Notebook Addict of the Week: Joshua

This week’s addict is Joshua Blevins Peck, a librarian, writer, musician and photographer who has amassed quite a collection of notebooks all devoted to one topic– recording all the movies he watches, over 4000 of them so far! I’d say he’s a movie addict as well as a notebook addict.
Here’s what Joshua has to say about the source of his notebook addiction:
“I watch a lot of movies and in 1998 decided to keep track of every movie I watched that year, while writing short reviews, tracking what city I saw it in, who I saw it with and numerous other stats I enter into its pages. I called the project Kinetoscope as a nod to early film history. 18 years later and I’m still doing it! I’ve logged over 4,000 films seen in 59 cities, in 10 countries and with 129 different people. My notebook of choice has been quite varied over the years, but in 2016 I discovered the Hobonichi Techo and with its amazing Tomoe River paper perfectly blending with my fountain pens–it will be my notebook of choice as I continue onward with my addiction.”
