Customise Your Notebook with Jessica Smith Illustration | Chelsea Bloom 2023

Customise Your Notebook with Jessica Smith Illustration | Chelsea Bloom 2023

Join us for Chelsea Bloom, where we’re bringing back illustrator and mixed media artist Jessica Smith to our Chelsea store. Jessica’s playful designs, which use bright and bold shapes, have been featured in products for Kate Spade, Oxfam, and Adobe.

On May 26th, come to Papersmiths in Chelsea, London to watch Jessica live-paint her signature floral designs onto our British-made notebooks. Bring in your own Papersmiths notebook for a £10 refresh or purchase one to be painted in-store for £30, including the one of a kind illustration.


Your notebook will become a timeless piece of art once Jessica illustrates it. When you’ve filled all the pages inside, you can easily remove the cover and frame the front page.

But hurry. We will have a limited supply of customised notebooks available for purchase after the event. They are one-of-a-kind and sure to sell fast, so make sure to come and guarantee your personalised notebook on the 26th of May.

Our Papersmiths notebooks

Our notebooks are designed in Hackney and printed and bound in Buckinghamshire. They feature smooth, fountain pen-friendly paper stock that minimises show-through, as well as lay-flat binding that allows the notebook to open without forcing the spine. The cover is 270gsm and produced in the Lake District. It’s bound on with the front and rear hinges only, making it easy to remove and frame your decorated cover. The cover also features a subtle blind embossing of ‘Papersmiths’ on the back and a satisfying thumbprint-sized monogram on the front.


Don’t miss out on this event! Check out Jessica’s work on Instagram (@jessica_smith_illustration) and follow us for more updates (@paper_smiths).
