  1. Great work. What is more difficult: making them or filling them? I know it takes longer to fill them.

    For a different approach and for smaller notebooks see the very clever ideas at (Sorry; on Preview it seems that I cannot add a URL. Try "pocketmod [dot] com".)

    Have Fun!

  2. Very neat. I love stationary of any sort, and something homemade is real special.

  3. I make my own note pads in my office monthy. Consistently there will be at least someone who screws up a large batch of photo-copying, or printing.

    Waste not, want not! I'm yet to investigate different ways of binding them though, but I think you have just inpsired me to be more creative!

  4. Great notebooks, and great topic. I ended up investing in one of those long-reach staplers. You take a standard 8-1/2x11 inch or European equivalent sheet of card stock, pile on a stack of plain paper, then long-reach staple the middle of the pack, crease and fold it along the staple line and viola - instant pamphlet sized writing books. Also is a good way for binding your own zine/rant screed prior to publishing at your favorite Marxist coffee shop.

    The binder post method is great, I've done a booklet of silver gelatin photographs this way, dry mounted to thick black paper sheets.
