Disappointing Notebook Shopping

I went to London recently on a business trip and was excited about having an opportunity to spot some notebooks that might not be available in the US… but unfortunately, the trip was a bit of a bust in that respect. I had jotted down the names of some stationery and art supply shops (thank […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Luis

Luis emailed me from Brazil. He’s a fan of Zequenz and Moleskine notebooks, as well as Leuchtturm and some other brands I can’t quite identify from this photo of his nicely organized collection.

What I’m Using Now

I haven’t updated my “using now” photo in a while– the photo that’s been there was of a Piccadilly graph notebook. After that, I went through a Moleskine graph notebook within a couple of months– this was one of the ones I got for 50 cents and it definitely had some quality issues– some of […]
