This stunning leather notebook cover from Archie's Calligraphy is pure luxury! Hand made in Poland, this is a really striking notebook cover crafted from Italian high-grade soft and supple leather with a textile lining that has the appearance of chamois and as it is B5 sized it can be used with a range of inserts. Stylish, traditional and utterly beautiful, this is a real statement piece that will remain with you for years!
The notebook contains 120 B5 sheets (240 pages) of 100g paper, ideal for writing with fountain or calligraphy pens and utilises the same paper as used in Archie's Calligraphy pads. The paper works well with most available inks and there is no feathering or bleeding, and see-through is minimal so it is possible to write on both sides of the page.
The notebook is printed with a delicate light brown dot grid but with slightly larger dots every 1cm, and every 1/3cm smaller dots are printed. This allows you to use the notebook both for everyday writing with a fountain pen and for most calligraphy styles (eg Italic or Copperplate) for which the division of the row into 3 is more natural than in 2. In addition, it will certainly meet with the approval of people whose handwriting is smaller than 5 mm! Four page markers are attached.
The notebook is fully hand stitched, which allows it to be laid flat on every page. It is closed by an elastic band attached to the back cover. A special double back cover design allows attaching the notebook to the dedicated B5 leather cover by Archie's Calligraphy with a safe fountain pen holder.
Available in a choice of 6 colours.
The leather cover is designed to be used with a fountain pen and B5 format notebook. A carefully designed safe place for a fountain pen is inside the spine of the cover. Thanks to this solution, even the most valuable fountain pen is protected against all potential damages from all sides. An additional leather strap protects the clip against possible scratches. The cover can hold one king size fountain pen - please note that the pen shown in image is for illustration purposes only and is not included!
On the left side of the cover there is a pocket for small items whilst on the right side of the cover there is a leather strap that allows the B5 notebook to be firmly attached. Once the notebook is properly mounted, the cover may be closed with a elastic band at the back cover of the notebook.
