The Explorer Notebook

Product Picture - Explorer Notebook The 'Explorer' notebook is designed to withstand the roughest of conditions, as recent trials in the Burmese jungles have confirmed. Its 136 pages are hand-sewn on linen tapes, the tan-coloured paper is water resistant and very difficult to tear, even when wet. Its tan leather cover has been specially developed by Harmatan and Oakridge Leathers of UK to resist both hot and cold conditions, and its closure mechanism is made with brass-plated steel rivets.  The Explorer measures 17.5 cms by 14 cms, big enough to take copious notes but small enough to fit neatly into a pouch, rucsac or bag.  

The Urban Explorer

An alternative design has been developed for the ‘urban jungle’. This is the same size as the Explorer but uses white water-resistant paper and is cased in a black calf leather case, also provided by Harmatan & Oakridge, with nickel-plated steel rivets.

The Marbled Notebook

Product picture - marbled notebook This notebook is a smart addition to any board-room or office, and is equally at home in the kitchen or on shopping expeditions.  Its pages are machine-sewn and quarter-bound in buckram with marbled paper sides. The buckram is top quality classic cloth, and the marbled paper is hand printed by the well-known and highly respected Jemma Lewis Marbling.  It measures 19.5 cms by 14.5 cms.

The charity produces these luxury books and stationery items for retail. All profits from the sales go directly to the charity to sustain further training. All manufacturing is conducted entirely by wounded, injured or sick Veterans although, if Veterans lack the training or practice required for certain techniques, the work is finished by the Project Manager, Jonathan Powell, himself also a Veteran and now a professional bookbinder.
