The cover is hand illustrated, and then printed in Adelaide by Eagle Press Printing on 100% recycled 220gsm Keaycolour stock. The pages are 100% recycled Envirocare 70gsm stock which means we could insert 25 leaves, to give you maximum (50 pages) drawing and writing space in each book. The A5 notebook is hand-bound (by us) with 100% cotton thread. 100% environmentally responsible, means that the pages can be recycled (again!) and the thread is biodegradable. The cover will wear slightly with age, but the nature of the construction of the paper means it becomes even more beautiful, the older it gets.
