i like to take my work notes in colorful journals and binders. it keeps me happy, makes meetings seem a little less stale and always gets a laugh from co-workers. my trusty standby (a pirate-friendly jen corace) is just about full so i'm on the lookout for a replacement- and this handbound journal with handprinted cover is a solid contender. made by alex brooks of press817 in lexington, kentucky it's available for $30 right here. enjoy!
