Paperblanks is one of my favorite places to go for not only gifts, but also address books and day planners too! They are the perfect combination of beauty and functionality!
This catalogue includes two new collections – Nocturnelle, with designs that reproduce the 1892 French book cover “The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore,” and Ori, with covers inspired by the works of Japanese artist Yuko Nishimura — as well as a new Laurel Burch series and new additions to existing collections French Ornate and Laurel Burch Playful Creations.
Inspired by the works of visionaries, rebels and artists across the ages, Paperblanks products embody a true story behind every design. With most designs taking years to license and develop, each Paperblanks product draws a connection to global art and culture that users can see and feel in each and every book.
New Collection: Nocturnelle
Our reproduction of an antique French binding is based on a cover designed in 1829 by publishers A. & W. Galignani for “The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore.” The cover suggests the fine Moroccan leather that was revered by discerning bibliophiles, and the decorations mirror architectural trends of the time such as rosettes, spirals and stylized leaves.
New Collection: Ori
The exquisite Ori collection features the work of Artist Yuko Nishimura and celebrates the ties between art, culture and everyday life in Japan. From the simple fold, we are reminded of the unending story of human ingenuity. Artist Yuko uses folded curves and straight lines suggesting formal structure and creative impulse. While minimal, each of the four Ori designs – Arroyo, Cadence, Ripple and Dune – are breathtakingly sophisticated.

Both the address book and the day planner are breathtakingly gorgeous. They are of the highest quality in construction and craftmanship. The address book has solid metal closures and a very useful memento pouch hidden inside the back cover.
The day planner comes with two ribbon markers and a smaller address book you can take out and slip into the next year’s planner.
Paperblanks uses Smythe Sewn binding so when the books are open, it is easy as possible to write. The paper is thick and the various pens I used did not bleed through. It is also derived from sustainable sources.
Paperblanks offers over 300 elegant designs. You can purchase products online and in more than 2,000 bookstores, museums and stationary shops in North America alone. Suggested retail pricing for all designs ranges from $6.99 to $29.95.
