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.

Would recommend ordering from Anderson Pens!

This is my third Paperblanks journal but my first time ordering from Anderson Pens. Paperblanks journals never disappoint. They're definitely pricey but the quality of the book is different to any other journal brand I've had and they're always so so beautiful. This one is no different.

I woke up this morning to find the package had been delivered the night before and was under a pile of snow. When I went to open the cardboard package (which was wet) inside was a smaller second priority mail cardboard box inside and then inside that was a bundle of paper which was wrapped around a bundle of bubble wrap which was wrapped around the Paperblanks book. The book was completely dry and protected. Even the paper receipt was dry! Impressive service from Anderson Pens. THANK YOU!!!

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.
