Cambridge Imprint, Softback Sketchbooks

Cambridge Imprint is a small design partnership based in Cambridge, England. They make a range of products in pattern paper, printed in beautiful colours, with joyful illustration and typography, a lively, hand-printed feel, and meticulous attention to detail.

Cambridge Imprint is a partnership of painter Claerwen James, textile artist Jane Powell and ceramicist Ali Murphy. All share an interest in pattern and texture and the beauty of household objects in everyday use. They use simple, traditional methods of block printing and hand-stenciled screen-printing to create our designs, which are then transferred to our products by modern digital and litho processes in small-scale manufacture. The aim is to produce beautiful, durable objects that have a hand-crafted feel but can reasonably be used every day. All our manufacturing is carried out in England, by experts, using traditional methods of production. The results reflect our design values: enduring, resilient, beautiful things, made with care.

Softback sketchbooks. Please choose from a variety of patterns. 

Softback Sketchbooks are landscape format, and measure 210 x 130 mm. They have 80 pages of good quality 120 gsm plain ivory paper, which takes both pencil and ink beautifully, and which are perforated for easy removal. The lay-flat binding permits the book to be opened perfectly flat. The covers of thick patterned paper are litho-printed with colours hand-mixed to our specifications. The design runs over the front, narrow spine, and back cover and the cover flaps without any branding or fussy labelling. There is a simple Cambridge Imprint stamp on the inside back cover.
