Video Notebook

The Video Notebook is a throwback to humble pre-Netflix days. Conveniently, saving only the best parts —a protective sleeve and label stickers!— and sparing any of the headaches —tape trackng anyone?— of the obsolete format.  Video Notebook is 260 pages and available in Ruled or Plain. How long will it be until we see the DVD version of this?

A Goal Planner

As we all know, goals are often easy to dream up but sometimes very hard to accomplish. Designer Victor Jack Mathieux set out to make a planner that has a step-by-step guide for setting goals. Intended for absolutely anyone, the easy format is a snap to follow and will help you define your resources and action plan. Once you have the plan down on paper, all that’s left is putting it into practice. Could be a thoughtful gift for a recent graduate.

Poketo Daily Calendar

We’ve featured a similar version of this before, but this version is updated with more pages and a different color, and now it’s offered again stateside, so I thought it was worth another visit.

This hefty calendar features a monthly planner, a weekly and daily calendar and a blank area for notes, all color coded by section.

Think Note Jotter Centennial

This notepad has the IBM values message imprinted inside, which is nice in an old-school familiar sort of way. Black with white THINK imprint on cover. Only drawback it seems is you might have to order them in bulk. (Does any retailer have them for sale individually?)

Keep Your House in Order Journal

Sometimes, and I do stress sometimes, planners are filled way too quickly with meetings and other work related stuff to the point where any home notes fall by the wayside. Perhaps it would be beneficial to have a separate journal altogether to jot down groceries, bills, DIY projects, etc… even to make note of books and movies to read and watch. Could be a smart way to keep work and home life separate (literally).

Fourteen month, undated planner.

Fabriano Artist’s Journal

Does this slightly crinkled journal elicit any cravings to pick up a pencil and draw? Or perhaps writing down your daily thoughts is more your style? Either way the colorful pages might tempt you to spend a bit more time with a pen or pencil rather than your keyboard.

A product from the oldest paper mill in the western world, the Artist’s Journal is ideal for ink, pencil charcoal or pastels. It is made of 12 elegant colours of Fabriano Ingres 90g paper. The journals come in two sizes and contain 192 plain sheets.

12×16 cm, $30.00
16×21 cm, $38.00

Storyboard Book

So the Storyboard Book won’t win any awards for originality. Moleskine has been making their own pocket storyboard notebook for a while now. But what the Storyboard Book lacks, it sure makes up for it with presentation. Because, well, just look at those graphics and bright yellow cover! Who would pick a plain black notebook over this one?

A lightweight, portable, and durable sketchbook for storyboarding, sketching, listmaking, visualization, plans, doodles, and just about anything else. The idea is simple: a frame for the action and space for notes, story, dialog, stage directions, enemies lists, etc. The Storyboard Book is designed to be used as a personal sketchbook, but also sized to be handy for project notes and ideas.

$10.00 for a 3 pack, $15.00 for 5.

Moleskine Colour A Month Daily Planner Box Set

T minus 24 hours until the official gift unwrapping begins, so if you’re still rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off, maybe snap some of these up from your local bookstore and call it a day. Moleskines are great, and despite the mixed reviews on this set, they’re pretty much the perfect gift for artists and note takers, or just someone that always seems unorganized (don’t say that to their face though).

Revolver Bound Journal

This journal kind of reminds me of those wonky wallets that you have to fold over a few times to get to your money. Anyways, it’s two journals in one. One side is lined, the other blank. Watching the video might make you a little dizzy, but you’ll get the gist.

The RevolveR revolutionizes the ancient art of bookbinding. This versatile, high-quality journal is built using the innovative, patent pending Revolver Binding Technique which allows the journal to turn inside out and back again around a floating spine, revealing the surprise of a second folio actively demonstrating that there are indeed two sides to every story.

64 lined pages; revolves to 64 blank pages
100% recycled paper

Small (4″ x 5.5″), $16.00
Large (5.5″ x 7.5″), $21.00

Moleskine 2010 Project Planner

I know I’m not the only one who gets a little weak in the knees when seeing a stack of Moleskine notebooks (at least I admit it), so if some of you have seen this already, my apologies. The new project planner looks to have all the features we know and love in the traditional Moleskine, except inside you’ll find a 54 accordion page sheet that allows you to view your project’s time line at a glance.

With two layouts for both short and long term projects, it makes your planning easy to see at a glance. The creative concept features one giant sheet of heavyweight paper folded in to 54 zig-zag accordion pages. If you want, pull out the entire page and extend it to view your project in one discrete linear view. Both sides feature a month view, but in two different ways. One has it in a linear format, covering two days along two folds, with eleven spaces to write project details. The other side features several pages of useful info (more on that below) and a horizontal format.

3.5 x 5.5 inches
