The Mute Books (Libri Muti) collection by Slow Design features notebooks made completely by hand in Florence, Italy using time-honored printing and binding techniques. Choosing your own cover from among the selection of literary classics will inspire you to record your own story, thoughts, lists, or ideas. They colour the edges of the book block by hand, a very nice touch reminiscent of the ancient craft of bookbinding.
These two notebooks together form 'Landscape' by Hendrik Voogd, 1807, and make for a unique alternative to traditional wall art. They also make great gifts either individually or as a set.
