Our story

We take people on creative journeys, unfolding stories, making books and empowering meaningful change.

Drawing inspiration from the beauty of paper, the familiarity of a well-thumbed story, shorelines, flea markets and the excitement of cities, we believe that everyone has a book inside them. We invite you to come and make books with us.

Experienced, enthusiastic and thoughtful, we give you a different perspective on travel. By engaging creatively with particularly inspiring places, we’ll help you to document your discoveries in hand-bound books.

“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.”

Pico Iyer

Taking creative journeys doesn’t always mean leaving home.

Our e-courses are designed to let your creativity flourish, taking inspiration from the resources around you; seeing the familiar in fresh ways and bringing playfulness into your life.

All our courses are packed with projects, inspiration and ideas to keep you making long after they have finished. Connect with an international group of passionate creatives, who love stationery, bookshops and words just as much as you.
