There is nothing comparable to the anticipation of reading – or writing – the first line in a beautifully bound book or journal – you never know what adventure awaits. I buy them constantly – the books are all eventually read, but many of my notebooks sit unused, waiting for the absolute RIGHT idea to start using them. I’m working on that – and I wouldn’t mind starting with one of these gorgeous Jack Germain x Emgie Libris notebooks.
I met Jack, the founder of Jack Germain, at the Martha Stewart American Made Conference – she designs and manufactures amazing leather bags in New York. Wanting to find a use for the leather that was wasted during the production process, Jack partnered with Marilyn Glinka of Emgie Libris, who makes beautiful hand-made books in Philadelphia, to create the Jack Germain x Emgie Libris collection.
