It’s a well-known fact that carrying a notebook is a great habit for highly creative people. There’s nothing worse than getting stuck somewhere with a great idea and without a pen and paper. So as the kids all head back to school this September, I’m here to say that stationery isn’t just for the classroom. Here are ten of our favourite notebooks, from pocket-sized pretties to A5 diaries, on sale right now for all of your creative ramblings.
