Mixiw Notebooks

Here’s a recent successful Kickstarter project, the Mixiw notebook. I’m not sure how to pronounce Mixiw– mixee? mix-ew? Anyway, it looks like a nice concept– a variety of inserts will be available and you can mix and match them in the cover, and archive them in a binder when you’re done. The binding system looks […]

I have a horrible […]

Unfortunately, the Pogo printer was not compatible with all digital cameras, and used a version of Bluetooth that didn’t work with iPhones at the time […]

Brice Marden’s Notebooks

I’d love to take a look through these:   On a page of his 1964–67 journal, underneath a small cutout of Manet’s 1862 painting of Victorine Meurent, Brice Marden wrote, “Cézanne tried to kill painting by denying forms for the sake of painting. He seems to have come closest to painting painting out … I […]
