Have we met before?

badly made books are made from post consumer waste; paper fibres are extracted from used consumer items (mostly coffee cups) & recycled into notepaper. Recycled & recyclable; leave those trees alone. 


all badly made books are "badly bound" with staples, tape & elbow grease, they're not perfect but they do the job.


This is a handmade item, subtle variations will occur, please embrace them even if they're different.
