Edition Notes 

This special edition is a collaboration with Gustavo Jaimes to celebrate the launch of his brand new website. Gus is the tattoo artist behind the flash sheet inspired Jaimes edition. In addition to tattooing, Gus is also a coffee lover, hockey player, and visual artist. 

This time around we focused on coffee as the central theme, and Gus designed eight caffeine-inspired elements that make up the cover's pattern.

This is a timed edition. All notebooks will be created after pre-orders close on Friday, August 28th, 2020. Get yours at

Cream of the Crop contains: A coffee-inspired illustrated pattern on the outside printed onto faux leather, tbd inside, with a teal onion-skin endsheet, 32 graph pages on 70lb smooth white, and a black thread finish.
