available in a handy 'Pocket’ size, or 'A5' for those who need a bit more space.
The 'Swirl' 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.
Personalise with a name or initials to make the book that little bit more special.
Every book is made with a completely unique piece of paper, skilfully 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 vividness – they won’t rub off or dissolve but, as the books themselves are made of traditional untreated paper, we recommend keeping them away from water where possible to avoid warping.
Each book contains 240 pages (120 leaves), made from premium ivory-toned Italian paper, with a choice of subtle narrow lines or blank laid paper.
All our books are constructed by hand using thick board for sturdy, luxurious covers.
Names or initials are stamped manually in golden foil onto the front cover, and our Maker Mark is foiled on the reverse.
Pocket journals measure 9.5cm x 13.5cm x 1.6cm and A5 books measure 21.5cm x 15cm x 1.9cm.
