The Bindery

Hi, Welcome to the notebooks and journals page.

This page is all about using vintage and older covers to make a new notebook or journal. Most will have 50 leaves to make 100 pages of blank paper inside. This blank paper is Australian 50% recycled and is also certified to the Australian Forestry Standard. (This confirms that the new fibre is sourced only from sustainably managed plantations and forestry operations.

All these handcrafted notebooks, journals and albums and more now available at Alan's shop on
