This hard-back journal features an original marbled paper on its covers. All our marbled papers and books are carefully handmade in our south London studio.
The paper for this book was marbled with an Abalone colourway, available in the indicated patterns below. Lucy McGrath, founder of Marmor Paperie, drew inspiration for this colourway from iridescent abalone shells; deep teals, delicate greens and electric pinks are accented with glittering gold veins.
Make your book perfect for you by choosing your preferred pattern, size and inside pages.
You can also personalise your book by adding an engraved monogram or name. Names or initials are stamped manually in gold foil onto the centre of the front cover, and our Maker Mark is foiled on the reverse.
We use acrylic paint for its durability and brightness. The paint won’t rub off or dissolve but, because we don't use mass-manufacturing treatments, the papers are not coated. We recommend keeping them away from water where possible to avoid warping or bubbling.
