Everywhere, beautiful piece of paper are accumulated, forgotten, damaged. Marbled, lined, silkscreen printed, old catalogues, schoolbooks, illustrated documents, found in ruins, goldmines, in France, Morocco or India; in wastelands or old printinghouses stocks.The "Manufacture du Paon" takes care of using this raw and trivial material and giving them a second life.
Only 200 notebooks are made as we choose to produce little but well. Every notebook is unique, handmade in France.The 88 pages are bound inside a coated and painted cotton cover. Little gems - some of them have spanned the 20th century- that are sorted , arranged and assembled together. It is a true composition of textures, prints and colours, a notebook that carries a memory, a history that is still to be continued.
