★ Pelle Leather Journal — An Invocation

It should beseech one to fill it. When within reach, it should call to you to grab it, hold it, open it, and pour yourself into it. It should beckon your plans, drawings, ideas, dreams, experiences, doodles, schemes, diagrams, plots — each empty page left wanting without these.

No one can romanticise a notebook quite like Patrick can in his write up of the Pelle Leather Journal, really makes me want one despite the fact that I have at least 50 other notebooks already.
