I picked this one up with all the other loot I got at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, although I can’t find a link to it on their website. This notebook in particular has handstitched binding, a memento pouch, and acid-free, sustainable forest paper. You know, to make my mother mad because it believes in preserving the earth.
