Edition #39 Notes
It's summer time! Which means many things, but around here I'm grabbing my notebook and mini board and going out to have a grand old time in the sun.
Dog Gone Summer was designed and screenprinted by my friend Dylan Goldberger. Dylan is an artist in Brooklyn who helped me with screenprinting the Abbott Road edition. He creates super detailed woodcuts, linocuts, and screen prints that regularly feature anthropomorphized animals in humorous scenes. And we're launching Dog Gone Summer on Go Skateboarding Day (AKA the summer solstice) because his love of dogs and skateboarding are prominent themes throughout his work.
The cover of Dog Gone Summer features dogs doing summer things, and inside you'll find an endsheet with lots of doggy essentials for making the most of each summer day. Grab a snack and your favorite writing instrument, and have a fabulous summer.
Fray level: Normal
Most Dapper Notes covers are made using fabric, which naturally frays with use. Each material behaves differently, and this meter will help you gauge how much fraying to expect from your notebook. Read more about fabric covers

Dapper Notes are the best quality pocket sized notebooks you can get. The textile cover and thread binding means the books will hold up through time. I love the thick paper as well; good for fountain pens.Cindy
