This goodie's gone for good—but we've got tons of other fun stuff on hand!
This piece salutes the craft of bookmaking by deconstructing it, with an exposed spine, bright stitching, deckled edges, and a series of full-page painted washes by Linda Geary—her own color swatches. The result feels like a beautiful work in progress that only needs your pen, pencil, or brush to be complete. Heavy cream stock pages seem to grow more supple with use, making this a keepsake workhorse.

I'm an art student and I keep a sketchbook with me as a visual diary. I've always had difficulty sticking through a whole book - usually I do for the need to practice, not out of attachment, but I really love this book. I love how it opens flatly everywhere - the paper is smooth and takes water-colour, ink (I use india ink with brush) and colic, ink felt markers very well. It's quite thick but there's a great deal of it too. I bring it everywhere with me - it's the best book ever. I only wish I got a larger one, which I will once i'm done with this. I feel quite naked/empty without this book around - it's really made me comfortable. Also love the coloured papers in front and at the back of the notebook, which allows for customisation. There's also a little window in between the pages that i appreciate. Initially I was hesitant, because it was a little dear (and I didn't want to feel too conscious of making mistakes), but it's worth it once i started enjoying the paper quality. Anyway, I love this notebook, this brand. LOVE IT!
