I’m pretty picky about reviewing things that aren’t notebooks. I’ve occasionally been asked to review notebook covers or pen holders and the like, but I usually decline the samples, as I’m just not that interested. So when the makers of the Doxie Flip Scanner offered me a sample to try, I at first thought I […]
This week’s addict has a lovely and emphatically titled website: Pens! Paper! Pencils! All 3 are suitably celebrated there, including these notebooks: This beautiful collection includes Moleskine, Rhodia, Muji, Calepino, Field Notes, and Monsieur Notebook. I really love those nicely worn-in leather covers, from Davis Leatherworks. (where they are only $17!) Read more at Notebooks.
I’ve gotten questions from readers before about alternatives to some of the pricy leather notebook covers out there. I haven’t spotted that many cheap ones for sale, until recently discovering Davis Leatherworks, which seems to have some nice-looking and inexpensive covers. But if you enjoy creativity and you’re willing to put in a little effort, […]
This week’s addict posted a simple message on Twitter, with the photo below: “Finally filled my 100th @FieldNotesBrand notebook.” They look great all lined up like that! Original tweet: Twitter / poploser: Finally filled my 100th ….
I’ve mentioned and reviewed Field Notes a few times on this site, but I’ve never been a big fan of their notebooks and all the hype around them. It was great to be able to try their notebooks thanks to readers who sent me some samples, but I’d never felt compelled to buy them… until […]
Occasionally I get emails from readers who want to contact people I’ve featured on this site with notebook collections including Field Notes. There are lots of limited editions, and people like to collect them all. Now there’s also a website and Facebook group that can help with this quest: Field Nuts! Check out the forums […]
This week’s addict blogs at I Still Write about some of our favorite things : letters, postcards, pens and notebooks! He started the blog to teach his kids about the fast-disappearing world of snail mail, and how cool it is to write and receive good old-fashioned paper correspondence to and from places around the world. […]
It’s taken me forever to get around to reviewing these notebooks, despite having basically had someone else write it for me! Below are some comments and photos from Ted, a former addict of the week: Got my order of Calepino today. Basically the french Field Notes. Right down to some of the wording on the […]
I have to admit I had no idea what an Anole was when I found this, but I have now learned that they are a type of lizard, and Albert Schwartz, a professor of biology at Miami Dade Community College, was an expert on them, thanks to all the notes he kept in these: […]
Now here’s a perfect holiday gift for a notebook addict, at least if they like Field Notes or similarly sized notebooks: I’ve always thought it would be nice to have some custom-made, perfectly-sized notebook storage. This box adds a nice extra: tabs that you can use to organize your various Field Notes volumes. Pretty […]
