NOTEBOOK CRAFT – NOTES
The journey of Tessicanapa and Officine Amaro continues to discover the magic of the encounter between paper and ancient hemp: the end result is the Notes collection.
This small series of creations, consists of notebooks in two different patterns and a bookmark. The A6 notebook in wallpaper at the end of the series, is composed of more than forty pages in ecological paper and recycled sewn in Singer stitch, trimmed with manual paper cutter with rounded corners by a notcher of 1800. The cover is flexible with a pleasant texture to the touch: the Leaf version faithfully reproduces the texture of a leaf; the Line version is characterized by geometric patterns. The bookmark is composed by the combination of antique hemp fabric and precious scraps of recycled paper Materica Fedrigoni. The contrast between the texture of the fabric and the body of recycled paper is softened by their soft tones.

NOTEBOOK WITH COVER IN ANTIQUE HEMP
From the collaboration with Officine Amaro “Calendula”, a small notebook made in limited edition was born. On the cover, in ancient Italian hemp, a stylized calendula is represented, printed in monochromatic linocut with recycled PVC matrix (by means of a chalcographic press).
The notebook is completely created by hand: the seam is a Singer stitch made by an industrial machine of the 70s, the trim is obtained through a flywheel paper cutter, the rounded corners is made by a notching machine of the early 1800s. The completion was made with the use of a press by binders shot of the early ‘900.
Past and present, charm and wonder, creativity and craftsmanship meet between the white pages of this little treasure, ready to welcome words and traits of dreams, ideas, projects and adventures.
