We selected key works from science history and included them on our notebook covers.
From Darwin's On the Origin of Species to Newton's Principia let them inspire you as you continue to build on their legacy.
The next great idea is waiting to be written; what will yours be?
We've selected some of the finest, fountain pen-friendly paper available in the UK so as you write the next great theory (or simply your shopping list) your pen will glide over the pages.
And our lay flat thread sewn binding allows your notebook to fall open.
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.
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.
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!)
A lovely gift for a Physics teacher who was retiring. He will love it. Great quality and beautifully designed!
I like how the notepad cover makes me look clever 🧐. It's also great functionality wise given the hard cover, the integrated bookmark, the dotted grid and the fact it opens fully, without having to force it.
I bought this notebook as a gift and I must say, I am blown away! The order arrived promptly, greatly packaged, with excellent communication from the seller at every step (always appreciated when buying from somewhere new!). As for the notebook itself, the beautiful and unique design speaks for itself, the quality of the notebook is simply exceptional and I particularly enjoy the thoughtful touches such as the bookmark ribbon and diagrammed front/back cover inlays too.
I will certainly be purchasing from Atoms to Astronauts again, and will be recommending this unique online store to anyone and everyone going forward! Would give more than 5 stars if I could. Thank you!
A superb quality notebook. The quality of the paper is fantastic - works really well with fountain pens and ink. No ghosting or feathering with the inks I have used. The design of the notebook is brilliant, a conversation starter, especially as a physics teacher. I look forward to seeing future designs.
Thanks Jamie - love this review! THanks for leaving it.
The diagrams are excellent - my favourites probably being those for doppler shift, and onset of turbulence in fluid flow past a cylinder - and they’re genuine physics, rather than look-a-likes. The notebook itself is quality. Ink doesn’t bleed on the pages, and the rulings aren’t too dark (just a personal preference of mine).
Detail for anyone who wants to know: the pages have a slightly yellowish hue to them (comparable to a paperblanks notebook), which fits the style well.
Eleanor, this goes down as my favourite review yet. Thanks so much for writing it and I'm delighted you like the notebook
