Vintage 1960s School Exercise Books

September evokes nostalgia and back-to-school feelings for many of us, especially if we have a weakness for fresh notebooks and sharp pencils. 


Satisfy your stationery cravings with an unused vintage school exercise book, made by Manchester-based company Thomas Wyatt and Sons, for the County of Durham Educational Committee. 


Each one features an inked book plate style stamp emblazoned with the Durham coat of arms. After careful research, I’ve dated these exercise books to the 1960s as the central black diamond in the coat of arms was replaced with a white rose in 1974. The cover colour is a beautiful burnt umber, further adding to the cosy Autumnal aesthetic. 


Inside, the blank pages are lined in aqua and double margined in red, giving you a useful space to annotate any of your notes. 


Perfect if you love good old-fashioned pen and paper to organise your thoughts, have a weakness for vintage stationery or school supplies. 


Would also make a thoughtful gift for a loved one with a connection to education or a friend who appreciates the optimism and possibilities that a fresh notebook can bring.
