Early Autumn Notebooks.

IMG_1135
While walking around one of my favorite shops (Trohv) on Labor Day, I spotted Word. notebooks on the table near Field Notes books. We reviewed Word. books a few months ago, and you’ll recall the I loved them. I’m sure lots of Comrades are waiting for the new fall Field Notes to come out. But I needed some notebooks! And this orange is far more…earthy and autumnal in person than it is in most of the photos I’ve seen online. Paired with one of these pencils, it’s an early autumn Pocket Notebook Combination to put one in mind of chai tea and reading Poe outside under a light blanket.

Speaking of Trohv, there is a release party for Scout Books and some local Baltimore-based artists this Friday night, before Saturday’s Hampdenfest. Assuming that The Infant and The Toddler are behaving themselves, I’m hoping to go. Are there other Charm City Comrades who might be there?

(Pencils: General’s Kimberly; General’s Cedar Pointe; Mitsu-bishi Hi-Uni — all HB. Also: Dig the Word. leaf and flower books! Hope they keep up making interesting new covers.)

It’s fall.

And we should be here talking about the notebooks that Cal Cedar sent us, the beautiful new Field Notes (in the mail!) or publishing a few reviews we’ve had in the works for months. I’d promise that it will happen this weekend. But, well, the weather in Baltimore is too nice for that.

But stay tuned. There aren’t enough Paperblanks reviews out there, and we’ve got a great one coming up.
