We love a good notebook.
Sure, the iPhone Notes app is handy, but when it comes to recording important happenings and momentous occasions, it just doesn’t have the ‘oomph’ of a lovely clean, crisp page.
If you know someone who feels the same about stationery, we’ve found a gift they’ll be thrilled to find under the tree this year.
As part of Hubert Bookbindery’s first artist collaboration, the talented local illustrator Fiona Foley from Pear Shaped Studio will be wrapping her dreamy nightscape illustration ‘Under the Stars, Cork City’ around their handmade notebooks for the festive season.

The higgledy-piggledy array of well-known Cork buildings features landmarks such as the Shandon Bells, the Courthouse, and the Fountain, all arranged together under the glow of a gorgeous skyful of stars.
You can order one now (€25) via the Hubert Bookbindery shop.
“These notebooks are lovingly made in Cork City by Hubert Book Bindery located on Tobin Street,” said Fiona. “The Cork City Notebook is available in a Medium size 17×12 cm, using acid-free, lightly textured cream paper with light grey lines.”
You can also purchase Fiona’s ‘Under the Stars Cork City’ illustration in a fine art print – €35 via Etsy.
