Archie Grand is a notorious Scandinavian producer of sketchbooks, notebooks, cards, candles and tea towels. Founded in the recession of the 1980s, the original family company found itself in dire straits after the death of Archie's grandfather, Reinhold. Archie was at this time in London attending numerous art colleges.
Having met some of the characters of English society (Alan Clark, Nigel Coates, Lord Archer, Bruce Bernard, to name a few) during his London years, Archie came upon the notion that each of these charming charlatans should each receive a notebook of matching colour a gift to aid them in their creative pursuits. And so Archie Grand Notebooks, for friend and foe, came into being.
