Notebook Addict of the Week: Pepperguy

This week’s addict was spotted on the F***Yeah Notebooks and Journals Tumblr page, a good source for notebook eye candy! Pepperguy says “I have a bit of an addiction.” I’d love to see more beyond this tantalizing glimpse of Moleskines and Field Notes!   See more at I have a bit of a notebook addiction. […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Krystina

This week’s addict was brought to my attention via an email from a reader named Reema. Krystina wrote about her life-long habit of journaling at her website, Baraka Birth. “I’ve been keeping a journal since 1991, when at age nine I was a gap-toothed kid tearing up the playground in New Delhi, India.

Midori Spiral Ring Notebooks

Midori’s Traveler’s Notebooks are so widely popular, they seem to be almost the only Midori products you ever hear about. But they also make this lovely line of spiral notebooks named after animals (and an insect). From the descriptions at the Miscellaneous online store: Midori Spiral Ring Notebook is a series of notebooks with a […]

Notebooks by Mazzottibooks

Mazzotibooks is a bookbinding and letterpress studio in London. They make some unusual notebooks with wooden covers and sewn tape bindings. I thought this one was particularly beautiful: At £55.00, it’s also particularly expensive! But if you want something handmade and special, it might fit the bill.   See more at Notebooks – mazzottibooks.

Stolen in Seattle: A Hobonichi Techo

I feel this person’s pain, and hope someone is able to help! From a local Seattle blog: “After a car break-in over the weekend, Aidan is just hoping to get one thing back: Saturday night (last night) our mini cooper was broken into in the Skylark Cafe/Bar parking lot. … They took my messenger bag […]

A Wonderfully Messy Sketchbook

I love this image of an Ellsworth Kelly sketchbook! I found it in a blog post by Zan Popp, who uses it as an example of famous artists’ sketchbooks, and muses about sketchbooks in general: “What I really like enjoy about my sketchbooks is that I allow myself to be messy. I don’t have to […]
