Edition #26 Notes
The design for NY Rhapsody was born from an illustration I made for an award-winning short film by the same name. Sal and Irwin asked me a while back to create a poster for Sal's silent film: a love letter to New York City and the inspiration it brings to all creators.
This love and inspiration are needed now more than ever, and I hope these little notebooks help inspire you to do good and be good.
(Also available as a keychain-sized notebook, and a film poster)
Fray level: Low
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
