Review and Giveaway: Halaby Aero Flightbook Notebooks

Can you judge a  notebook by its cover? Perhaps! I was very excited to get these samples from Halaby Aero. The first time I saw these notebooks at Paper Presentation in NYC, I immediately thought they were cool. I have no day to day use for any of the airplane-related info on the covers, but […]

This week’s addict says “I’m Ina, I’m twenty, I live in Manila, Philippines. If I wasn’t broke right now, I would run to a bookstore and buy as much notebooks as I like. Sigh.” Love these photos, which include a friend standing in as a measuring tool! This was her collection as of March 31, […]
