Aside from notebooks, one of my other great loves is books. So I completely identified with this week’s addict’s linking of the two : Bookish people tend to like books with words already in them as well as books that are blank and waiting to be filled by their own hands. I know I do. [...]
I came across a blog post by this week’s addict, who has an explanation for her problem: I blame my mother — and not just because Freud told me to. When I was little, there was a small chain of paper good/office supply stores in our city, and my mother used to take my brother [...]
This week’s addict is from Holland, and sent this picture of her collection, or rather, part of it: “I’ve been a fan of your site for a long time and for an equally long time I’ve been wanting to send you a picture of my own collection. What was holding me back was a sense [...]
This week’s addict emailed me photos of his collection with the following commentary: I’m a normal guy, high school grad and going into college. I’d like to share with you a couple pictures of my notebook collection; though this picture is incomplete, it includes about 80% of all my notebooks. Favorites: red Miquelrius 300-sheet journal [...]
This week’s addict was another submission by email. She writes: My name is Acacia and I am a notebook addict! I buy them at every opportunity and covet them unabashedly. I write in them as journals, books of stories, collections of poems and quotes I like, but I am a faithless lover. The lure [...]
This week’s addict posted the image below on Flickr: A nice collection, with Rite in the Rain, Moleskine (cahiers and regular), Rhodia, Paperblanks and Miquelrius. He’s also written about his notebook choices here. See the original image and comments at Notebooks – never enough.
I went through a phase in the late 1990s when my notebook obsession was relatively dormant, because my lust for handheld data receptacles of a certain size and shape had displaced itself onto the Palm Pilot and its various descendents. PDAs were my addiction then: I bought (and resold) about 15 different models over about [...]
Millie sent me a link to this photo of her stash of unused notebooks. She points out that 2 didn’t make it into the photo… and I bet her collection of used notebooks would be pretty impressive too! Full details on what all these notebooks are at Unused notebook collection. Thanks for sharing, Millie!
A few months ago, I met Karen from Exaclair at her BookExpo booth and got a sneak peek at some new items from Rhodia and Clairefontaine. A few weeks later, some lovely samples showed up in my mailbox! Let’s take a look. First off, here’s the new large Webnotebook with dot-grid paper. I love dot-grid [...]
I can’t pronounce this addict’s name, but I like the collection, which appears here on Flickr with annotations.
