These beautiful decorative small books are an excellent notebook for your bag. Flexible, yet durable, they will last and add a little bit of handbound delightfulness to your everyday!
The basic pamphlet binding is the first stage in developing your binding skills, using only a single section, they are a teaching aid to learn basic skills in handling paper and sewing folios and endpapers. This particular design, I have adapted to be simple, yet also include a square at the foredge of the book and coloured endpapers. This gives your book more strength at its foredge as well as tactile finish.

Please select the number of the book you would like from the dropdown list, this corresponds to the number on the shelves in the images. This will ensure you receive the design you want.
The covers vary from hand marbled papers, decorative papers and papers that I have deigned myself.
The paper used in these books will be one of the following, and is unfortunately not selectable:
Canson Cartridge Paper is a fantastic basic off white paper with a slightly rough finish that feels great to work with. At 100gsm it has a high quality feel and, makes it a nice paper to write and draw on.
Cairn Eco Kraft is 100% recycled and brown in colour. It has a slightly calendared finish on one side and a rougher finish on the other. At 100gsm it is a high quality paper and will add a pleasant bulk to your book.
Approximately 8 folios, making 16 leaves.
