Forty days after we launched our Kickstarter campaign, we emerged victorious with the generous donations of 473 backers and a renewed sense that the quality notebooks we’re offering are just the sort that people are looking for.
We’re now in full production mode, constructing notebooks for all of our lovely backers. They'll be shipping shortly, so keep an eye out!
For those of you who missed the campaign and would like to order notebooks, have no fear! A new website and online retail shop is in the works. If you’d like to be informed when it’s ready, please sign up for our mailing list.
Mirth & Co. is a small company started by bookbinder, John Bell, and designer, Shaun Fox. Mirth & Co.’s purpose is to provide products to help people engage with the finer things in life, like the ideas we conceive, the people we love, and the places we inhabit. We have chosen to start with a product that is sacred to all dreamers: the notebook. There are lots of notebooks in the world, but we feel like there is a lack of notebooks that do justice to the things held in their pages.
John Bell is a hand bookbinder living in Austin, Texas. A lover of all things paper, he is an obsessive photobook collector and enjoys making line drawings of random people’s faces. He likes to drink coffee with his wife and watch their little daughter live out the most important human aspiration: to play.
