A while back, I came across this post on how to make a notebook with a chalkboard cover: Chalkboard Notebooks – Honest To Nod. It reminded me that I’d made a similar one myself when I was a kid, back in the late 1970s. To make the notebook below, I asked my father to cut [...]
Some cool usage of an engineer’s field book by artist Kim Zoph: Kim’s comments on using it: “The journal has a hard, bright yellow cover, which seems like it would withstand variations in the weather quite well. Indeed, it’s advertised as weatherproof and highly durable. The book has 80 pages, with paper of 50% cotton [...]
Here’s a few things I pulled out of one of my storage boxes, about half of which is filled with childhood notebooks from the late ’70s to mid-’80s. First, a small orange looseleaf notebook. I was probably in about 6th grade when I decided to devote it to Astronomy and colored the cover with a [...]
A neat little article in the New York Times about amateur weather trackers. You can read it online here, but the photos only appear in print: That is quite a dense page of notes!
I’ve been rather fascinated by field books lately. I first owned one when I was in college– I forget where I bought it, but I stumbled on it in a store, thought it looked cool, and ended up using it for some art classes where its durability came in handy. I hadn’t thought about it [...]

A reader named LC tipped me off to this interesting conference happening this coming weekend at Harvard: “Take Note” brings together scholars from literature, history, media studies, information science, and computer science to explore the past and future roles of note-taking across the university. Panelists will discuss the history of note-taking in different disciplines as [...]
Here’s an addict I found while just surfing around the internet. Wonderrrgirl is a student from Singapore. She loves notebooks, and she takes beautiful notes in them! Wonderrrgirl says: This post is about notebooks. It’s half of the collection of all the notebooks that I’ve kept in my life (I’m really too lazy to drag [...]
