120 x 165 mm 

Book with 240 sides of plain 110 gsm ivory paper.


Commonplace Books are a very purposeful way of using a journal, or giving one as a gift. They have been used since the Fifteenth Century, the idea being to record passages of text, poems, quotations, recipes, reading lists, drawings, sayings, family turns of phrase, calligraphy, aspirations  - any words of perceived wisdom or personal significance -  all making up a memoir of the author’s interests over a number of years. All sorts of famous people have kept Commonplace Books including John Milton, Napoleon Bonaparte, Lewis Carroll and Virginia Woolf.  A brief note about the history and use of Commonplace Books is enclosed with the book. 


The covers are a fine hand-marbled paper by Regina St John, of Chena River Marblers in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA  

While I may have other books with similar marbled papers, each one is an individual piece and no two are the same.
