Edition #32 Notes
Over the last year I've been finding comfort in a daily chat with a group of people who've become some of my best friends, one of whom is the talented character illustrator Manuel Aguilera, also known as Manny.
Having comfort in mind, Manny designed the first food-themed Dapper Notes with vibrant and quirky pizza characters. From the pizza king to a crying onion topping, a Hawaiian slice and everything in between, this edition is the kind of notebook that'll put a smile on your face and probably also give you the urge to order a slice or three.
Inside you'll find Manny's original sketches, which we kept in black-and-white so you can color them in and show us how you pizza.
This limited edition contains: A pizza character pattern on the outside. Pizza dough brown bookcloth inside. An illustrated pizza endsheet ready for coloring in. 48 dot grid pages on 70lb smooth white. Basil green thread finish.
Also available: a companion pizza journal stamp for chronicling your favorite eateries.
Fray level: None
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
