Edition #47 Notes

Designed with Selina Saldívar, an illustrator and lettering artist from Texas. Selina and I were supposed to make the 45th Bookhead Club edition together, but due to a printer error we couldn't use what we designed. Though said error was frustrating, it worked out for the best since October is Selina's favorite time of the year and for it she illustrated a brand new and very seasonal cover.

Inside you'll find screenprinted endsheets with a floral pattern that Selina designed back in May. Echos of those blooms were brought onto the updated cover design. Plus each paper style has a unique color combination including its thread, endsheet, and stat card.

It has been an absolute joy working with Selina through the journey of this collaboration. Make sure to check out her Instagram for inspiration that is sure to give you a boost. 

Fray level: Normal

Most Dapper Notes covers are made using fabric, which naturally frays with use. Each material behaves differently, and this meter will help you gauge how much fraying to expect from your notebook. Read more about fabric covers

Color matching

The cover's colors are echoed throughout with four color combinations, one for each paper style. There's a matching thread, endsheet and stat card color: blank is pink, dot grid is orange, lined is teal, and graph is pumpkin.

Stickers for all

Two stickers are included with each notebook. One has the cover's dos calaveras design, and the other sticker contains elements from Selina's original design. Though we didn't end up using it on a notebook, we just had to share it with you. And if you'd like, you can grab extra stickers.

Dapper notes are the antidote to the digital age. Every item is handcrafted, hand-sewn, and designed for maximum delight.


Highest quality construction and materials, keen eye for detail, and delicious design, month after month.


Dapper Notes are the best quality pocket sized notebooks you can get. The textile cover and thread binding means the books will hold up through time. I love the thick paper as well; good for fountain pens.


I am a lover of texture, both visually and physically, so the different book covers are perfect for me!


Wow, beyond beautiful. They are very well made and sweet. Thrilled to have these gorgeous notes.


Beautifully made, exceptional craftsmanship, wonderful customer service!


I love this notebook. It's beautifully hand crafted, very sturdy, and makes a great conversation piece. 10/
