The art of bookbinding

There are several things that I’m addicted to, for example to notebooks. I already have some sort of a collection at home. And even if I don’t always really have use for them, I can’t help myself but to snatch the ones that caught my eye on many occasions. No limitations are set in my choices, it can really go from a classic moleskine to handcrafted ones. There is only two criteria that are important to me: the design and the quality of the paper.

Because I’m also a coffee-addict, I was immediately attracted by a this brilliant design inspired  by our beloved beans! The notebook cover is made out of used coffee bags collected from all over the world. Mine comes from Japan (yay!).

The booklet itself is pure bookbinding beauty. It’s well-thought and personal, with many sections to fill in with personal thoughts.
Booklets are all hand-stitched together. The stitches are covered with beautiful masking tape patterns. A stamped coffee drip filter is placed as a separator of some sort.  To be honest, each notebook was given the same level of attention and finish: it was hard to pick one!

Kate is behind all these creations, follow her on Instagram to see more from her sharing about coffee bags, beans and more. Or just go to Gallery Drip Coffee at Thailand Art and Culture Centre, maybe she’s be around and will explain to you what her inspirations come from.

{Gallery Drip Coffee has also great coffee and other findings for all coffee lovers as well! More from them in another post!}
