As lovers of paper and creative instruments, we fancied creating a prestige notebook, just because.
The creative idea behind this first notebook is a tribute to the Venetian Renaissance printer Aldus Manutius, a great humanist and brilliant publisher.
The personal and iconic emblem of Aldus (for bibliophiles, printers and designers mostly) consists of a dolphin (speed) and an anchor (stability). It is sometimes accompanied by its motto "Festina lente" (Make haste slowly).
His work was the starting point to create a singular object that embodies the Art of Thinking and the luxury of writing in the 21st century. The cover is dressed with a paper that evokes fabric, as is sometimes used in fine editions. As the notebook was primarily intended for writing, its pages are printed with fine lines and made of a soft and thick paper that makes the writing particularly comfortable.
This notebook has been conceived as an invitation to put down own's thoughts, projects and creations with pleasure and finesse.
