So, you lost Magic Margin's drawing for Rhodia notebooks. Dammit!
Well, hold on just one minute, now. Don't go getting your knickers in a twist. Seems that Uwajimaya opened a new location 'round these parts, so you're in luck.
What? What does that have to do with notebooks, you ask? Well, Uwajimaya, an insanely great Asian grocery store, tends to carry imported stationery and whatnot (and even has a bookstore in its downtown Seattle location). I was ambling through the store's latest new location the other day, and found, in a display of Sumi-e painting supplies, various sizes of the highly-regarded Apica notebook.
Now, one doesn't tend to find Apica notebooks lying about any old where; I've only been able to buy them from eBay importers in the past. So I consider this a good thing.
One of the most appealing qualities of the Apica notebook, you will undoubtedly agree, is its cryptic cover phrase:
I grabbed two red ones of the 5" x 7"-ish size, and would like to share one with you. Leave a comment about your favorite notebook brand and I'll pick a winner this Friday, April 1st (not an April Fool's joke, I assure you).
