Stalogy A4 graph pad

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

To be perfectly honest, this notepad has me a little stumped.

Don't get me wrong; the pad is delightful - glass-smooth paper; 5 mm grid lines in a light grey; some numbers across the top and down the side (marking off cm). Writing on it is a wonderful experience.

I just have no idea what it's meant to be used for. The label says "A4 size sheet pad (for chart and project) 5 mm grid. Simple and clean design for all pages. The numbers on the sides show the length of lines you draw."

Okaaayyyy...

A Journal Habit

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

I’ve written several times about keeping a journal, both here and at my blog stuartlennon.comAt one stage, I was keeping multiple journals, analogue and digital. Thankfully, I’m down to one now, and I have been keeping it consistently. My secret?RoutineMore than anything else, this is what keeps me on track. I write my journal at the same time, in the same place, every day. I’m an early riser. And every morning works the same.I get up, and empty the dishwasher (probably my sole contribution to the running of the home). Then, I make a coffee, sit at my kitchen table,...

Moved by a static anthology

Posted by Scribble Monboddo on

What on earth does Stalogy mean? The mind fairly boggles. For a historian it's so close to 'stalag' that a Great Escape is probably on the cards if we don't move on pretty sharpish and talk about the notebook itself, so let's do just that.

This is a classic example of a simple concept, executed perfectly. It's just an exercise book - but it's a faultless exercise book. For...

Stalogy 016 notebooks

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

At last! Stu has finally taken heed of one of my pleas!

A gazillion years ago, when I was wittering about my writing notebooks (you can see the post here) I bemoaned the fact that Nero didn't sell B5 notebooks. Well, only 2 years later, Nero does! And what a notebook they are too!

Enter the magnificent Stalogy 016 notebooks, available in green, blue, yellow, grey, red, or black covers.

These Stalogy 016 are one of my top notebooks. In fact, probably my favourite B5 notebook of all time. I accept they're a tad large for a pocket notebook, or even for a general carry-around notebook (oh, just buy a bigger bag!), but as a project book or on the desk, they are superb.
