Wit & Whistle Notebooks

Travel Notebook | Wit & Whistle

Why, hello there, lovely new notebooks from Wit & Whistle.

If you or someone you know is a traveler, a writer, an artistic type, or a prolific note taker and list maker, I think you’ll all dig these hand lettered and illustrated notebook designs, which would make great gifts for the upcoming holidays. And I love that the interior pages on the lined notebooks are done with quirky, hand drawn lines. What a fun detail!

I already have my eye on the “Draw Something” notebook because having that in front of me every day would be the perfect blend of motivation (the quote) and convenience (the notebook, where I’d do the sometimes sucky drawing).
