Here’s a neat little notebook that I picked up at the DIA Beacon shop, which was an interesting place to look for notebooks, as some of them seemed to be shelved in amongst all the art books, according to whatever artist made them. In this case, the artist is Shepard Fairey, who is best known [...]
A reader named Lisa kindly sent me these Federal Supply Service notebooks after seeing my post about them having been featured on A Continuous Lean. It was very cool to get my hands on these, as I myself am not a federal employee, and therefore can’t buy them (at least, theoretically. There are places online [...]
I spent the last couple of days at the BookExpo convention at the Javits Center in New York. It’s mostly focused on book publishing, but there are always some cool stationery vendors there. I spent some time in the Exaclair booth, where Karen showed me their new items, some of which I hope to review [...]
I love it when I get emails that begin like this: “My name is Cassie, and I’m a notebook addict. I’m sending you some pictures of my collection.” Here’s what Cassie has to say: I love, love, love notebooks.

Gerard is a curator and arts educator who emailed me some great photos of his “Idea Books,” which he’s filled nearly 40 of over the years: I love the idea of having notebooks dedicated solely to ideas and creativity. And you know how I can tell Gerard is an extremely creative guy? Look at the [...]
This week’s addict chooses Blueline notebooks as her drug– what a great stack! I love the labeled spines. You MUST read the rest of the post at Blueline Notebooks: a Love Story — Journaling Saves– lots of great comments about her journaling habits and why she uses Blueline in particular.
Here’s an interesting take on notebooks that I have to quote at length: I don’t like fancy journals. Hardbound is great for books, but when it comes to things I write in, spiral bound please. No fancy covers – though hard covers can be nice when you write on the road a lot. No fifty-dollar, [...]
Heather at A Penchant for Paper asks How Many Notebooks Are Too Many?: The true notebook addict would probably say that it would be impossible to have too many notebooks, but I am not so sure. I have been feeling overwhelmed lately by the number of notebooks that I am currently using, as well as [...]
