Edition #23 Notes
The cover for Start Today is a fabric designed by artist and activist Lisa Congdon. Her work has an inviting bright palette, and when I saw this fabric pattern I knew I had to turn it into a Bookhead Club edition.
I admire Lisa's designs not only for her visual style, but more so for the ideas carried throughout her work. She makes it her mission to uplift both socially and emotionally, and designs around phrases like "make your own path," and "use your creative power for good".
To that end, Start Today invites you to carry on the message, open a blank (or lined) page, and make today the day where you start something new.

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
