Observer's Notebooks

$ 18.95

A favorite companion for journeys far and near, and all your everyday observations.

I first bought an Observer’s Notebook to take on my favorite nearby waterfall trail. The pages are peppered with diagrams and charts of the natural world, and I thought this would be a way to inspire me to write while on the trail. Soon I found a reason to buy all six versions: the tree notebook to use for notes about my family tree, the home notebook to sketch plans and dreams for my future house, the butterfly notebook to record personal transformations as I chase goals.

Accented with charts of cloud formations, cross-sections of tree trunks, and diagrams of the night sky, the blank pages of these journals stand ready for sketchings, musings, and observations. The clothbound hard covers keep the pages safe and wear well with exposure, taking on the rain, dust, and marks of your excursions.

Each journal contains 160 lined pages (in 8 different line patterns), 8 inspiring graphics interspersed throughout, and an observation log at the back.


with recipe forms, jar labels, and equivalency charts, as well as guides for chopping and stacking firewood, canning fruits, and caring for houseplants.
