Cheap Notebooks at Barnes & Noble

Spotted at a B&N: bargain priced Piccadilly notebooks (medium size only) and a prompted journal/sketchbook, obviously modeled on Wreck This Journal.

Logo Designers’ Sketchbooks

Here’s an article I came across at Medium.com: Inside a Logo Designer’s Sketchbook: “Every designer has their own design process, but paper and pen is the first place to start for most.

Basquiat Notebooks

I was so excited several months ago when I heard there would be a big exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum all about Jean-Michel Basquiat’s notebooks.

I’ve reviewed Monologue notebooks from Grandluxe a couple of times on this site, and I’m always happy to receive samples of their new products.
