Perforated Notes

Following on from my late-2018 prototype, I’ve taken the book of “perforated notes” forward to the next level.

Yesterday afternoon I set and printed some covers (Perforated Notes in Tourist Gothic 36 pt., using the alternate capital N, and the credit in Gill Sans 18 pt.) on 4” x 4¼” brown card stock, and cut, folded, and perforated white 20 lb. paper to the same size.

This morning I bound the first copy, punching four holes through the covers and signatures, and then binding them with green cord using a Japanese style stab-binding:

Here’s what the finished notebook looks like:

Copy number one goes to Katherine Burnett, who expressed interest in having one all her own.

That's a nice project and a good looking binding. I checked out the earlier post to see how you perforated the pages.
