For all you notebook lovers out there, the Morgan Library in New York City is running a special exhibition that shouldn’t be missed.
On display through May 22, 2011, the Morgan has pulled an incredible array of historical notebooks, from such figures as Charlotte Bronte, Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan and John Steinbeck. Leatherbound, spiral, enormous, unbelievably tiny, the exhibit drives home the point that the perfect notebook means something different to everyone.
Also on display are examples of notebooks sold through the ages, including a small notepad from the 1600’s with “erasable pages” – paper that was covered in a waxy surface that could be removed by rubbing with a cloth.
The exhibit only fills one room, but is definitely worth it if you’re willing to take time to appreciate each one.
