I first discovered Paperback Note via a link at Better Living Through Design. It later turned out I’d made their creator a notebook addict of the week. It makes perfect sense that Herman would be so addicted to notebooks, he had to start a company to make them! Paperback Notes Notebooks are made of old [...]

The notebook is a blue softcover Moleskine Cahier notebook silkscreened with a silhouette of the lakes in light blue. It’s perfect for taking notes or doodles and is [...]

I’ve seen these at truckstops too, and also wondered why there would be a brand of notebooks exclusive [...]
Here’s an interesting article– not about notebooks in itself, really, it brings up some interesting questions about how people “recycle” vintage imagery for stationery and other products. Two young women in Cincinnati are testing the fringes of Fabulous Fifties nostalgia by selling reproductions of 1955 police mug shots. And their company, Larken Design, [...]
I was very impressed by this beautifully crafted Moleskine cover, made by an artist named Jennifer, as a birthday present for her husband. What a great gift!
