Badly Made Books

Sustainable Notebook A5 - Black Vines (Ruled)


These beautiful handmade notebooks are made by "Badly Made Books" in Cork from recycled materials such as coffee cups and food waste fibres. In this instance this notebook book is made from 80% recycled coffee cups!

Each book is 112 pages and A5 in size. This book is ruled with fluorescent pink ink.

The cover is hand embossed with a small 'Badly Made Books' logo and the finish of the books is wonderful with a secretarial pocked at the back of the book to save any additional notes. 

Each book is bound with tape so no waste is created from staples and is 100% recyclable. The method of tape-binding allows books to lay flat so that each page can be used fully.

Badly Made Books use a risograph stencil-duplicator to print notepaper with inks based on rice oils.

We are a HUGE fan of these amazing notebooks.
