Notebook Addict of the Week: Zachary

This week’s addict won one of my giveaways (the Halaby Aero notebooks), and just happened to mention that he already had quite a collection. Of course I asked for photos!

Zachary says:

“I’m an architecture student so I’ve gone through four years of trying find the perfect sketchbook/notebook and another four years of still not using the one I deemed perfect because there’s a whole world of notebooks to try. Pictured are 52 books I use for drawing and journaling. Most are completely filled up and I’m starting to run out of space. I scanned one of my sketchbooks and is available on my website here:

I’ve been using sketchbooks since I was little and one of my fondest memories as a child was waking up and finding a new sketch pad at the breakfast table that was a present from my mother. These days, I tend to be very picky about what sort of books I buy and I usually go by paper quality and since I use fountain pens often now, I stopped using Moleskines altogether. I’m still waiting for Rhodia to come out with a decent sized sketchbook without dots or a grid. But these pictures give you an idea of the variety of tasks my notebooks pull. They can be artbooks, nature collectors, note keepers, technical specification references.

But at the moment, I’m carrying a Canson sketchbook which I bought two of at the time since they were priced at five dollars apiece. The paper is great and the books are made in France.”

I loved getting to see Zachary’s collection, and the pages on his website are really cool! Thanks for sharing your addiction, Zachary!
