My partner, Lauren, and I designed, letterpress printed, corner-rounded, and wire bound 50 notebooks for the Feedback Loop notebook project, sponsored by Mohawk Fine Papers and Felt & Wire. It’s a great project for a great cause. Be sure to check out all the fantastic notebooks, and don’t hesitate to purchase a few – all proceeds are donated to support the youth mentorship initiative School: by Design.
Super Exciting Bonus Material

In return, Smart & Wiley will give away a set of 10 letterpress printed proof postcards to one randomly selected “Liker.” But wait, there’s more! We will also choose our favorite comment and send the brilliant author a custom, one-of-a-kind, letterpress makeready notebook. Get to likin’ and don’t wait, we’ll announce the winners on September 29.
