Every so often I’m seized by the urge to use up stuff that’s been lurking in my studio. I go through phases of this because it usually takes a lot more effort to come up with projects for random bits and pieces than it does to work on regular stuff. This little project was hit upon when I realised I had various decent-sized bits of leather kicking about, and also some spare cahier-style notebooks. It was, for a change, actually a fairly quick thing to make – which means I’ll be making a couple more of these very soon once I’ve finished sifting through my leather stash. The cover of this one is a gorgeous calfskin, and of course it’s refillable: the notebooks inside are from Hema but refills from Moleskine or Muji should fit just fine.
