This is a Coptic bound notebook. This type of binding allows the book to open completely flat and stay that way, making it easy to write in. Covered with lovely light blue linen and an old fashioned lock is Gocco printed on the front cover. 96 off-white pages sewn with waxed natural linen thread. Perfect for little notes or sketches. At some stage a locked diary seems like overreacting. These books give others a kind and symbolic notice of minding their own business.

- 4.1"x4.1"x0.8" / 10,3x10,3x2cm

- originally 27€, now 20€

Master bookbinder quality, hand made with great attention to detail.


This type of binding was first used by early Christians, the Copts (hence the name), in the first centuries AD. It is the first known codex style binding, a book that consists of folded sheets of paper bound together instead of, for example, simple loose sheets or of paper (or papyrus or parchment) rolled into a scroll. This binding technique isn’t just a quirky old way of making books – many modern bookbinding machines imitate this ingenious way of linking pages together – but a wonderful piece of living history.

Please note that due to differences in monitors your book may differ slightly in color from what you see on your screen. I do my absolute best to represent the colors as accurately as possible.
