Handmade Notebooks with Scientific Illustrations

Jellyfish handmade notebook by Ruth Bleakley

So depending on how often you glance at the left sidebar of my blog, you may or may not know that in addition to bookbinding, I am also a wedding invitation and stationery designer. Concertina Press specializes in unusual wedding invitations featuring antique scientific illustrations collected (in scanned form, not paper form!) from my time spent working at a scientific library just after college.

Not all of these illustrations make it onto wedding invites (although I do have pufferfish thank you notes) , so I’ve begun creating little notebooks to feature some of my favorite illustrations – click any of the pictures below (or above) if you’re interested in buying one – they’re for sale in my Etsy shop.
