The perfect bookish gift, our print-themed canvas tote bag paired with a large notebook bound in maroon cloth.
The Canvas Tote Bag
Our gorgeous bag, with stout, non-slippery straps that fit snugly over the shoulder, is elegant and unusually capacious. Made from attractive natural cream canvas with duck-egg blue trim, it’s exceptionally strong but light and folds easily. It has an inner pocket, a magnetic fastener to keep your purchases safe, and – most important of all – a generous gusset. Both sides are printed with a specially commissioned print-themed design by one of our favourite cover artists, James B. W. Lewis, so it can be worn either way.
A good sturdy notebook – the kind you’re not going to lose – is surely one of life’s essentials; a place for those vital to-do lists, a repository for Great Thoughts, memorable quotes, notes of books borrowed and lent, important addresses, other people’s recipes –its uses are endless. As a record, too, a notebook is every bit as immediate as a diary – a patchwork of everyday life that, years later, can vividly bring back the essence of a particular moment.
Just like the Slightly Foxed Editions, the Slightly Foxed Notebook is bound in cloth and comes complete with coloured endpapers, silk head- and tailband and ribbon marker. It makes a perfect present – and once you’ve seen it you’ll probably want to buy one for yourself.
