Really enjoyed this post, Peter! I have two of your fabulous notebook covers and really appreciate them. Loved reading about how they came about.

I know what it's like to say goodbye to something like this - I closed my own creative business a couple of years ago now. It wasn't an acrimonious split or anything: our parting was amicable! Happy memories, and yes, I miss it sometimes. It was right to move on.

I know the notebooks weren’t your life but you are good at it.

I love my Startbay cover, it traveled with me quite a bit - perfect companion for the Usk Symposium and my trips home - and it still does <3 Happy to be able to continue reading about your adventures, notebooks making or not.

I am one of the lucky people who owns some of your gorgeous notebooks. I use them regularly. And I dearly miss the shop. I was really sad that you stopped making them (although I totally understand your reasons). There are times I wish Iβ€˜d bought all of the special editions I missed out. But thank you so much for the time that you shared the books with us all.
