"The primary goal of a notebook is to get out of the way… to
disappear. It does this by perfectly fitting into your writing
situation. How accessible does it need to be? What notebook tangibles
do you need? How will it withstand a beating? By fitting into how you
write, a notebook becomes invisible. It wastes none of your time
because any moment you spend noticing the notebook is a moment you
could be noticing something else, and writing about it.
But that’s not what makes a notebook truly sexy…."
