Elephant Notebook with vintage playing card cover A6 size

Description

Vintage playing cards are little works of art and far too lovely to languish in a drawer, forgotten. So, I have given these beautifully illustrated cards a new lease of life, proudly displaying them on the covers of little notebooks.

The notebooks are A6 in size, so perfect for popping in a bag, so you can make lists or sketches when inspiration strikes. The 32 pages, 16 sheets, are plain 150gsm finest recycled cartridge paper. The back page has been embossed with my Hilltop Bindery stamp, so you know it's a genuine Hilltop Bindery product.

I have lots of playing cards, but all from incomplete decks, so rest assured no full sets have been broken to create these notebooks.

If you're looking for an elephant playing the piano, or a monkey playing on a slide, I can help! I also have bakers, scooter riders, fishermen, teachers, policemen, drummers, saxophone players, cellists... I have cards with names on too; Katie the Cat, Peter the Penguin... I'm sure you get the idea! The final picture shows examples of some of the cards I have.

If you need a little gift for someone with a particular interest, name or profession, just convo me and I'll see if I have a suitable card for your notebook cover. The final picture show some examples of playing cards I have, but I also have many more!

These notebooks make lovely inexpensive little gifts to pop inside birthday cards, or Christmas stockings.

Please note that the playing cards I use are pre-loved, so may have signs of this. That's how you'll know these really are vintage cards. Please also note that I have not bound these notebooks myself, but I have upcycled them.

Your notebook will be beautifully presented, wrapped in twine, with a little pencil, just like the one in the photo.

This listing is for one notebook and one half size pencil.

Please note that monitors do vary, so while my photos look true-to-life to me, they may look different on your monitor, and there's nothing either of us can do about that! No-one has ever returned a book to me, but should you want to, that's ok.
