More on London Notebooks

When I was complaining about the bleak landscape for London notebook shopping, I didn’t mention the most frustrating part of the trip!

Disappointing Notebook Shopping

This week’s addict contacted me by email to share this photo: I love this collection– the almost architectural way they’re stacked and shelved, the consistency of notebook types and date/subject labeling.
