These books are hand bound after meticulously smoothing out the wrinkles from a recently emptied Tunnock’s wrapper, and stuffed full of Flat White paper (more on that below). Both covers are sturdy hard board, the back one is covered in a plain metallic foil complementing the Tunnock’s branding on the front.
Coptic stitch binding allows books to open fully and lay flat, perfect for journals, notebooks, and sketchbooks. Hand stitched with a beeswax coated linen thread, which gives both strength and durability to the spine.
Flat White paper is 100% recycled, 50% of that is recycled paper and the other 50% is recycled coffee cups. Hence the name! It’s thick and smooth, perfect for artists and delightfully luxe for writers. (Please note: lined, graph, watercolour, or bujo paper can be used instead, please contact me to inquire.)

Fill with thoughts, sketches, ideas, plans, diagrams, and anything else that takes your fancy.
Each book I make is hand cut, punched, and stitched, resulting in a one of a kind piece, and ships with a small card with more information about the binding type. These are the perfect for the creative person in your life with a sweet tooth and sense of humour. A fat free way to enjoy your Tunnock’s… there may even be a lingering whiff of chocolate and Scottish sweetness.

Baile Mor Books is a book design studio and bindery based on the Isle of Iona –and the company name introverted bibliopegist Toben Lewis hides behind.
Most of Toben’s working life has been either directly or tangentially related to books in some form. Post university (studying Visual Arts) his career started in graphic design in the publishing and advertising industries and has evolved to focus largely on book binding and conservation. Although he still enjoys long format book design and layout, he has discovered both a talent for and deep love of the physical act of binding books. Blank books for use by others, printed books for reading, restoring bindings on broken and well-loved books, all of it; there is just something deeply satisfying about turning loose sheafs of paper into a functional and attractive portable unit of knowledge and creativity.
Toben is fascinated by the different mechanics and structures of books and the long history of binding. Bookbinding is an ancient practice and he takes pleasure in employing the same techniques and skills that generations before him have honed and passed on.
