My new Traveler's Notebook arrived yesterday, the Olive limited edition, and I took some time tonight to customise it.
That's my favourite part of starting a new Traveler's Notebook – setting it up, making it my own – and the main reason I enjoy them so much. This is my fourth TN. I have a Camel limited edition from their 5 year anniversary, a black one, and a pocket one. The camel is my most used
First I decorated the notebook it came with, using Windsor Newton gouache. I love ivy and the greenish tinge if the cover inspired me.
I added a leaf charm to the bookmark and slotted in another notebook — an old Midori sketchbook I had laying around.
That's it, now all that remains is to use it.
P.S. I read a review in some site that these TNs have a suede like feeling to them, but they feel like a normal TN to me.
P. P. S. These covers don't stay pristine for long (and that's their charm), so if you're precious about your things, these aren't for you.
