Notebookism


Some notebook brands get it right and create a loyal following of collectors and subscribers. Field Notes, Moleskine and Travelers Notebook all come to mind as role models.

Others try, often with a good idea and then completely balls it up.

Transport and travel have always been a popular theme with Travelers Notebook having sell-out special editions devoted to Hong Kong's iconic trams and the Star Ferry Company.

This other outfit from Maryland seemed on the right track with their notebooks in the popular A6 size, sold in packs of three and cutely packaged. They added matching pencils and even an embroidered logo for the featured US Royal Blue train.

I found some historical notes buried somewhere on their confused and confusing website. The company is named 'Write Notepads & Co' so you can doubtless imagine the fun that Google has if you get any one of the words or spacing wrong.

Beware. The $9.99 price for a three pack attracts a gargantuan $20 international shipping charge!

ON A HAPPIER NOTE HERE IS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO A NOTEBOOK SITE THAT OFFERS SIX ESSAYS ABOUT KEEPING NOTEBOOKS AND JOURNALS ... SO IF YOU HAVE SOME TIME TO SPARE ... JUMP IN AND EXPLORE.

IT IS A LONG ADDRESS SO TYPE WITH CARE. SORRY, I DUNNO HOW TO SIMPLY INCORPORATE IT AS A 'CLICK HERE' FACILITY.

WITH LUCK YOU CAN FIND IT UNDER THIS PICTURE.
