Steampunk? See you at The Asylum!
Notebooks bashed by time; notebooks for your (travelling) bookcase; notebooks for pockets, waistcoats, strapping to your thigh, fastening to your boot, hitching to the camel (airship & steam-powered vehiculator); notebooks with secret pockets for the codes you're transporting to the Calculating Engine; notebooks for drawing, sketchmaking, ticket collecting, surveillance duties, and all general memorandering. It's a way of life.
made with love and a fleeting glimpse into your soul by the bookbinder.
