I was really inspired by Patrick Ng's post entitled "Elements of My Perfect Little Notebook" on his blog Scription and decided to incorporate just a few of the elements into these notebooks, which I made as a gift for my husband.
These little books are bound with a simple pamplet stitch in red thread, have textured grey card covers and are sized according to the golden ratio - see my previous post on Divinely Proportioned Notebooks. They are fairly slim volumes and so far I have made one for each of the first six months of the year.
The cover photos are ones which were taken on a trip to Japan and I chose a black and white effect in order to give more uniformity to the set. As you can see they are date stamped and the relevant month is picked out in red and further emphasized by a little tag made of hemp.
Finally, I attached a small calendar of the relevant month to the inside cover, just for reference. The pages are mostly plain, apart from 4 - one for each week, which are lined and have a title box, as shown below.
I am really pleased with the way these turned out. Think I will make a similar set for myself now and maybe I will even get round to making some kind of a wrapper to keep them all safe.
