How my shop started

My shop "Hand Marbled Notebooks" came about as I had been making notebooks covered in marbled paper for several years and was only selling them on a regular market stall in my home town of Cambridge or at local events.

In 2020 I decided to look for another outlet for my books as Covid-19 had hit my regular outlets.

I mostly use marbled paper from Cockerell Marbled Papers to cover my books. These papers are well known for their clarity and were produced for over 100 years until closure of the studio in 2012. My brother started as an apprentice in the marbling studio and completed a seven year apprenticeship before being considered proficient enough to create the design himself. The papers were bought by bookbinders all over the world. They were also stocked by companies in America, Asia & Europe.
When the studio closed, my brother who was then the proprietor, gave me the remaining stock of Cockerell Papers to incorporate into my bookbinding business. These have proved to be very popular.

I have also learnt the art of paper marbling which is both fascinating and frustrating!
Our inclement weather means that there are days when you cannot get the colours to stick to the paper because of humidity or precipitation in the air. The colours won't behave as you would want them to either.
