We forget, sometimes, that pencils really are the product of all sorts of complex technological processes, but they are. Their role in the voting process is almost part of a ritual; walk along to the polling station, take the form into a plywood booth, and reach for a stubby little HB on a string. Old school? Sure. But it works.
So what's the Norderly like as a notebook? Well, it's pocket-sized, sturdy, and filled with excellent paper which behaves well with either ink or graphite. Now available all over the world thanks to a collaboration with Nero's Notes, I think you'll like it.
Ah. One of the many reasons I love writing for Nero's Notes is that I get to see some of the new stuff before all of you lot, and get to see prototypes. The Nero's Notes crew were delighted to be sent a sample of a new pocket notebook - the Norderly - recently.
So, what's it like?
It's really,reallygood! You know me - I can be a fussy madam over paper and whether they'll play nicely with fountain pens... these are fantastic.
