Paper in the Digital World

Some lovely notebook images and thoughts about why we still love paper, and in fact may love paper even more because our lives have gone digital. From the article: “If you find yourself dependent on notebooks, even if much of your work is online, you are part of a growing number of people who are […]

A Paleontologist’s Field Notebook

Catching up on some old links I’ve saved, here’s a nice wrap-up of some books featuring the pages of artists’, designers’, and scientists’ notebooks, including the one below from Field Notes on Science & Nature: “A typical notebook page detailing the thoughts and events of a day doing fieldwork at Olorgesailie, Kenya, with a personal […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: The Well-Appointed Desk

This week’s addict is the blogger at the Well-Appointed Desk, who says: “I was pulling everything out of my bag this morning to get situated at work. One, two, three… four… five!

My Inventory of Spare Notebooks

As you might imagine, I have a lot of notebooks stashed in various places. I have boxes of them under beds and in cabinets and in drawers. They are at home and at the office. They are pretty much everywhere! Lots of them are old ones that I have used. Lots of them are new […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Unmana

This week’s addict counted all the various notebooks she is using currently for various notes and lists– she counted ten, eight of which are in the photo below. I’d love to know how many more she has that aren’t in current use because they are filled up, or waiting to be.     Quite an […]

Notebook Addict of the Week: Joe

This week’s addict emailed me the photo below, and added these comments: The attached photo is of my notebook collection.  Being in the military I take 2 or 3 pages of notes everyday.  I carry a large rite in the rain. They are very durable in both design and paper quality. I have a moleskine […]

Weather Notebook

A neat little article in the New York Times about amateur weather trackers. You can read it online here, but the photos only appear in print: That is quite a dense page of notes!
