Badly Made Books mix both hand & machine making production processes and so these notebooks are rather well made... despite the name!
Why we love Badly Made Books
They are rubbish……. but in a good way. Badly Made Books use papers made from recycled fibres and post consumer waste, including used coffee cups, that's given a new life in your notebook. Notepaper is printed using a risograph duplicator - a printing method that uses inks made from by-products from rice production.
They are anything but badly made! The recycled tape binding means that their notebooks lie flat allowing you to comfortably write on both sides of the page.
They believe less is more. All Badly Made Books are printed, bound and shipped from their workshop in Cork City by founder Seán O’Sullivan and his team. Seán aims to use as little ink as possible to minimise the environmental impact of printing so imagery and designs are intentionally restrained and beautifully minimalist.
