A fish said to another fish, “Above this sea of ours there is another sea, with creatures swimmming in it—and they live there even as we live here.”

The fish replied, “Pure fancy! Pure fancy! When you know that everything that leaves our sea by even an inch, and stays out of it, dies. What proof have you of other lives in other seas?” - Khalil Gibran

lay-flat design

badly made books ...are rubbish

our favourite ingredient is waste so we choose to use papers made from recycled and post-consumer waste materials.

paper fibres can be found in many industrial by-products and other waste products including coffee cups. by using recycled materials we hope to reduce the stress already placed on global forestry.

we choose to print our notepaper using a risograph duplicator; a method of printing that uses inks made from rice production by-products

our papers

handmade with machines

we started making books (badly, at first) with a good idea and little know-how. through a process of trial and error we refined our design eventually becoming producers of basic tools for writers, doodlers, list makers, scribblers and anyone who wants to collect their thoughts & ideas

our workshop combines new and old techniques, mixing hand and machine process to offer craft standards at an industrial pace - always with a focus on getting the most out of good materials

our story

printing with restraint

paper is a fully recyclable material however the infrastructure required to print is unavoidably plastic-based and wasteful.

we aim to use as little ink as possible. we design & choose imagery under the principle, that today more than ever, less is more.

we do all of our printing, binding and distribution from our city centre workshop at 1 friar st.
