Paper + Time + an Affinity for Small Books

Muji Chronobook

I have a strange weakness for bags and notebooks.

I have far more bags than items to carry in them, and drawers full of yet-to-be-used notebooks.

Some notebooks have a special purpose assigned, and I simply haven’t gotten around to it yet. Some are just too “nice” to be used for mad scribbles and boring work.

My daily books are from Rhodia, a large wirebound sketchbook, and of course my tiny and handy Moleskine cashier notebooks

Oddly, I’m also attracted to datebooks / organizers, despite knowing that I’ll never really use one.

And I always think I need the Action Series by Behance, but apparently, buying them hasn’t made it to my action list yet. Link

Last year I gave out the very cool, Slingshot anarchist/activist organizers to several people (Slingshot, Monkey Wrench Books)

Now I find myself faced with wanting to get 2 different datebooks for 2009. And here I thought was doing well with my little problem.

The Haruki Murakami Datebook is a beautifully designed book, with reference by the Japanese author from his many wonderous books.

The Muji Chronobook is definitely a lust object. A simple book with a Day and Night side per spread. It’s arranged in a non-linear fashion, with very little in the formal, rigid time-keeping mindset.

The Muji Chronobook is only available at the Muji Store in Soho, so if any of my NYC peeps are in the area, my birthday is coming up.
