Aspiring writers, artists, musicians and pencil users around the world will be able to purchase these high end notebooks that were tastefully designed to combine modern technology, premium materials and traditional artisanship, perfected by generations of Turkish printers and book binders. Some items are available in limited quantities only.

    Oooh — I can’t wait! They look really nifty. I’m especially interested in the Blackwing folio — I am taking a lot of notes in my new job, and the little elastic holder in my pretty leather folio is too big for pencils. I can’t wait for one that will fit my PB602s!

    Thanks Andy. The container arrived this morning. We’re out in the warehouse today getting everything organized, doing incomming inspections and receiving into inventory, etc.. Perhaps some photos to follow on Pencils Pages and Twitter later in the day. Fun stuff.

      Sure Marc. Thanks for your interest. All the papers used in our notebooks are sourced from European producers in Spain or Italy. All are acid free with a nice ivory tone. Paper stock weights vary from item to item throughout our range. These will be provided on the individuaa product pages on the store. Also the packaging labels for all our CRS range products will note this information as well so our customers have this information available as we build our retail distribution.

    Just received Palomino Luxury Sketchbook & Folio cover. Beautiful all the way round. Can keep my pencils and sharpener in one place. A writer by trade, I don’t use unlined paper. Will you have Lined Block Replacements available anytime soon?
