Etsy store Fabulous Cat Papers specializes in Japanese paper notebooks, enhanced by intricate embroidery. An “embroidered notebook” is an unusual enough thing on its own. But Fabulous Cat goes the extra mile with their choice of embroidery subjects. Eschewing images of fabulous cats—despite what their name would suggest—Fabulous Cat Papers instead chooses to embroider anatomical veins over realistic depictions of heads, wire-frame renderings of blank faces, and mathematical representations of black holes and infinity.
The illustrations and color-choices would be striking on their own, but the three-dimensional texture of the embroidery thread gives these notebooks an added pop. There’s something remarkably attractive about meticulous stitches standing in for blood, pixels and invisible equations. A Fabulous Cat Papers notebook is like a present a refugee from a Tim Burton movie might give a Wes Anderson character.
