The Paperblanks Nova Stella Solis Journal in the Ultra size is 7 x 9 inches and Smyth Sewn for durability. It has 144 lined pages, includes a memento pouch, and ribbon marker and features an elastic closure.

If you are celestially minded or a lover of dark light, these ethereal journals are sure to inspire and enchant. With their central star shape, Nox, Astra and Solis exert an emotional pull akin to the North Star for night time wayfarers. For those inclined to contemplate the cosmos, look no further than our Nova Stella series.

Paperblanks' Nova Stella covers come from the 1789 binding of Missale Sacri Ordinis Praedicatorum, printed during the Settecento period by Octavio Puccinelli publishers. During this time bookbinding became at once simpler and yet more complex. The sewing was done on recessed cords to give the spines a smooth appearance and so, while the structure of books was uncomplicated, decoration became increasingly elaborate.
The free space around the central object is as important as the ornamentation that surrounds it, just as deep space is part of what makes stars so inspiring. Here we see brocade with flowers and heart shapes, gilt-edged, broad string iron lines, single punch gilding and a cross with flowers and initials.
Let this journal guide your imagination into a universe of possibilities.

Paperblanks Ultra Journal

I was introduced to Paperblanks when you mentioned them on your weekly video blog. I ordered a Ultra 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.
