As you have probably noticed, we have been quite nostalgic about handwriting and journaling recently. We also wrote a lot about good, old fashioned stationary and notebooks and our sincere wish for them to make a huge comeback. Today, we are going to feature a notebook with a twist, and the twist is that you are its main designer. The team at Mustard Design Agency is the brainchild behind a wonderful invention which they call Book Block, a fully customizable notebook. They have also recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to get more people on board with this innovative and highly creative idea.
With Book Block, you not only design a full custom notebook, you also get to choose the elastic and ribbon color, as well as pick from five high quality paper stocks. Imagine what a perfect present would Book Block make! Essentially, whatever you imagine could be featured on the cover of Book Block. You can choose a photo that is dear to you, your favorite drawing, your own artwork…. Sky is the limit!
Mustard Design Agency has paired with the London-based company Monsieur Notebook, known for their Real Leather Notebooks, to create this original brand. If you choose to put together your own notebook, you will be able to print in full four colors. The designers chose the European A5 size (21 x 15cm / 8.25”x 6”) as the standard cover size which gives you a larger canvass to play with. The material on which your artwork will be printed has a luxury feel and smooth finish and the notebook will be printed in 2400 x 2400 dpi with crisp photographic quality. The ribbons are made from beautiful double satin and are available in a wide range of colors.
