I’m really excited tell you about an incredible notebook company that I recently found called “The Stamford Notebook Co“. They’re based in Stamford, England, and make some of the highest quality, handmade notebooks/journals and diaries that I have ever seen. Every book is handmade to perfection and the level of love and workmanship poured into every book can easily be felt. The very nice people of at “The Stamford Notebook Co” kindly sent me two of there notebooks to review.
The first notebook is from the “The Elements Of Nature” range. It’s a hardback, A5 in size and nice and chunky. Visually this book is stunning, it is vibrant in colour (it also comes in other colours) and has a beautiful cotton/linen cover and marker ribbon, which really adds a feeling of quality and luxury. The book is also very eco friendly, which is a real bonus, with…
With regards to the paper within the book…Wow! It’s amazing, the one I received came in plain, but it also comes in ruled. The paper is made to an insanely high standard, feels nice to the touch, fountain pen friendly and had no bleed through when I used it. I honestly love this notebook and would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a really nice notebook or even to give as a gift to someone.
The second notebook is the “Calm and classic woven cloth notebook” this is also A5 in size and boasts a wide array of colour choices and page styles (dot, ruled, blank, grid). This book like the one above is truely stunning, made with the same quality paper and beautiful woven cloth cover, this one also comes with a really nice contrasting elastic closure and ribbon page marker. The thing that makes this book really stand out is the embossed text, the people over at “The Stamford Notebook Co.” kindly embossed my initials to the notebook to make it truely personal. I thought that this was a really nice touch, and made an already amazing notebook that bit more special. This embossing can be added to any of the notebooks/journals/diaries in their range.
These notebooks are honestly two of the finest I’ve ever seen and used. The high quality workmanship of them and the fact they are handmade make them truly exceptional. I would highly recommend their products to anyone, be it for yourself or as a gift to someone.
