Hi, my name’s Damian
I’m a chemistry teacher and during lockdown, I was reading a lot of works from science history (I’m a nerd, unashamedly). Einstein, Newton, Darwin, Curie. All the big hitters.
After seeing the diagrams and equations that changed history I thought they would look really cool on a notebook cover. So I designed a chemistry one. For myself at first but then a few friends asked for one. Then a few people I’d never met. Then a dozen more. Then hundreds more. And now here we are!
My hope is that these notebooks and the works of history’s greatest scientists inspire you in your work as you build on the legacy of Einstein, Newton, Curie et al.
Your notes alongside those of the greats
We began Atoms to Astronauts because most science gifts and merch are a bit dull or uninspiring.
We wanted beautiful covers to reflect our love of science and show off the achievements of history’s greatest scientists.
So, we included extracts from the works of Newton, Curie, Einstein and more on our covers to inspire you as you build on their legacy.
A notebook is only as good as its paper
A notebook is only as good as its paper so we selected premium UK milled paper to give you the best possible writing experience.
You’ll notice how smooth the paper is and how your pens glide across the surface and your inks won’t bleed through so you can write notes on both sides of the page.
And our lay flat thread sewn binding allows your notebook to fall open so you can write at your desk, on your lap or anywhere else without having to hold the pages open.
Handmade in the UK
We partnered with a world-renowned bookbinder to produce notebooks befitting of the great scientists on the covers.
Handmade by a team of experts using techniques honed over generations our handmade notebooks are carefully constructed entirely in the UK.
Sustainability Materials & Practices
Our notebooks are made in the UK so only have to travel a few miles from our manufacturer to us.
This greatly reduces CO2 emissions compared to using overseas manufacturers.
Once you've opened your science parcel from us, you can place all the packaging in the recycle bins, including the tape (even the packing peanuts are compostable).
All our paper is FSC certified and recyclable (but these notebooks aren't for throwing away once finished!)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the hardback note book. It is beautiful!
My son has just joined a firm as a graduate nuclear physicist, it is for him for his birthday. He will love it!
As a quantum physics student, I wanted a notebook that I can use to store my personal maths and physics formulae with some formal derivations in the form of a guide book. This is exactly what I’m looking for. This is such a high quality notebook and the paper works so well with my gel pens. It glides over the pages and makes it easy to read.
The edges aren’t the usual pointed corners so won’t get badly damaged when in my bag.
Great customer service and loving the weekly science newsletters.
Will definitely be purchasing more.
My niece loved this notebook and will be taking it with her when she starts Uni next month.
My maths and physics undergraduate son absolutely loves this notebook. He struggled to choose between maths, quantum, classic and computer science as they are all good and relevant. Great quality notebook, I need one for myself now!
Really well made and study notebook. Really interesting front cover and good quality paper. Well worth the money!
