Michael Bierut's notebooks

“For the past three decades, [the design firm] Pentagram’s Michael Bierut has kept a numbered series of notebooks — plain composition books, filled with rough sketches, notes taken in client meetings, doodles and design ideas — that cumulatively provide a record of his working life.” The notebooks are the stuff of an exhibit at the College of Saint Rose (Albany, New York): 30 Years 90 Notebooks (via Notebook Stories).

There's just something about an American marbled composition book that makes me want to sit down and write all day...

If only some plucky manufacturer would revive the Royal "Vernon Line” notebook. But I doubt there’s enough of a market.
