Never Mind The E Books Here’s The Real Thing handmade notebook. Inspired by the fanzines and music (of my youth) from the 1970’s and 80’s these individually hand bound note books take a swing at the soulless ebooks. Bound in book cloth (not plastic coated paper made to look like cloth) and prints from the original art work, these books are meant to be used. The text block paper is lined 70gsm, section sewn (with thread). Collaged Note Books. Hand bound note books in book cloth (not plastic coated paper made to look like cloth) and unique hand collaged art work makes for a book that is as unique as its owner. Evoking a bygone (Victorian) era with a contemporary twist, images and text are derived from the book-artists personal collection. The collaged art work often includes up-cycled and recycled papers. No two books will be the same. The text block paper is lined 70gsm, section sewn (with thread).
