Tips from Readers

More from my inbox: A tip from M: “I have issues with the binding cracking/splitting on my Moleskines.  The solution – black duct tape.  Check out the photo.  Works great and doesn’t look too bad.” Peter shares some sketchbook pages and a tip on transfering art to notebook pages: “Just wanted to give you some […]

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: VacuousMinx

This week’s addict displays an orderly and attractive collection of notebooks in a blog post that begins as follows: “There are so many notebooks out there, good ones, that I started to become a little paralyzed at the idea of trying to say anything useful. I would leave so many out! I would fail to […]

Out of Pages Notebook Subscription Service

Here’s another subscription service offering periodic shipments of notebooks. Unlike Rad & Hungry and the now-defunct Lost Crates (which I reviewed), there is no element of surprise to this one.

Notebook Addict of the Week: Landon

This week’s addict has some advice for you: Write It Down. Now.. We need to write things down. I’m not talking about a to-do list. There are plenty of apps (I user Clear) and this is not one of those articles. I’m talking about the things running through your brain right now: your week ahead, […]

Behind the Scenes with Diana Balmori and Her Notebooks

Remember this lovely little book? Reviewed here: Diana Balmori Notebooks When I posted about it a couple of months ago, I’d never heard of Diana Balmori, and found myself very intrigued by this unusual little book, as it presented the pages of her notebooks almost in facsimile, without any commentary about what the drawings represented […]
