How can a drawing pad be beautiful? Just look at the perfectly straight edges, the coal-black (and recycled) cardboard backing, the geometric proportions, and the satin-smooth paper of the Ito Bindery Drawing Pads. And, of course, the lack of any apparent branding. A little too precious for the average note-taker? Perhaps, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting a stack of these pads on my desk pronto. Let’s toss out our sticky-backed notes and never look back, shall we?
