Norwood Creech: “At 56, I have returned to school (online) for a Master in Gallery & Museum Management. Just making/selling my art was not bringing in enough money to be sustainable. In my return to academia, my study skills were noticeably wobbly. Attending a workshop focusing on how to read and take notes helped me to get through the initial stages of how to retain what I read and take notes that matter.
When I first began taking notes during class, I used in a blank sketchbook. Because I prefer writing with fountain pens and color pens/pencils, I figured my fav paper could tolerant the ink and colors, and would inspire my academic engagement. Alas, after many notes, and notes and notes, I realized I needed some structure, i.e., lined paper.
In looking for lined notebook options, I stumbled across your notebooks online in my favorite art store, Dick Blick. And boy howdy am I grateful I did! Divine intervention!
Thank you for making such a great product... Spiral bound, plate finish, perforated pages, no bleed-thru when using fountain pens, and the colors pop on the optic white. Plus, the sticker tabs are much prettier than the white paper tape I had been creatively using as topic dividers.”
