The ‘Nocturne’ album, for a quiet afternoon


The newest offering from the Sago bindery is dedicated to my fella.
He is hard-working, dedicated to his trade, and devoted to his family. His taste in things is classic, but robust.  He would rather go without and wait to find that special something made well with loving hands. Have less; be picky.
He has learned with age to enjoy more quiet moments, as have I – a sleep on the lawn with the pup, laying in the hammock, gentleness with the kids, sipping a coffee, and a beer or a nip as the sun retreats. He also enjoys playing a bit on the guitar,
and looking at treasured old photos.
I think his style informs my work even more as we get older.
This album is inspired by him; it is the most handsome and robust design I have, and is made with equally masculine materials.


*Black, leather-grained 200gsm alpha-cellulose from KWDoggett
*Strong black hide from local Greenhalghs Tannery
*Waxed black linen thread, 4 ply, from Ireland
*Polished stainless steel closure studs, from Italy
Black-on-Black.  Nothing extraneous. Nothing prissy.
‘Nocturne’, for a quiet afternoon.


Each one is slightly different. Unique. Made by me.
30 pages, drymount, guarded, and ready for your images.
