Our newest collection, Nocturnelle, features designs that originate from an antique French binding from the 1800’s. The original binding has a cover designed in 1829 by publishers A. & W. Galignani for The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore. It features many of the hallmarks of fine binding from that era, when book designers looked to their forebears from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries for guidance.

Our Nocturnelle books feature metal clasps and book edge printing


The cover was reproduced from an 1820’s binding of The Poetrical Works of Thomas Moore

  1. Do you have the Nocturnelle in a planner? Years ago they did in the midi size. If you could let me know if Paperblanks has published a planner in any size that would be appreciated.

    • Hi Dawn,

      We are not offering the Nocturnelle design in our 2018 planner selections. There a couple of similar designs you might like though, such as Azure, Grolier or Safavid. A full listing of our 2018 planners can be found on our Dayplanners Page.

    • At the moment, we don’t have any plans to bring back Nocturnelle in other size formats. However, we have been receiving lots of great feedback about this design recently so have been making a note of the interest. We will pass this along to our design team!
