PICTOGRAM handmade notebooks

by Karma Tohmé

‘Pictogram’ is a collection of unique handmade notebooks created by Karma Tohmé, using different traditional and less traditional bookbinding materials – bookbinding fabric and leather, grey boards, Damascus Brocart or even Zypaton.

With Pictogram, Karma revisits the traditional bookbinding process, often exposing structural elements or reviving lesser-used binding techniques, while rethinking the usage we make of a notebook, to create distinctive series with names such as “The Dualist” or “One Thought Notebook”.
