Dot Grid Book

I swear by my graph paper composition notebooks for all my sketches, brainstorming and notetaking. I must admit that I think I’m ready for a change after seeing Behance’s Dot Grid Book.

Favored by free-thinking graphic designers among other creative professionals, Behance’s Dot Grid was developed as an alternative to traditional lines and boxes. The light geometric dot matrix serves as a subtle guide for your notations and sketches. The Dot Grid Book’s cover is a unique suede-to-the-touch hard cover. The pages are made of 80lb Premium Blend paper with a subtle texture (30% post-consumer recycled), double perforated, and three-hole punched between both perforations for maximum flexibility.

COVERS: Semi-Hard Suede-touch Cover
SIZE: 9″ x 10.5″
PAPER: 80lb Premium Blend
BINDING: Double spiral (black)

My Life Story Diary

I love this so much. I think it would be such an excellent gift for a newborn, though it might be a little heavy (not weight-wise, although there is that, I mean more like possible awkwardness if the new parents couldn’t quite grasp the coolness of getting a huge empty somber-looking book for their baby…I guess you’ll have to be selective). It’d probably be a good gift for anyone that likes keeping track of life events the old-fashioned way.
