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. I first came across it at Pocket Blonde, and two readers also emailed me to make sure I’d seen it! (Thanks!)

If you look closely at the upper edge of the image, just left of center, you’ll see two of the Northern Central Co. memorandum books I reviewed in this post.

What a great looking collection. I wish I could identify more of the brands, but I’ll bet a lot of them are long-gone from stores…

  1. I love this. I love John Hughes movies. He created movies with characters that experienced teenage angst just as I was at the same time, teens who talked creatively and wittingly, dressed cool and listened to ingenious music. Knowing that he was a notebook addict makes me connect even more. And I love how you used the phrase “left of center” in your post. “Left of Center” is a song by Suzanne Vega on The Breakfast Club Soundtrack!
