SNIJLAB, a Dutch design studio based in Rotterdam, has introduced a series of booklets fabricated entirely from wood. Cut from a single sheet of birch plywood, a clever array of laser-cut perforations allows for the cover to hinge with complete flexibility, while another wooden piece clamps an A7 format notebook inside. A series of slits on the back cover allows for a band to be slipped in and around the cover, keeping the notebook shut. SNIJLAB promotes this simple but effective fabrication method as a means of reducing the resources spent on shipping; since the laser cutter is a standard tool in the design industry, these booklets can be spread digitally and manufactured locally as needed. The booklets can be ordered in portrait or landscape format at SNIJLIB for €25 EUR (approximately $34 USD).
