made to order, made by hand

Our sketchbooks and notebooks are for artists and writers who choose quality over quantity. ‘Handmade’ is not just a buzzword in our studio - we love binding books and it shows with every book that leaves the Lake Michigan Book Press studio. Ordering from us gives you the chance to tailor any journal to fit your individual needs - whether you are a writer, artist or planner addict.

Though every book is made-to-order, we pride ourselves on turn-around time. Your book will typically ship within 5-7 business days.
