”The greatest loss is the paper archive - no more a great stack of manuscripts, letters, and notebooks from a writer's life, but only a tiny pile of disks, little plastic cookies where once were calligraphic marvels.” - Paul Theroux”
It’s easy to romanticize about the written word as travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux does above, but on the other hand there’s a sturdy practicality that comes along with having a notebook on hand to write down your thoughts — whether that means the first line of a new short story that just came to mind or you just need to jot down a grocery list. One of our favorite aspects is that it’s an excuse to not take out our phone, something we could all use these days, and a great place to capture thoughts and ideas before they escape your brain into the ether. That being said, we asked ourselves why not have a handsome one, something a person put their craft and hard work into, rather than a mass-produced version with no soul to it, and this handcrafted, made in USA leather notebook from Rustico surpassed all of our expectations.
