Traveler's Notebook Passport Size - custom notebook pocket inserts - stamps

I received this great sample of Traveler's Notebook passport size from Midori in end Feb 2009. This product is to be launched in March following the success of its large size version. I've put it into test and made some customization for the exhibition in Tokyoto be held between 19th March and 22nd March 2009 in Spiral Market.

 

A few things were customized in this passport size notebook: The cover was painted with UNI's POSCA marker following a theme from old Cezh propaganda for fire safety. You can see on the cover a fireman squeezing the neck of a fire chicken. POZOR means "Attention!" in Cezh. The passport size notebook also comes in various refills for you to choose from, each version's (blank, square, ruled) refill cover resembles a typical passport cover's color. But I didn't like the dull colors so I made my own "passport" cover out of a logo I created, the heading "UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT STATIONERY AND PHOTOGRAPHY" :).

 

Since Midori's Traveler's Notebook has a flexible refill system, you can add anything you like as long as the size fits. So I made an insert full of pockets so that I can file away my collections during travel. They are classified into 4 categories: Photografie (photograhs), Kvitance (receipts), Znamky (stamps) and Tags (well, tag).s

 

To see what's written inside the notebook itself you have to go to see the exhibition, but here's the details of the pocket insert I made.

 

A "Photografie" pocket to store Fuji Instax mini sized photos.

 

A "Kvitance" pocket to store travel receipts.

 

A "Znamky" pocket to store my stamp collection.

 

A "Tags" pocket to store anything from luggage tag to bookmarks.

 

You see, if you keep track of what's going on in this blog, you've probably already noticed something big about travel, photography and journaling all along. KOLO launched Essex, Midori launched Traveler's Notebook passport size. AND I'm gonna have fun with fellow readers and customers in our 2009 June's Travel Photo Cafe! Stay tuned!
