Tympan notebook - letterpress printed cover
Materials: letterpress, tympan, frosted mylar, wax paper
Blank notebook of 10 sheets (40 pages) with a used tympan for the cover. Because the tympan is oiled, wax paper is used as the endsheet, and frosted mylar is used for the outer cover which has been letterpress printed with handset type. Each tympan is completely unique and was carefully selected and cut to be aesthetically pleasing. Notebooks measure 3" x 5" and are saddle-stitched with 2 staples.
A tympan is an oiled sheet of paper used in letterpress printing. The initial print is often made on the tympan to guide where the unprinted paper should be placed. The tympans are reused several times and show pencil marks and cuts.
A portion of the sale of this notebook will go to support the letterpress studio at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, where I teach.

I am a repeat customer! This is the third time I have purchased these notebooks. (I usually buy 2-3 at a time) They are a great size and I love the quality and weight of the paper! I use mine as a daily, carry it around all the time, notebook. Thank you!
My order JUST arrived- way earlier than I expected! It's Monday and I ordered on Friday! <3 there was a hand-written thank you inside that made my day :-) the paper is smooth and perfectly printed, not to mention the small details make me extra excited to write a letter. Thank you!
I'm in LOVE with these notepads - Lisa was so quick to ship, fixed an error in my order without me ever having to reach out, AND they came beautifully packaged. These are going to be great for every day notes or an aesthetically pleasing addition to a letter. Exactly what I was looking for!!
This is my go-to notebook. I start a new one every year and have quite a stack. The quality is unmatched - the paper is thick enough to use fun pens!
