Italian designer Davide Longaretti lives in Osaka, Japan, and in cooperation with Japanese paper manufacturers and printers, produces extraordinary and beautiful notebooks under the name FABER.
The high quality paper selected by Longaretti is printed by machine with his designs and then processed by him personally in bookbinding.
Great attention to detail can be seen in the craftsmanship of these notebooks. The pages are perforated longitudinally for easy separation, and there are two other circular perforations so no hole puncher required.
The notebooks contains a copper strip with embossed FABER logo, which serves as a bookmark, or to join separated sheets.
The material of the cover, which also comes from Teshio, is almost understated, but rather a diamond-shaped thread-reinforced composite material made of a wafer-thin aluminium layer on paper and another layer of enforcement paper. This layering makes the notebook extremely robust, wear-resistant and also visually particularly attractive.
The protective covering can be folded into an envelope and is also perforated so that a small viewing area can be removed from the front, if desired. The cover can thus be labelled individually.
The notebooks are bound by copper staples and protected by Japanese wax paper closed with embossed copper tape.
