And we end the round-up of what we can expect from Paperchase next season with some of their new notebook designs. I snapped these at their Autumn Winter 2015 press show a couple of weeks ago so apologies for some of the low light. Good things to look out for included colourful mice and sausage dogs, cute woodland characters, and a dark mystic rose.
