Edition #51 Notes

For the third year in a row, Dylan Goldberger of Dog Gone Studios designed the June edition, right in time for the Go Skateboarding Day. Unlike all our previous collaborations that included Dylan's animal illustrations, this time we're highlighting New York City using elements from his Five Borough print series. There are many cover designs, and you'll receive one at random.

For the decorative endsheet, Dylan created a repeating cityscape pattern using the Five Borough elements, and he also screenprinted them himself with a golden-mocha ink onto rice paper.

Bookhead Club subscribers will receive one of the five NYC stickers alongside their notebook, and every notebook order comes with a coordinating bookmark.

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

Texture delight

The cover fabric is a soft faux suede, and was screenprinted by Dylan using his signature blue ink. Which means there's a texture contrast between the ink and the fabric that is such a treat. When you see them in person you'll see what I mean. Sensory heaven.

A special box

Dylan's cityscape pattern came out so nice, we decided to bring it into the notebook's packaging. The box is still in the classic Dapper Notes, this time with offset printing on a 14pt stock, and with colors and illustrations to match the notebook inside.

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/
