The cover of each one of these hand bound mini notebooks is a one-of-a-kind ecoprint I created on watercolour paper using maple leaves and petals from flowers I grew in my garden. Inside are 48 pages of 60# FSC-certified lined paper, which is fountain-pen and marker 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 book by hand using waxed linen thread and the chain stitch creates a pleasing pattern on the book’s spine.
