Our Finest Leather Notebooks for Gamers

Finely hand-crafted from a seamless piece of thick hide, and finished using an ancient method of oak bark tanning, each soft, supple notebook is masterfully embellished with a highly detailed embossing of one of our beautiful designs. Each intricate pattern is gently and permanently applied to the leather, creating raised and relieved designs that are a pleasure to run your fingers across. Created from the finest full-grain leather, retaining the characterful marks of hide, each notebook is left unpolished, ensuring it will develop a desirable rich and natural patina with age.

Four Designs to Choose From - Choose the Notebook that will accompany you on your journey...

Chronicle all as you walk the vast wilds of your lands, keeper of all that you behold, be it in human shape or animal. Bound in our softest, vegetable tanned, luxury suede, the Druid’s Chronicle is our finest example yet of the exquisite embossing techniques that we have elevated to an art form. Subtly enchanted vines and leaves twist together to form a remarkable frontispiece that conceals a quote from William Blake on the underleaf.

It is said that most wizards and mages fear the infernal fires, the deathly arts, and the forbidden realms of demons. Where some only see evil - the enterprising mind sees opportunity. With your Book of the Pact, you may choose to rule over the forces of havoc and master the sinister arcane arts, unleashing your wrath upon enemies in the form of hellfire or elemental rage. Become a scholar of the hidden, and tread where others fear to go, creating devious plans and bending even great devils to your will, binding brimstone and shadow to your body. But remember to abide by the cautionary Latin inscription that weaves around your Book of the Pact - although knowledge may be power, there is no genius without madness…

Risks and challenges

In 2017, we fulfilled Gametee: World's Finest Leather Notebooks for Gamers with the assistance of 1610 Backers. We delivered the project on time to an exceptional standard of quality and craftsmanship. We are proud to say that each of our four previous successful campaigns have all been delivered on schedule.

Our second edition of this project should be even smoother. We anticipate no delays.

We are in the final stage of production, but we need your kind assistance to take us into full manufacture.

We are experienced in shipping worldwide and have successfully delivered 6500 Kickstarter rewards in our four previous campaigns.

We believe in openness, transparency, and independence - all of your questions and queries will be dealt with quickly and personally. We are a trustworthy family business, happy to help.

Once again, we have taken our designs to the prototyping phase, but due to the high investment needed to produce these beautiful items, we simply cannot do it without your help.

With your investment we can bring another of our dream products to life!
