Paw Prints — Pocket Notebook

Back Pocket 27 Club

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

This is a series of four pocket-size notebooks commemorating four musicians who all died at age 27 - hence the name of the collection. On the front cover of each notebook is a drawing of the musician - Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison - and on the inside of the front cover are notes about their life. The front cover image is repeated on the inside of the back cover, so if you so desired, you could remove the cover and have the image and the notes alongside one another.

So why doesn't it work for me?

As we've covered elsewhere on this blog, the choice of writing utensil has a direct bearing on the ideal of choice of paper, and with pencils you want a bit of texture on the surface so that the graphite rubs off evenly without too much effort, although not so much texture that it feels like attempting mindfulness on sandpaper.
