The Explorer Notebook

explorer-notebookThe ‘Explorer’ notebook is designed to withstand the roughest of conditions, as recent trials in the Burmese jungles have confirmed. Its 136 pages are hand-sewn on linen tapes, the tan-coloured paper is water resistant and very difficult to tear, even when wet. Its tan leather cover has been specially developed by Harmatan and Oakridge Leathers of UK to resist both hot and cold conditions, and its closure mechanism is made with brass-plated steel rivets.  The Explorer measures 17.5 cms by 14 cms, big enough to take copious notes but small enough to fit neatly into a pouch, rucksack or bag.

The Urban Explorer

charlottess-urban-explorerAn alternative design, the ‘Urban Explorer’ has been developed for the ‘urban jungle’. This is made to the same size and toughness as the tan Explorer but uses white water-resistant paper and is cased in a black calf leather case, also provided by Harmatan & Oakridge, with nickel-plated steel rivets.

These notebooks are all made in our workshop by the Veterans themselves although, if they lack the practice required for certain techniques, the work is finished by the Project Manager, Jonathan Powell, himself also a Veteran and now a professional bookbinder.

The Marbled Notebook

This notebook is a smart addition to any boardroom or office, and is equally at home in the kitchen or on shopping expeditions.  Its pages are machine-sewn and quar20151214-marbled-notebookster-bound in buckram with marbled paper sides. The buckram is top quality classic cloth, and the decorated paper sides are hand marbled.  It measures 19.5 cms by 14.5 cms.
