Mini Shoe Leather Recycled Hand Bound Notebooks by Kate Bowles

These mini notebooks have been created using traditional bookbinding methods. The spine on each book has been left exposed (it's such a shame to hide this particularly attractive feature!) Rather than using traditional linen tape, Kate has used vintage bias binding and coloured button cottons. The book covers were originally shoe leather samples and are secured with a Dorset button and plaited threads.
Measurements: height 6.5cm, width 6.5 cm and depth 2 cm. Each book contains 10 signatures, or 50 folios (folded pages), of assorted recycled papers. Beautiful!
