Original Book Sketch Notebook - Taxon - Vol IX

Regular price£20.00

This vintage sketch notebook features an original cover from an old, unwanted book that has been rescued from a library requiring space for new books.  The inner works are removed by hand and refilled with unlined sketch paper from sustainably managed forests, giving new life to an old book. 

Why we love it

  • Repurposed from an old, unused book that has been thrown out
  • Thick blank pages ideal for notes, journaling, doodling or sketching
  • Hand made in a social employment facility offering paid work to local people with poor job prospects
  • A 'One of a Kind' product (there is no other like it in the world!) - makes a really special stationery gift

Every notebook sketchbook is a true 'one-off'. Old unwanted books are donated by libraries, second hand book shops, and publishing companies and About Blanks remove the old inner works and refill the hardback cover with sustainable blank sketch paper. The blank paper has a light cream shade and the texture makes it perfect for sketching and making notes. Because the old covers are reused, each About: Blanks sketch notebook is different and therefore unique and one of a kind.

Hand made in The Netherlands at a social employment facility, where people with a disability or poor job prospects can get a job, and through this participate in society. The brand's main aim is to make products that stimulate personal stories and development for users, and also for its co-workers.

Measures approximately 14cm wide x 20.5cm long.

Materials: Original vintage hardback book cover with FSC approved paper pages.
