I am insanely happy and proud to announce The Standard Memorandum! In collaboration with my good friends at Word. Notebooks, I designed a pocket notebook that will live by your side every day for one year, regardless of hard drive crash or disconnection from the cloud.
In this day and age where technology is nothing short of omnipresent, it’s so satisfying to chronicle something by hand, only to revisit it in the future and see a story told not just by words on a screen. Tears, spills, changes in handwriting — all of these things contribute to the story of life and the nostalgia we all crave.
The idea behind these notebooks is to keep a brief survey of your day. When you get to December 31, take the book out of it’s leather case and put it in a box somewhere for safe keeping. Get next year’s book, slip it into the leather sleeve, and repeat the process all over again. After a while, your leather sleeve will age beautifully and you’ll have a box full of memories in a way most people of our generation never had.
You can purchase your Standard Memorandum notebook here, as well as a leather sleeve of your choosing with free monogramming. Put it in your pocket, on your night stand, or on your desk and let life do its job filling it up.
