Paperblanks *Giveaway* - 2012 Gift Guide

Paperblanks revives the artwork and the knowledge of eras past, using meticulous craftsmanship to bring these elements into the present through the medium of journal art. With nearly 4 decades experience in print publishing and typography, they are passionate professionals who believe the written word matters and that their blank books have a critical role to play in the art of writing. Each book they craft contributes to the continued practice of writing itself. They have been producing superb writing journals for nearly twenty years; the beautiful notebooks they create are based upon a long history of bookbinding design.
I received two absolutely stunning journals! Honey Bloom Midi - Brocaded Paper. Sumptuous varieties of gold decorated paper. Gold leaf blocking on leather and parchment has been practiced in Europe since the early 16th century. When applied to paper in the late 17th century, this method of relief printing produced brocaded paper, which showcased European craftsmanship and aesthetic exuberance, employing various metalworking tools to cut patterns on thin sheets of copper or brass. The patterns - ribbons, tendrils, arabesques and floral blossoms - closely echo the sumptuous designs of leather wall coverings and silk damask of the time. I love this journal so much, I am saving it for something very special. I hardly want to write in it, it is gorgeous!
Lincoln Speech - Embellished manuscripts. Great minds at work. To inspire the writer, these unique journals portray the work of some of the greatest writers, thinkers and artists of all time. These reproductions of excerpts of original manuscripts, letters, scores and drawings provide a glimpse into the creative process of figures such as William Shakespeare, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Vincent van Gogh. I enjoy this journal very much. I love writing in it. One of my favorite journals of the many in my collection!


  1. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
