There are few materials in human civilization more widely useful than iron and twine. Here, Paperblanks embraces the metaphoric and literal design possibilities of these two workhorse materials – iron that can be formed into indestructible objects of all sorts, and twine that can be used to bind everything from rafts to fences.

Paperblanks' Iron & Twine covers reproduce the binding of a prayer book belonging to the Archbishop Clemens August of Cologne. The prayers were written by Maria Joseph Clement Kaukol and the bound copies were given as gifts to the Archbishop's friends, presumably to strengthen ties of friendship.

The original version, created in Cologne in 1729, was called Treasure of Selected Prayers for the Christian Soul. The cover showcased broad string iron lines, green and gold stripes and golden leaf pistils. The interior contents were an extraordinary example of German calligraphy and engravings.

Whether you want to bind someone's gratitude and affection permanently or temporarily, consider using a journal celebrating iron and twine.

Paperblanks midi note book

I was introduced to Paperblanks when you mentioned them on your weekly video blog. I ordered a medium notebook. When I opened the order, I was blown away. I loved the Indian vibe of the cover design. I’ve already had people ask me where I got it from. The paper inside is perfect for everyday use. Smooth enough and rough enough for a fountain pen. I’ve not had any problems with feathering or bleed through. Paperblanks are truly unappreciated. I can recommend this note book without hesitation.
