Maybe you're looking for a unique gift for the person that's hosting you at their summer house. Or simply searching for a notebook to differentiate yourself from the Moleskine-carrying masses. Either way, allow us to introduce Rebound Books, a small South African company that takes old hardback books and converts them into handy notebooks filled with matte, unlined paper complete with a ribbon bookmark. It's all the style of those Flickr groups of vintage paperback covers with a very functional notebook attached. And before you judge these bookbinders by their covers, know that Rebound donates the insides to schools without library resources. But if you'd like the pages, they'll happily send them along. $26 to $38 at Rebound Books.
