People tend to rotate a notebook approximately 20 to 30 degrees, whether to write or draw, having this fact in mind, this series is designed to include lined pages at 27.55 degrees, slanted in the direction of a user’s hand placement on a notebook’s page – an opportunity to a somewhat different writing or drawing experience.
The artwork on the front side of this sleeve is inspired by idioms about thought and memory. It is created using riso printing technique. All notebooks are designed and handmade locally in Kuwait.
