  1. Could do without that huge fuckoff advert on the front/back.

    I’ll stick with Mujis unbranded dotted grid notebook.

  2. grids are the best for taking notes. love them for sketching too.

    james, does it really matter what the back of the notebook looks like? It’s the back…

  3. wow! I want these nano nbooks

    I am already subscribed to RSS. What do I need an email subscription for?

  4. @Evgeny
    You don’t need an email subscription but it will increase your chances of winning since it’s another entry.

    Everyone is eligible to win, no matter where you are in the world.

  5. A combination of grids and lines sound like an interesting evolution. I’ve mainly used graph paper to draw wireframes & generally draft things with some form of mathematics, but I usually write on something else.

    I am curious too, how do you track the users who sign up by RSS? I am but I never gave my e-mail address or anything like that.

    I’m a new reader of AisleOne (I started with your previous article, “The Brilliant work of Jean Widmer”) and look forward to reading more of your material. I will contribute to the conversation when I can 🙂

    I’m hoping my comment posts this time!

  6. I’ve been following the site for over a year now, Antonio, and it’s always been a great source of inspiration and helped me through school projects. Thanks!

  7. I’d love to receive one of the notebooks.
    Your site rules. I pass it on to all my design friends. Cheers!

  8. Do you know what could be a great idea?
    Send one of those to spain, we would be able to take notes in the Economical meeting where Sarcozy has let us one of their chairs…
    Please, think about it!

  10. i could wax lyrical about the greatness of these notebooks….

    but unfortunately… i have work to do…
    i do LOVE them though

  11. I would definitly love this. Im from Singapore and have been following your site for ages.. GREAT STUFF!

  12. Pick me pick me *jumps up and down*

    Also, my security word was “kerning” but I think someone actually needs to go in there and fix the kerning – it was a little off.

  13. @Jake
    Thanks for being such a dedicated follower! It’s very much appreciated.

    Unfortunately I have no control over the kerning in the CAPTHCA words.

  14. I have heard a lot about this brand. Like its paper template (free download at its website) very much.

  15. Well, since I’m already subscribed to the RSS and the emails, the pretty much only way of winning is posting here!

    Good luck!

  16. Hy, great thing!
    Here in germany we have not such stuff (not that I know)
    So, I hope to win and can write something about that! Would be great.

  17. i have a thing for notebooks, got like 2 or 3 of them in use at any time, and starting a small collection. would be nice to see these slinky doane notebooks on my desk :]

  18. Nice site!!! I was already subscribing to update e-mails anyway… no harm to comment and give another try to win this useful price.
    Congrats for your work.
