Decomposition Books

Decomposition Books are notebooks characterized by "a clever cover designs and a number of eco-friendly attributes ... Each book features 100% post-consumer-waste recycled pages that were manufactured in a mill powered by methane captured from a local landfill;
and soy ink printing, which contains fewer VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) than regular, petroleum-based ink and is
also easier to recycle." They are made in the U.S.A.

The first one I bought looks like this:


Their pages hold up well to the ink of even my wettest fountain pen. I recommend them, even though I find the format a bit large for carrying back and forth from home and office. They have as smaller format (4 x 3) as well. Alas, it is too small. What I want is something closer to A5. See this earlier post

There is a similar project from Tartu, Estonia. They're re-using books printed in Estonia during the Soviet period. For an Estonian, it is impossible not to like the covers. :-) See here: www.tartuensis.com
