by Steve Zelle, Graphic Designer, Ottawa Canada

I picked up this 144-page notebook while perusing an independent brick and mortar bookstore recently—do you remember when these were not so difficult to find?

Designed by Benjamin English, the 6″ x 8.5″ book is an interesting alternative to sketching on a blank page.

“Map out graphs, schematics, sketches, and dreams with this sleek and durable workbook. Inspired by vintage laboratory notebooks, Grids & Guides features 144 pages of graph paper (eight designs repeating throughout) interspersed with a multitude of scientific charts, tables, and infographics featuring everything from the periodic table to alternative alphabets to Newton’s Laws of Motion. This journal is the perfect tool for right-brainers and left-brainers alike.”
