April 1st 2023 marked a wonderful milestone for our lovely client, Guthrie & Ghani. Based in the vibrant neighbourhood of Moseley, Birmingham, they offer everything you’ll ever need to make your own lovely handmade clothes that you’ll love and treasure, with their one stop shop of dressmaking fabrics, patterns, kits and more.
Several different paper stocks and finishing options were explored for these bespoke notebooks. Fedrigoni Arena Smooth was picked for its quality and feel, properties that really allow the design of the pattern to leap off the page. The bee that features in the pattern was enlarged and picked out in gold foil on the cover of the books, and, for the ultimate finishing touch, we decided on Singer sewn spines to bind the books, a method that couldn’t be more appropriate for this project.
