Fully Layflat Binding with thread-sewn pages (16mm depth)

    This notebook brings the popular Brighton Birds pattern to a new type of notebook for Holchester Designs.  Replacing the previous B5 version, this A5 version has a layflat binding, meaning you can effortlessly open it out flat without damaging the spine. 

    The Brighton Birds artwork is inspired by the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.  Close to where I grew up, and with beautifully overwhelming interiors filled with colour and pattern, I still remember being in awe of on school art trips. 

    All the motifs you see are originally hand-drawn and watercolour painted, before being turned into a digital chinoiserie-style pattern and then tweaked to feature on this stylish stationery set of notebooks, notepads and bookmarks. 

    The cover of this notebooks is a 250gsm FSC-approved card, which gives protection to the 100gsm off-white pages inside but without too much bulk.  The inside of the cover is the same pink as the outside, just without the pattern, and the first page has a monochrome version of the cover with a large circle ready for key information, and to help take away any first-page nerves the owner might have.  

    The rest of the inside pages all have a faint grey dot 5mm apart as well as unobtrusive page numbers in the same colour in the bottom corners, included with planner and bullet journal lovers in mind. The binding is lay-flat or OTA-binding if you want the technical term.  It's similar to what is used on music scores so the orchestras music will stay flat whilst they're playing, and the same threads-sewn techniques have been applied to these notebooks, just on a smaller scale. 

    These notebooks are printed here in the UK by an family-run independent business which specialises in this technique.  They also ensure sustainability within their processes, are FSC certified and they are carbon balanced printers.

    Each notebook comes wrapped with a recycled paper belly band, and in some cases will also be wrapped in a biodegradable cellophane wrap to protect it which makes it a planet-friendly stationery gift too!  

    Notebooks like these really are a great colourful gift for stationery lovers, and why not build it in to a beautiful stationery set with the addition of a double sided bookmark and a notepad - whether in the same pattern or an alternative - creating an elegant, thoughtful and practical gift set sourced entirely from independent U.K. businesses.

    Helpful things to know:

    For a paper comparison Leuchtturm notebooks tend to be 80-100gsm, and standard printer paper is usually 70-80gsm.

    FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council, which promotes responsible forestry and, arguably better than just recycled paper, FSC-Certified paper confirms that the paper used is both recyclable in its own right and has originally come from a sustainable source committed to responsible forestry practices.
