The cover of each notebook is a one-of-a-kind ecoprint I created on watercolour paper using ginkgo leaves and natural logwood dye. The distinctive fan-shaped ginkgo leaf is a symbol of longevity and profound endurance. Inside are 48 pages of FSC-certified 60lb lined writing paper, which is marker and fountain-pen friendly.
Ecoprinting, which is also called botanical contact printing, is the process of capturing dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. All the colors you see come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints – and every print is unique. I choose the very best ecoprints for notebook covers, then seal the covers with a special Japanese starch to make them more durable. I bind each notebook by hand using waxed linen thread and the chain stitch creates a pleasing pattern on the book's spine.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If you would like to order a customized book, please contact me.
To make the pages for my books, I fold one long sheet of paper in half so that it turns into 4 pages when you count both sides of the page. So a book with 176 pages of writing or drawing paper contains 44 sheets of paper folded in half. And a sketchbook with 88 pages of watercolour paper contains 22 sheets of paper folded in half.
I use Canada Post and will ship your order promptly – often on the same day I receive it – but I can't guarantee how quickly it will reach you, even if you have select ed expedited shipping. You are responsible for providing me with the correct name and address for shipping, and I cannot be held responsible for incorrect information.
