Edition #25 Notes

Designed in collaboration with Gustavo Jaimes, a tattoo and visual artist from Anaheim, California. Gus grew up next door to Disneyland, an inspiration that continues to show through with joy in his work. This edition was named in honor of Gus, his friendship, and family. I am always in awe of his kindness and creativity, and get as much inspiration from his designs and photography as I do from his actions.

The design for Jaimes was created from Gus's tattoo flash sheets, and printed onto a thick pleather material that looks and feels like the real thing. 

You can catch Gus in a weekly hangout with VGHC's Hammer Time podcast, hear his rolling laughter, and gather some positive energy to start your weekend every single week.

(Also available in Junior size)

This limited edition contains: A tattoo flash sheet pattern on the outside, eggplant bookcloth inside, with a screen-printed lokta plant paper endsheet, 48 graph pages on 70lb smooth white, and a purple thread finish.

Edition fray: Most Dapper Notes covers are made using fabric, which naturally frays with use. Each material behaves differently, and this meter will help you guage how much fraying to expect from your notebook.

Dapper Notes notebooks are

Fabric Covered

Every notebook cover is made from two materials: a good looking fabric on the outside, backed by book cloth inside. These covers are just the nicest, and oh so very showoff-able.

100% Handmade

Created from scratch in the USA, one-by-one, with focus on the details. I glue the covers, stitch the binding, trim the corners, package and mail them to you myself.

Thread Bound

Wax-coated linen thread is stronger than staples, and these 3.5 x 5.5" durable notebooks will last a lifetime to hold and tell your story inside.
