By working in exclusive partnerships with museums and art collections around the world, we have curated a unique and evolving library of designs.
A theme that remains constant throughout this diverse selection of covers is a celebration of imaginations that make the impossible possible.
Thin, dark grey lines.
Blank, ivory-coloured paper.
Blank staves for musical compositions.
From the portable micro to the substantial grande, we offer a journal format for everyone.
Originally used in Coptic bindings, clasps give protection and provide decoration.
All our wraps fold over the front cover and are held securely in place by hidden magnets.
Besides being a wonderfully tactile addition, strap closures also protect the structure of the book.
Elastic band closures expand to fit your needs as you fill your journal over time.
Sometimes you just want to live without limits – and that’s why a selection of our journals offer no closure at all.
We take the durability of our products seriously and bind all our books using the sturdy yet incredibly flexible Smyth sewn technique. In the classic art of bookmaking, the sewing together of signatures (paper folded into groups of eight, sixteen or thirty-two pages) is seen as the heart of a well-made book, and we have followed this tradition in creating Paperblanks books.
Book edge printing, an often-overlooked element in modern bookmaking, was extremely popular during the mediæval period and is offered on a selection of our journals (including all Flexi notebooks).
Our accordion-style horizontal memento pouch stores your loose papers, ticket stubs and business cards without adding extra bulk to your book.
All Paperblanks journals feature at least one satin ribbon marker in a colour specifically selected to complement the cover design.
We are proud to give credit to the talented individuals and artistic movements that have inspired our designs. The back endpaper of every book contains credit and copyright information, as well as a fascinating historical background for the original artwork.
Inside every Paperblanks journal is our authentic laid paper in an eye-pleasing cream colour. The opacity of our journal pages ranges from 85 gsm to 120 gsm, depending on the format, and specific paper weight information can be found on the individual product pages.
Considering the environmental impacts of doing business is important to us. That’s why all of our paper is derived from sustainable forest pulp, our binder boards are made with 100% recycled materials and we use writing paper that is FSC-certified in all of our books.
