I’ve turned a basic exercise book into a unique notebook, using a 1:1 cover print of a more than 40 year old dried plant specimen.

A design that brings two good things together: a handmade and unique look on the outside, and on the other hand a functional lined notebook on the inside, basic and ready to use.

About the series:
One day I discovered my mother’s old school notebook, a ring binder full of old school exercises from about 43 years ago. The plant specimens in the book were really stunning to me, so carefully conserved and cute, with the old pieces of tape that turned sepia. I scanned the best pages and made a series of paper goods out of it, using the images in full size. Check out my shop to see the other products in this series.

The original Dutch title of this plant specimen was “Dovenetel - gezaagd - met wortel”, that means "Lamium, or deadnettle - serrate - with root".

How I made it:
It’s a hardcover notebook made out of cardboard, a black linen back and a cover printed with a laser printer on high quality off-white drawing paper. It’s a bound, lined notebook with endpapers made out of nice matte coloured paper in a moss green tint.

Specifications of the inside notebook:
approx. 6.5 x 8.27 inch (16.5 x 21 cm)
40 pages
lined paper
