Notebook Addict of the Week: John Hughes

Just in case you haven’t seen it elsewhere, I had to post this photo from an article in Vanity Fair, displaying the notebook collection of the late John Hughes, the creator of all those memorable 1980’s teen films such as Pretty in Pink.

Sketchbook Cover by John Hendrix

I love this sketchbook cover: From accidental mysteries: John Hendrix Sketchbook Cover. Russian Notebooks

One of these days, perhaps after I win the lottery, I’m going to go on a notebook tour of the world.

Our latest addict of the week is Hannah, who blogs at Slightly Lovely. Here’s her stash: And here’s what she has to say about them: This is a pile of notebooks gathered from around my bedroom (I’m sure there are more hidden on shelves, in closets & drawers).
