About

Welcome to the Marbled Bee, where each notebook is a work of art.

Every marbled bee is handcrafted and marbled by me. A lot of joy and a little bit of magic go into each one. I am grateful that I can share them with you.

Frequently asked questions
SIZES:

I now offer the following sizes Micro, Passport, Pocket, A6, Personal, B6, Standard, Wide, A5 and Composition.

New* Sizes have been adjusted across the board for a more standard fit. All new notebooks will have less overhang and a more flush fit. Every Bee can happily hold up to 6 inserts plus dashboards and pockets (about 1.5 inches worth of inserts). The biggest changes were to the Micro, Passport and Personal, which were all too large and had too much overhang. In addition, the A5 has been sized down to hold 1.5 inches worth of inserts….where she could previously hold 2.

There is no longer a B6 slim.

NOTES ON LEATHER:

I now have two leather options, standard and workhorse. Standard is a 4 oz veg tan leather that is thin, lightweight and flexible. It measures 1.8 to 2 mm in thickness.

My newest leather is workhorse. Workhorse leather is a 7 oz veg tan leather that is thick, flexible and sturdy. It measures right at or just over 3 mm in thickness. You might be saying to yourself well that’s not much, it can’t make that big of difference. But I assure you, it does. Hard on your notebooks? Want a notebook that feels great in your hands? Workhorse is the one for you.

NOTES ON THE MARBLING PROCESS:

Marbling is an art form that consists of placing colors on a bath and then creating patterns with a variety of tools, rakes and combs. Of course, it's as simple as that and yet more complicated. Different materials yield different results. Over time, a marbler develops their own style and way of working. Experienced marblers can often identify another artists work. This is known as "the hand of the marbler".
