  • Kickstarter for New Sketchbooks & Notebooks for Thinkers

    There isn’t a sketch­book or note­book out there that we feel tru­ly under­stands how those of us use them on a dai­ly basis. After a lot of search­ing over near­ly two decades we decid­ed to make the book that we want to use. We’ve cre­at­ed many pro­to­types and are ready to place our first order for manufacturing—and that’s where we need your help. Without a sig­nif­i­cant amount of orders the man­u­fac­tur­ers can­not make any books at all.

    We’re a small group of thinkers (design­ers, illus­tra­tors, writ­ers, entre­pre­neurs and the like) that love to sit down with a note­book or sketch­book and give birth to inter­est­ing thoughts and ideas. While today’s dig­i­tal age is fantastic—we love technology—we’ve found that our best work always starts on paper.”
