Amsterdam Notebook

€16.95 EUR

The Amsterdam Notebook by The City Works.

0.4" l x 4.9" w x 6.9" h

0.42 lb

The cover is hand-pressed in our studio in Austria, leaving a lasting impression on the cover, and hopefully on you too. The spine is also embossed with the name of the city, with our logo on the reverse.
Each notebook has 128 plain inside pages, bound together in the Netherlands using OTA-binding.
This method is stronger, uses little glue, and allows the notebook to lay totally flat while using it. This maximises the creative area.

Each notebook is strapped in a frosted-paper bellyband, complete with a set of four-line guides:
Ruled, Gridded, Dotted and Hello World (a fun template for drawing landmarks or colouring in).
They’re bold, simple, sturdy, and slot perfectly into the spine of the notebook. The notebook is available in five colours:
Blue, Yellow, Pink, Green and Rust.
• Hand-pressed cover
• 128 blank inside pages
• Includes set of 4-line guides
• Available in five colours

Made in Austria

The City Works is a contemporary souvenirs brand, founded by Sylvia Moritz and Rowan Ottesen in 2015. It is based in Vienna, Austria. Each city collection is carefully researched and intricately drawn, with a variety of items made using the designs. Everything is designed in-house and made within the European Union. After studying Graphic Design in her native Austria, Sylvia Moritz travelled America, partaking in illustration and printmaking courses at the SMFA, Boston and UC Berkeley in San Francisco. After completing her Design degree at the University of the Arts London, Sylvia practised as a print-maker, with her intricate city etchings turning a few heads. Sylvia then ideated a brand that used this detailed urban style in a flexible, creative, and affordable way. And so The City Works was born, on her 25th birthday, in April 2015. Originally from England, Rowan Ottesen studied design for a number of years, before residing in London while working as a Graphic Designer for a handful of London-based design agencies.
