A slanted notebook...?

Thanks to Matt Brown.

While reading through the Fountain Pen Network to catch up on the paper scene, I happened upon a thread: "An Interesting Paper Idea". And frankly, i'm not sure what i think about it...

Thanks to Matt Brown.

The link was to Ideas & Exploration by Matt Brown. Matt is an American designer living in Italy who has a website of projects and a blog too.

The interesting ideas of Matt Brown.

Anyway, his interesting idea is slant ruling on a notebook, his answer to the way that a lot of people sort of twist their notebooks when writing in them. So, here's his notebook with a 45 degree ruling.

I'm not crazy about it - not being much of a notebook slanter myself, but there may be something to it...if nothing else, the pages do kind of have an art deco vibe...


  1. At least you can credit it as being different :)
    I'm lefthanded so it'd be useless to me - unless he was to bring out with the lines on the opposing slant as well :)
