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!)
The paper is excellent quality, and the images on the front and back are SO well detailed!! I will definitely be buying more of these in the future for my lab work!
Very happy with my notebook purchased for my anatomy loving daughter!
It's great quality with clever design and drawings. A winner for Christmas
Everything screams quality, the wonderful design, the silky feel to the paper, the 1st class customer service. I am a very happy customer.
I decided on the Anatomy soft cover, and for me it was the right choice, as I just wanted something different. Working offshore I need good notebooks for a plethora of working deeds. Over the years I have had them all from Moleskin to Paperchase to whatever I could find in the airports. this product is just as good as any of them. I use fountain pens, ball points, pencils and felt pen and the paper in this product takes it all in it's stride.
My constructive criticism would be looking to the future for this company. Firstly I'd like to see a ribbon page marker on the soft cover notebooks and secondly 50% more pages. That's a personal choice as I like a chunky notebook.
So If your looking for a quality product and you enjoy a good notebook do yourself a favour and purchase one of these little treats.
Bought this for my boyfriend who just got into medical school, he loved it!
