a note on writing longhand & the perfect notebook
Once upon a time, I filled notebook after notebook with writing. It was the writing on the way to the writing as I called it. But then came Web 2.0, smart phones, texting, et. al. My stacks of notebooks dwindled. I wrote less and less. Or differently (the jury is out on better or worse). But on a recent shop at Indie Mart I happened upon Peperina Girl, maker of eco-conscious products and found a notebook of my dreams. Made from recycled album covers and 'up-cycled' (unlined) paper, my longhand, pen-and-ink writing habit is finding new life. Hooray for the handmade, and handwritten.
