I was contacted by Hridesh because he wanted to send a gift to someone special for Rakhi. He wanted me to create a notebook for her, inspired by the concept of birds and nest.
I decided to create a set of 3 notebooks which can be strapped within a strong cover made of chipboard. The straps are elastic bands with colours that match the overall theme of the set. I painted the entire cover with light watercolours and sketched images of birds and birdhouse. Upon request, I also added brush lettered name ‘Sini’ for whom the gift the intended.
The notebooks contain blank pages which are 120 gsm thick, and their edges have been distressed to give them a more handmade appearance. Each of the notebook has a cover of 300 gsm, and bears a hand sketched and painted illustration of a birdhouse.
The cover carries a proper elastic ribbon which is attached with the help of a metal buckle on the front.
This whole notebook set has been customised so that the person using it can relate to it and enjoy writing in it. The notebooks can be easily slid in and out of the cover for use.
I love creating customised notebooks for any occasion or purpose, so please feel free to drop me a message if you are interested.Comment >>
Jayanti wanted a notebook for herself, with some decorations on the cover that relates to music and flowers. She also wanted a timepiece. I decided to use Chipboard pieces (that I cut using my machine) to create a foliage of branches and flowers, with two birds sitting on top right in front of the clock.
This notebook cover can be easily taken out and slipped on as per the convenience of the writer. The notebook is handmade, and the pages are of 100 gsm weight and high-quality with a slightly lined texture on them. The notebook contains 50 pages of A5 size. I sent Jayanti a sample of different types of papers, and I used the one she chose.
This entire piece has been completely customised so that the writer can relate to it on a personal level. If you want me to make a customised notebook for you, please contact me .Comment >>
Deboleena Rakshit wanted a customised planner which she could use for her work meetings. As per her requirements, I designed 3 different layouts for 3 different notebooks. Designed layouts focus on the meeting details, contact information and the lists of things that she needs to do.
Moreover, I have provided unique stickers as well, which she can use to make the content more interactive. One designed sticker can show which content is more important than others. Other stickers are meant to denote travel, ideas and “to-do” tasks.
The notebooks are hand stitched and made from high quality imported paper. I also keep papers of different qualities in stock, and I send samples to my clients beforehand so that they can decide which paper they will need.
The leatherette cover is also imported and highly durable. It can be used for a long time, which means that you can buy new notebooks and slip them inside the cover when you are done with the current ones. The cover is hand stitched on all sides to create a nice visual interest.
Price: Rs. 2200 (India)/ $40 (World) including delivery charge as the starting price. The price can increase depending on the customised work that the client may require). If you are interested, please contact me.Comment >>
