The Waste Not Collection
The process of letterpress printing requires many tests, and sometimes these tests deliver such beautiful results that I can't bare to part with them.
The Waste Not Collection is born from these prints. Incidental marks, random placements and accidents produce surprising overlaps and textures, prints that often cannot be achieved by well-intentioned plans and rational thinking.
I love this playful way of working and I hope you do too.
Please note the beauty of these notebooks lies in their variation of print, placement and sense of play, please be mindful that these items may contain, various cover stocks, internal papers, incidental marks, unusual quirks such as prints inside the cover and no set design.
These notebooks are made using various botanical motifs from past print runs.
Each notebook is filled with a natural brown unlined paper for freedom and ease of use and is most suitable for pen, collage and mixed media.
These mid-sized notebooks are perfect for open-air observations, the recording of flora and fauna, composing songs and making lists of far off destinations.
They are made to age well and to be dutifully preserved for future reference.
Sold as a set of three.
