The City Works Tokyo Notebook in Rust
The Tokyo Notebook by The City Works features a detailed illustration of the Japanese capital.
Each cover is hand-pressed in their studio in Austria, creating a highly detailed, embossed image of each city. Hand pressing is a traditional technique that sandwiches design onto paper, thus leaving a lasting impression on the cover, and hopefully on you too! The spine of the book is also embossed with the name of the city, and The City Works logo on the reverse.
Each notebook has 128 plain inside pages, are sewn together and bound together in the Netherlands using OTA-binding. This method is stronger, uses little glue, and allows the notebook to lay totally flat while using it. This maximises your creative area, while making your notebook last even longer.
When you receive your Tokyo notebook, it will be strapped in a frosted-paper bellyband, complete with a set of four line guides: Ruled, Gridded, Dotted and Hello World (a fun template for drawing landmarks or colouring in). They’re bold, simple, sturdy, and slot perfectly into the spine of the notebook. Simply place a line guide underneath a page and you're good to go!
