Giving broken-down Canadian books new life, this Ontario artisan creates beautiful journals. In this case, books from the classic Hardy Boys series are turned into one-of-a-kind notebooks. Elements of the old favourites, including covers, pictures and pages, are given places of note in each of these special handmade books, perfect as a sketchbook or journal, and made using the centuries-old technique of coptic binding. Durable Irish linen thread binds 80 blank pages of 70lb acid-free text paper into this unusual book and allows it to lay flat when open. Each one is a truly unique and authentic gift.
The Artist/Designer: All things books. That is Hannelore’s self-proclamation of her life in a nutshell. Or bookcase. She has studied them, written them, edited them, and helped illustrate them. Now she makes them by hand using elegant coptic binding and hand-ripping every single page to give it a luxurious deckle edge. “ I make these durable, beautiful, and practical vessels for you to be inspired by and to capture your own story.” Hannelore’s books are carried across Canada from Newfoundland to British Columbia and Cedar Lake is pleased to offer them to you.
