About the maker: With graphic designer Kim Harrup-Brook at its helm, Esmie is the result of a happy marriage between bold contemporary style and the traditional crafts of bookbinding and screen-printing. Taking inspiration where it can find it – from old English design, say, or from Japanese print – the brand has created a collection of notebooks and other bits that is wonderful in its vibrancy, diversity and sheer prettiness. Quite accurately, Esmie stands for ‘Elegant Stationery Made in England’.
