Every edition of Dapper Notes notebooks is a one-time deal. I create a new design in a limited amount, and once it sells out I don't make more. One cover material however came back into the shop several times.
A cork-cover was originally used for the very first notebooks I ever sold, dubbed Pinot Gwar and Corkcupine. Later on I used cork again for the 2018 Summer of Sketching edition, and eventually made mini and junior-sized versions. Over the years I also created new batches of Pinot Gwar whenever people asked for more.
Starting today, I'm re-introducing a cork notebook as the first-ever permanent edition. Giant Heart uses the same cover material as the very first Dapper Notes, and is designed to echo the original notebooks. Inside you'll find a thin crimson endsheet, which was my material of choice for endsheets for the first years of Dapper Notes. I intend to keep on making these as long as the cork cover material remains available.
Fray level: None
Most Dapper Notes covers are made using fabric, which naturally frays with use. Each material behaves differently, and this meter will help you gauge how much fraying to expect from your notebook. Read more about fabric covers

Back to the start
Cork is a natural material that makes for a tactile and extremely durable notebook cover. Over the years it has been the most requested material for making a comeback, and from what I hear is very enjoyable to handle.
Can you pinpoint what inspires you to write, to doodle, to journal your everyday? No matter the source, your Dapper Notes was made with extra care for all the little details, and is ready for you to capture life!
Every Dapper Notes notebook is made by hand, from scratch using a variety of materials including: a fabric cover that's bound to bookcloth, a decorative end-sheet, all sewn with waxed thread. Watch this video to see how they're made, step by step.
Dapper Notes notebooks are
Every notebook cover is made from two materials: a good looking fabric on the outside backed by book cloth inside.

Dapper Notes are the best quality pocket sized notebooks you can get. The textile cover and thread binding means the books will hold up through time. I love the thick paper as well; good for fountain pens.Cindy
