PENSAMENTS (the Catalan word for Thoughts) is a collaboration between Susanna, of the Hidden Hands Collective and Marta Soley, the creator of Dolça Llibreta.

This is not just a note pad or a blank book. The Art Codex is a hand made book for you to let your mind flow.
The stiching is hidden to allow the cover to wrap and envelope the book like a blanket, protecting its contents. It has been designed so one end of the cover can be used as a book mark and the other end has been cleverly folded to create a secret pocket.
Everything in this piece is a reflection of our thoughts, it has different types of paper to write or draw on in the same way we have different types of thoughts:
Some days our thoughts are clear and develop easily, some days they are foggy and shy, some days we have loud thoughts as well as hidden and secret ones on others.

The image on the cover is a hand printed Photopolymer showing a shell from which magnolia flowers emerge and grow, like our thoughts escaping from our heads. It has been printed on cotton paper using the softests of grey tones so the image inspires mindfulness.

The Art Codex is perfect for anyone with a creative mind, anyone who loves writting, drawing or simply appreciates using uniquely designed and crafted objects.
It is easy to carry at 18,5 x 14,5 cm.
The cover is printed on 250 gsm Somerset Paper. All paper and card used inside is recycled, ecological and FSC certified. The binding is made with linen thread.

Printed in London. Bound in Sabadell.
