Books made by hand.

The Books

Durable. Flexible. Customizable. Reused material whenever possible. Useful and beautiful. Made by hand.

The Passport

Lists help. We make them to keep our lives together. They make order out of chaos and productivity out of lethargy. We make them in order to destroy them. Cross things off. Move forward.

The Designer

You have ideas. They come when you least expect them. The moment before you fall asleep. On a train in the middle of nowhere. During a meeting when you're supposed to be paying attention. They are your best ideas and you can't lose them.

The Artist

Follow-through is a rare thing. The time. The patience. The energy devoted to finishing what you've started. It takes effort, but that doesn't go unnoticed. You earn something and you get a little stronger. Your tool set gets a little bigger. Your confidence grows.

Variety

Colors. Materials. Lined, blank, or graph paper. Stitching. The details make the difference.

Mail Order

Order any book and we'll mail it right to your home or store.

About


StudioWe make books. We make books by hand. One-by-one. We focus on the details. We cut the paper. We stitch the binding. We glue the covers. We trim the corners. We source our materials locally whenever possible. We use deadstock. Leftovers. The stuff that others throw away without thinking. We do all of this because we think craft matters. Quality matters. The details matter. Where stuff comes from matters. And in the end it makes a better product. Something with a story. A built-in history. Personality. A book you can be proud to own. A book we made by hand.
