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!)
This is a distinctive notebook with an astronomical cover done appropriately in the colours of space. The front papers are also elegant and the quality of the whole book is high. Nice end papers would be a bonus, and I think squared paper would be a good option for a science-themed notebook. Well packaged for delivery.
I have been looking for so long for a decent hardback journal with a good amount of pages, quality paper, and most importantly, 8 MILLIMETRE SPACED LINES!! For some reason, every other journal has 7mm spaced lines as standard, or even smaller, and this is just too tight for my larger handwriting - my writing needs room to breathe. On top of this, your journals have no extra faff inside, just lovely lined paper and quality interesting cover designs to boot! I could not be happier and will be ordering another for the future and will be merrily writing my thoughts down in these little beauties.
So pleased to receive my notebook today. Very fast delivery and it looks even better in real life than it did on the lovely pictures. Will definitely be back for more
Studying Natural Science has been a lifelong hobby, these high quality notebooks are just perfect for my purposes 👌
Absolutely love this book, the cover designs are printed beautifully and look amazing, the pages are a lovely light beige colour which is so much better for my eyes than stark white. the illustrations in the inside cover from all the different books are also a nice touch. seen this ad in a few places and I adore space and dinosaurs so had to get one and I'm in love, going back for the dinosaur one!
