Hope it is full of family, friends, fun, and feasting before you start thinking about shopping… but once you do… here’s a few gift ideas for your favorite notebook addict–perhaps yourself! Brice Marden Notebooks: I posted about these recently, but hadn’t yet received my own copies of the facsimile […]

Story Supply Co.

Here’s another start-up notebook company, launched with a Kickstarter campaign.

Story Supply Co. is banking on a demand for locally made products and socially conscious businesses as it markets its notebooks. Read […]

Moleskine Monday: Blend Collection

Moleskine continues to mix up their product selection with unexpected departures from their standard styles. The latest is the “Blend Collection,” which feature woven cloth covers and contrasting elastics: The Moleskine logo on the back can’t be debossed as usual, so they’ve put it on a little patch: See more at Moleskine Blend Collection.

Paper Saver Notebook

Here’s an interesting concept– the Paper Saver notebook “The Paper Saver turns your printed paper into a stylish faux leather notebook. Once the paper is inserted into the Paper Saver, it will become an elegant, professional notebook.” It’s a nice idea– I always seem to have a mountain of paper to recycle in my office […]

Sideshow Press Note Pad Folio

Here’s a notebook that sent me into a wave of nostalgia: the Note Pad Folio from Sideshow Press. The pressboard cover reminds me so much of various notebooks I had as a kid into my college years. I had a blue report cover made of this material, with a spring-action clip inside. I also had […]

Review: LatLon Notebooks

Here we have another Kickstarter project that I decided to support at a modest level. When I saw the design of the LatLon notebooks, I thought it was quite cool-looking, and an interesting concept. Each notebook has a letterpress printed cover featuring the contour lines of the elevation of an island or glacier or the […]

The notebooks come in a variety of sizes and […]
