Where ever I go, my notebook goes with me. Its aestethics is important to me; my notebook is made of faux leather (vegan, I hope), it has brown and white sub-notebooks inside, and a bamboo pen goes well with it. Inside are my name & business cards, decorated with ‘Birds, Butterflies, Fish & Botany’ 😉.
When I was a teenager, there was only one kind of notebook available. Classroom girls all had the same notebook, with different colours but all with a worthless mini lock and a mini-key. Now, in our digital age, there are so many different ones, made for different needs and for a wide range of personalities.
Remember it was said that the computer would make our desks book-, snail-mail- and paper-less? No such thing happened. On the contrary! We still have way too many books; we buy newspapers and we have sketching, drawing, Japanese, Korean, decorative, packing and so much other paper; there is more instead of less.
Do you have a notebook? How do you use it? To inspire others or to act out inspiration? To digital detox? As a memoirs for your children or for yourself?
