I love this image of what seems to be an old diary written in Italian. Found at the link below– I’m not sure how the text and image relate, even after a translation to English! Via Taccuino di prigionia (17) | Brotture.
A beautiful set of notebooks, one lined, one plain and one squared: Spotted at the French online shop Papier Tigre, where they have a lot of other gorgeous designs too!
I wasn’t familiar with the artist Camille Bryen, but here’s a nice image of one of his notebooks: From an auction listing a few years ago for a lot of 4 notebooks.
I first heard about the TWSBI brand via the Fountain Pen Network forums, which are a great place to discuss and learn about all things pen-and-notebook-y. I personally don’t have a mania for fountain pens, but people who do are very picky about the paper they use them on, so I’m always interested to know […]
Here’s the stash of notebooks I brought back from my Amsterdam/Paris trip. First, two little notebooks from a local newsstand/bookstore near where I was staying. They had a nice selection of school supplies, and other notebook brands such as Moleskine, but these two were inexpensive and not like others I’d seen elsewhere. The blue one […]

They are the closest substitute for a Moleskine sketchbook with the heavy-weight card stock paper, and they’re affordable and well-made. But I’ve never reviewed their other notebooks with standard weight paper. Squared notebooks are […]

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 […]

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 […]
Gorgeous old notebooks! These belonged to a Portuguese historian and geographer named Orlando Ribeiro. Read and see more at Famous Sketchbooks: Orlando Ribeiro’s Field Notebooks | Endpaper: The Paperblanks Blog.
