Multi Layer Covers

Our multilayered hardback covers are a heavyweight masterpiece weighing in over 1000gsm.

They are made from multiple layers sandwiched together to form a colourfull and rigid board.

A bright raspberry red inner board coupled with a subtly tactile photogenic outer print is most popular throughout our Cremona and Modena notebooks.

We step up the game when it comes to the Savile Row hardback covers. A truly unique deepest dark blue with grey pinstripe outer layer sandwiched to a rich black core and pearlescent platinum liner. A classic case of sartorial elegance at work.

It's not all about gsm; the weight of paper does not directly relate to its quality.

Having been involved with stationery and print for over 30 years, I have come across many different paper stocks. For the majority of our Notebooks, Planners, and Journals we use a delectable Italian paper for the writing pages. It's an 85gsm uncoated acid-free FSC paper that is biodegradable, recyclable, and fountain pen friendly. Yes, it may 'only' be 85gsm, yet it's high-bulk credentials, stiffness and surface texture makes it a luxury touchy-feely paper.

I love the gentle soft milky white shade of the paper combined with the cyan fine ruled lines or dot grid print options.

The attention to detail of paper selection also extends to the cover stocks bringing substance and style.
