  • Explorer Notebook

    Explorer Notebook on March 24, 2014 Our inaugural Test Drive post comes from Alton, age 5, from Bayview in San Francisco. By far the most fearless foray into starting in on this particular book we’ve seen to date.

  • score

    score Open Notebook: Beethoven on April 9, 2014 To me, great classical music sounds like it simply came out like that, with no effort at all. So it’s a bit of a revelation to see this manuscript of Beethoven’s Piano trio in D Major, Op. 70, No. 1, practically overrun with corrections, annotations, and improvisations. I’m picturing Ludwig having a day filled with frustrations and breakthroughs over a …


  • For No Good Reason

  • Open Sketchbook: Ryan Jacob Smith

    Open Sketchbook: Ryan Jacob Smith is a tattoo artist based in Portland, Oregon. His tattoos look a lot like his drawings but on people’s body parts. I asked him to share some images from his sketchbooks and answer a few questions. PLUMB : What kind of notebooks do you use? RYAN JACOB SMITH : I use the blank 5-by-8-inch Moleskine journals that come in a pack of three. They travel really well and the size is perfect for me. It doesn’t take very long to finish one. Some journals are too big and have too many


  • Jason Polan

    Jason Polan Jason Polan Just Sent Over This Cantaloupe Drawing on April 9, 2014 Season 2 artist Jason Polan sent along this photo of what he is calling a “3-D drawing of a cantaloupe.” We are calling it amazing, and fitting for us because one of Jason’s upcoming Plumb notebooks features hand-drawn cantaloupe skin patterns on the back cover and even as interior lines. For all of your oversized fruit notes and drawings, of …

He is also a highly accomplished finder of amazing things on the street, from important but forgotten old books to overheard snippets of conversation. I asked him some questions about his rather deep relationship with notebooks. PLUMB: What …
