Notebooks are probably one of the things that I have too many of… Nonetheless, I’m always looking for more. There’s a huge variety of ways that you could use notebooks so they end up being the easiest thing to hoard. I go through notebooks fairly often, I think. I like to have one in my bag all the time for on the go notes and then others for specific projects. So when I came across Papio Paper notebooks, I sort of fell in love. It was sort of love at first sight, to be honest. The minute I saw how gorgeous the cover designs were, I was floored. Today’s review is based on the Papio Press Tiger notebooks.
Papio Press have a huge variety of notebooks designs. These illustrations are done by the husband and wife team that run the company, which I think is pretty amazing. It’s one of those small businesses where you know that you’re supporting people’s dreams and livelihoods – and not just funding a corporate giant. Each illustration is absolutely gorgeous. I genuinely did struggle to pick just one favourite… So I just gave up! Perhaps a top ten of those I equally love would be more realistic.
Luckily I didn’t have to make that choice for this review as I was kindly sent a pair to review by Pocket Notebooks, who sent the tigers pack. These tiger illustrations are stunning. I absolutely love the detail in the designs, and the vivid colours. A black background really makes these colours jump out at you.
