I love the promise of a new notebook. I run my hands over the cover before I open it to the front page and sit for a moment with my pen poised above the first line. This notebook could become anything, a place to doodle, to write down my plans for the future or home to my writing. While some notebooks come and go, some remain forever. In a box in my study lie the scores of journals that I kept during my teenage and university years. I recorded everything, every crush and friendship, every party we went to, every teacher that crossed my path.
It’s been a long time since I kept a paper journal, having gone online at the dawn of the internet, but this week I encountered a notebook that immediately inspired me to pick up a pen again and write.
The Dreamday Pattern Journals are a set of colouring-in journals designed for “writing, musing, drawing and doodling”. Each journal is inspired by an iconic design location and featured over 100 pages of note paper intertwined with colouring pages.
Previous Dreamday Pattern Journals include Mid-Century Modern – Scandinavian Design, Heraldic – Paris, Renaissance – Florence and my personal favourite Art Deco – Manhattan.
The Dreamday Pattern Journals are designed in London by Pentagram, one of the world’s most iconic design studios, and are a must for any stationery addict.
