I was quite excited when the maker of these new notebooks contacted me and offered a sample. They take the common format of a 3-pack of staple-bound pocket notebooks and add a flash of color and a touch of travelogue. Zettel Notebooks are made in Berlin, and each cover is a tribute to a part […]

Review and Giveaway: New Monologue Notebooks

I’ve reviewed Monologue notebooks from Grandluxe a couple of times on this site, and I’m always happy to receive samples of their new products.

These first two journals are pretty close to […]

Review and Giveaway: PaperOh Notebooks

I think I understand how they came up with the name for this brand. If the people behind Paperblanks came to you and said they had a new line of notebooks, and asked you to take a look at them, you’d say “Oh!” when you opened the box and saw that they looked like this: […]
