The Scribe is the cornerstone of the Crowing Hens Bindery blank book catalogue. Designed using the famous 19th century "springback" account binding structure, The Scribe combines this innovative binding technology with modern aesthetics. 

The signature “spring” action allows the book to open completely flat with a satisfying “pop.” This unique feature that makes this book a delight to operate every time. This historic “springback” binding is now available as a deluxe journal. After using one of our Scribes, you won't want to use anything else!

Bound entirely by hand, The Scribe combines quality materials and traditional binding techniques with unique decorative elements. Durable enough to withstand the abuse of daily use, The Scribe is built to last and is a trademark of quality craftsmanship. 

*This is a handmade product. Each book is made entirely by hand from start to finish using raw materials and traditional bookbinding methods. The item you receive may be slightly different than the item in the photograph. Every book is lovingly created with keen attention to detail and tested before it leaves the bindery to ensure that it is structurally sound and operates properly.
