From the head of “YuIzdat”
It seems to me I have finally found, from my point of view, a perfect version of a notepad, and then followed the idea that the good should be shared.
The hard covers make it convenient to use the sketchbook in midair and thanks to the spiral fastening you can fold the block as you please. In addition, you can attach a writing tool, the bookmark-tag or whatever you like to the spiral. The snow-white front cover can be changed/decorated according to your taste. There are unlined pages inside, and you may write and draw (an eraser rather simply removes a soft pencil) –– in this regard I think of the diaries of Frida Kahlo and Paul Gauguin. You also can tear out the sheets, because they are without pagination, and hold the notebook horizontally and vertically. The paper is pleasant to the sense of touch, it is loose and feels as a “real” paper. Besides, please pay attention to the volume! Convenience and economy were joined in it.
Another significant point is that I wanted that thing could become your own. That is why the cover and pages are blank, the information about the sketchbook is placed on a functional tag, tied by me personally. If you decide not to use it, you can take it off. At the same time, I considered it reasonable and appropriate to indicate the authorship of the publishing house, so you see two inscriptions on the back cover: the address of the website and “osmyslennaya zhizn’ / conscious life”. By fixing our thoughts and feelings, our inner life, as Virginia Woolf put it (if I understand this combination of words correctly), we make our life more meaningful. Perhaps, we will not be happier in the result, but what is more blissful than flashes, insights of awareness and understanding? Anyway, to my mind, a conscious life is the only thing that really makes sense. However, this is just the author’s opinion, and the notepad somewhat accompanies the book “Conscious Management…”, but it is valuable and good in itself.
