Refillable leather notebook styled after the Nag Hammadi codices.
The Nag Hammadi library is a collection of Gnostic texts, discovered near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945 and dating to the 3rd century.
This modern notebook is based on the original codices but updated using modern bookbinding techniques for the modern user on the go.
The side ties, originally used to help keep the book closed, are perfect for keeping loose pages and ephemera safe inside your book while travelling, and have been made long to allow for expansion. Filled with good quality heavy cartridge paper, for sketching or writing, the notebook is also designed to be re-used and refilled with new paper.
The notebook is roughly 16cm x 11cm x 1.2cm. Includes instructions for refilling your notebook.
