SUGARCANE, SAVING TREES.

A handmade journal filled with over 80 blank and tinted pages made from alternative and recycled papers — sugarcane fiber and postconsumer recycled pulp — so that you have plenty of pages to write and draw on, without harming a single tree.
january 28th, 2007. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a handmade journal might be just the thing to get for that special someone! Filled with 80 tinted sugarcane pages and an original cover illustration, these journals are available in five different designs.

We’ve been doing lots of drawing in the studio and added two new cover designs to the lineup ~ the Travelog, a 1940s airplane, and The Trunk Show, an antique gypsy wagon ~ to bring back a bit of that old school nostalgia. Stay tuned ~ we’ll be adding more designs in the weeks to come. We’re only a month into 2007 and we’re already off to a great start … thank you for all your support!

january 17th, 2007. Happy new year! We’d like to introduce you to our new collection of handmade journals — Five and a Half: Sugarcane, Saving Trees. The pages are made from sugarcane fiber and postconsumer paper, in 3 earthen shades, so you have plenty of pages to write and draw on, without harming a single tree.

These new journals are matched with a series of covers printed in fade-proof inks from our illustrations. “Thiebaud’s cakes,” “Momofuku,” and “Seasonings” are among the first designs in this exciting new lineup.

And, in remembrance of Martin Luther King, we’ve made a limited edition journal with an illustration based on a photograph by Benedict J. Fernandez, the photojournalist who documented King’s work and home. Only 40 of these numbered journals are available, to coincide with the upcoming (2008) 40th anniversary of King’s assassination and his lasting legacy.

We’re really glad to be back making new journals for you to use, collect, and be inspired by. Enjoy!
