Deluxe Black Beauty


Size Guide
      • All Crème Deluxe notebooks each feature white stitching, matching pen loop and top-stitched pockets.
      • Full grain leather is supple with a luxurious matte finish.
      • Drum-dyed for rich tones and stunning variation.
      • Natural range marks add the beautiful, rustic character.
      • Four strands of elastic on all sizes for securing inserts.
      • Center spine closure.
      • Color and texture may vary slightly between lots.
  • It’s not hard to see why the Crème Collection has been popular since Chic Sparrow began. Made from leather that is chrome-tanned and oil-treated, Creme notebooks are powder-smooth, soft, and pliable. They feature a naturally matte finish and dramatic grain that will not scratch easily and patinas beautifully with daily use. Crème fans are drawn to its buttery texture and wonderful aroma. This imported leather is thick (3.2mm to 3.6mm) and comes in three rich colors: Crème Brûlée, Dark Chocolate, and Black Beauty. 

    Classic notebooks feature four strands of elastic and center spine closures, with optional pen loops, stitching, and custom inscriptions. They may be customized with a personalized inscription of your choice (up to 15 characters).

The chart above shows the dimensions of the notebook while is is laying flat open,  from edge to edge.
 Overall, my notebooks are slightly wider than the common, allowing for no overhang if you follow these guidelines. Your notebook edges will be fully protected.
Below is the information for the corresponding inserts.   These measurements are the sizes of the inserts. 
Pocket  fits notebooks approximately 3.5” x 5.5”. Most commonly used are Field Notes or Moleskine inserts. Up to 5 inserts less than 1” thick  
A6 fits notebooks that are approximately 4"x6" (i.e. The Hobonichi Techo),  And do not exceed more than 1.5 inches in depth
Personal fit inserts that are  3.75" x 6.5 and do not exceed more than 1 inch in depth.
Narrow will hold up to 5 standard Midori brand inserts (approximately 4.5” x 8.25”) that are not more than 1” thick.
Wide  is sized for 5” x 8.25” inserts (usually Moleskine Cahier sold in a three pack). At least 4 inserts that do not exceed 1” thick will fit.
A5 notebooks that measure "5.8x8.25" (i.e. the Hobonichi Cousin) and do not exceed more than 1.5 inches in depth.

If you already have inserts:

Measure them carefully and find the size that is their closest match on the chart above. If you are between two notebook sizes, always choose the larger one.  Next, stack up the number of inserts you’d like to carry and measure how thick they are together.  This tells you how thick your spine will be when your notebook wraps around the inserts. Compare this to the width of the notebook you’re considering.  

For example, if you are using inserts that are 4.5” x 8.25”, and your stack of inserts is 1” high, you’d know you’d need the Narrow size. But if your stack is larger than 1”, you’d want to go up to the Wide.
