Bound notebooks give you more freedom over your creative ideas. Simply add and remove pages from the super soft leather jacket – you can refill entirely using the range of paper grids available or download them for free to print yourself. If you are a perfectionist or like to keep it loose – this notebook will naturally adapt to your workflow.

Every single notebook is cut-out, folded, tied and stamped by me (Marcus Kelman). They are each uniquely numbered, so you can be assured they have been quality checked at every stage of the process.

The notebook jackets are hand cut from Saint Crispin babycalf leather – buttery to the touch with soft microfiber lining. The back side of the notebook is embossed with the Bound monogram.

There is a range of paper grids that you can use to refill or alternatively print using the free templates. Designed using non-photo blue, should you need to scan your work – the grid can be easily removed.

Bound notebooks are designed for the most common paper sizes. There are two jacket sizes to choose from: Regular and Small. Folded A4 or Letter paper will fit inside of the regular size jacket. The smaller small size is designed for A5 or half letter and will also allow for typical small notebooks (Moleskine Cahier or Fieldnotes). Pick the size that’s right for you or get them both as a bundle.

Risks and challenges

Materials:
All of the materials are sourced from different suppliers and it is of course a possibility that they could be out of stock when the notebooks go into production. In which case I would find and alternative or if reasonable, move the delivery date.

Delivery time:
The current delivery date is an approximation. Every notebook will be handmade by me and it is possible that it could take more (or less) time than expected.

Any issues that I may run into will be posted in the updates section.
