+$Every creative needs a good notepad, whether you want to create a new标志设计+$, writing a speech or simply want to indulge in some涂鸦艺术+$. There's many around to choose from, and, in recent years, they've come a long way from simply being blank pages bound between two bits of card. Nowadays you see all manner of features added to inspire and aid creatives productivity.
+$And The Dreamday Pattern Journal is no exception. Branded 'a new concept in luxury stationery' by publisher Laurence King, there are four to collect, each with a visual theme associated with a particular period and place, including medieval Paris, Renaissance Florence, 1920's Manhattan and Mid-Century Scandinavia.
+$There's no denying these journals have an air of luxury about them. Each one has a brightly coloured pattern on the cover and the pages inside are thick and smooth, although the marker we used bled through and was visible the other side.
+$For every 5-10 blank pages, there's a pattern for colouring-in or doodling. And there are some incredibly beautiful and intricate designs. That said, some of the detail is a tiny, and we mean really tiny. So much so that you'll need a seriously sharp pencil or fine pen to fill them in. Certain patterns are also repeated throughout the journal and we would've liked to see a a wider range of designs, but this doesn't take detract anything from the illustrations featured.
+$Dubbed a 'colouring-in notebook', this does both well. A nice choice for those designers embracing the adult colouring-in craze and on the hunt for a new journal.
