The Bookblock Editions collection will feature four unique designs from Supermundane, Rob Flowers, Annu Kilpeläinen, David Doran, Ben O’Brien, Marylou Faure, Maggie Chiang, Thomas Hedger, Alec Dohery, Martina Paukova, Claudine O’Sullivan and Kristen Boydstun.
The dynamic range showcases an array of colourful designs ranging from expressive hand-drawn animal studies and fantastical watercolour landscapes to graphical geometric patterns and vector cityscapes – all digitally printed on Bookblock’s soft touch covers. Each of the notebooks is created in the illustrators’ own distinctive style, with an array of different page designs, making them collectables for illustration fans and must-have accessories for stationery lovers on the hunt for something different.
Since 2013, Bookblock has been making premium custom notebooks and leather accessories of the highest quality for brands and agencies. With a goal to further develop their customisation offering and product range, whilst introducing traditional bookbinding methods to their processes, Bookblock merged with one of the UK’s oldest bookbinders in 2015.
With this merge came the opportunity to experiment, and Bookblock was able to develop an ambition to offer high quality printed notebooks in small batch quantities.
Making use of their ties to the creative community, Bookblock worked with a range of illustrators to test out the service. But as word spread about the notebooks these illustrators were creating, interest poured in and it became clear that these illustrated notebooks were both beautiful and sought after. And with that Bookblock Editions was born.
