Needing a splash of colour?

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

It is getting lighter in the evenings. With an eye of faith, I can see it. But about this time of year, I need a real splash of colour with my notebooks. Whereas black, or grey, or navy are just fine and dandy most of the rest of the year, when it's cold and snowy and predominantly dark, I need some zing and some zest.

So, with no further ado, let me share some of the brightest and cheeriest of notebooks on offer at Nero's.

Let's start small and work our way up...

The advantage of a centimetre...

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

The vast majority of pocket notebooks are 14 cm x 9 cm. With dot-grid versions, the dots are never perfectly aligned with the top and bottom edges of the page. With lined versions, there is never a multiple of 7 for the number of lines per page.

So? Who cares?

Well... I do. Because if I want to use one as a weekly planner, I cannot get 7 equal-sized days. Step forward the Storyboard notebook by Endless. This is 15 cm tall. And that centimetre makes my heart glad.

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.
