I spotted these unassuming letter-pressed notebooks at last month’s BookExpo America show in New York City. Designed and manufactured by Art House Co-op in Brooklyn, New York, each piece in the Pocket Dept. notebook line features 35 pages of unlined, high-quality paper that is perfect-bound for durability. When it comes to petite notebooks, I’m a Moleskine addict myself, but I like the vintage, muted colors of this line and the handmade quality that makes whatever you are jotting down that much more classy. The line’s Name, Date, Place series includes the Back Pocket ($8.00), the Shirt Pocket ($10.00), the Backpack Pocket ($11.00), and the Messenger Bag Pocket ($12.00).
