Blank Sketchbooks (Batch #1)



[Out of Stock]

250gsm Naturalis Absolute White, 35pp

Referencing page 146 of Robert Bringhurst’s The Elements of Typographic Style, these notebooks—made from paper offcuts—have page proportions derived using music intervals (e.g., major 3rd = 4:5, octave = 1:2). This allows economical use of offcut batches of varying dimensions to create a range of ‘consistently’ sized notebooks. This first batch (#1) share the width of 12cm.

Prices are determined by surface area. Colour of spiral coil may differ from sample photo.
