Badly Made Books make books and paper products with a minimum of 70% post-consumer waste materials. They hand produce notebooks made from recycled paper. Based in Cork City the badly made books studio specialises in the production of high-quality, low-impact local stationery.

The studio & workshop has developed since 2015 when product designer & founder Seán O Sullivan wrote & illustrated his first book other seas. Like a tree falling in the woods and no one being around to hear, a book with no readers doesn’t make much of a sound. just before his book fell forgotten back of the couch Seán realised that production & distribution of stories was equally as important as the writing & illustration so he started to make some books… badly at first.

Seán chose to use recycled materials, risograph printing and hand-operated machines in combination with a unique binding method to create lay flat recycled books for various uses.

Badly made books make every attempt to consider the environmental impact of our production by minimising ink usage, purchasing used equipment and offering full usability of our product.
