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!)
Great quality! Will order another!
I am so delighted that I bought this notebook.
The hard cover is very durable and great quality, the print on the cover is beautifully designed. The end pages on the inside are lovely too. Very high quality paper, perfect for using any kind of pens but absolutely perfect for fountain pens. Bought as a gift for my boyfriend, I also bought two mugs as well and he’s delighted with all of the products.
So happy I discovered this shop!
Amazing note book of great quality, the cover is beautifully designed and anyone who wanted to be an archeologist growing up and a fan of Jurassic Park will appreciate it immensely.
This and all the other designs would make a great gift :)
These notebooks are just awesome!! You'll have that weird "I don't want to ruin this by writing in it" feeling 😃 and the order and shipping went silk-smooth! 10/10
I discovered this shop (and this design) through Reddit and I am obsessed with how good mine looks and how good the quality is !
The cover is extra sturdy, the pages are not too thin and so smooth you wouldn’t believe they are fountain pen friendly (and yet they are).
Originally bought two to gift one to a friend, but now I think I’ll keep both and send my friend the link to the shop.
Also, the owner was extra friendly and added my country to the delivery list when asked on Instagram ! He also answered super fast.
Alison, thank you so much for leaving this review - I love it and I'm delighted you like the notebook.
