Designed and distributed by Ellen and Matt Dudley, a New York-based husband and wife book-production and design team, the RevolveR line is another little gem I found walking the aisles of last month’s BookExpo America show in New York City. This magical little multi-tasking journal features a patent-pending binding technique that allows you to literally turn it inside-out and back again by way of a floating spine. Besides being a great conversation starter (attention singles!) the notebook’s dual personality allows you to keep track of two projects — love poems, sketches at the museum, a list of things to do before you die — neatly inside the same book.
The original RevolveR comes in two sizes and features a cover made of FSC-certified material (meaning the paper was produced sustainably) containing 64 lined and 64 blank pages printed on 100 percent recycled paper. It comes in several color combos, depending on the size. The new RevolveR Sketch edition features 80 blank pages of acid-free white paper that flips to 80 pages of a paper with a dotted grid. The 5 ½” x 8 ½” Sketch version comes in orange/pink, blue/green, brown/bone, and grey/white combinations. The RevolveR Journal ECO Large retails for $18.00, the RevolveR Journal ECO Small for $12.00, and the RevolveR Sketch for $14.95.
