This notebook anthology is a tribute to the handwritten poetry of Berlin’s Whisky & Words community. Over the course of a year, poets, writers and wordsmiths have contributed to several notebooks with their stories and poems, which were circulated between the performers each month at Keith bar in Neukölln. A few of these words have been selected for this faithfully printed edition in a unique notebook anthology that serves for reading, writing and creating. With poems and stories by: Tuli, H. L. Reid, Alex Rezdan, Kiana Minkie, Ida Loggert, J.B., Nesrin Kozan and Belle Tohrp.
You can also get a copy at the monthly Whisky & Words Events.

One of the things I really enjoy about this notebook is the paper quality, the weight and surface. It has held up very well, weather I have saturated it with wet or rubbed in dry, there is also minimal bleed-through. I just love the smooth surface, and how nicely my pen glides across the surface.
Ich bin als Berlinerin immer auf der Suche nach berlin-made Geschenken und Mitbringseln. Seltsamerweise führen aber viele Läden in der “Stadt der Kreativen” ausgerechnet die gleichen globalen Designobjekte wie Shops in London oder Tokyo. Berlin Notebook mag ich, weil es in Berlin entworfen und produziert wurde. Das Logo erinnert mich an die Berliner Straßenschilder. Als Notizbuch nutze ich es inzwischen selbst gern. Denn es passt selbst in die kleinste Handtasche und ist immer griffbereit, wenn mir unterwegs etwas einfällt.
I always buy these notebooks for my friends. It is a great gift and also a good tool for daily life. I love the paper and its structure. Size fits great into every bigger pocket or small bag. I never had any problems with the seller, very responsible and good delivery. Items always arrived in good condition.
Tolles Format (passt perfekt in meine Handtasche), tolles Konzept (Instagram-kampagne), tolles Design (Typo!) und last but not least tolle Papierqualität, perfekt auch für Bleistiftskizzen (ideale Papierstruktur innen wie auch außen – Karton altert sehr schön). Habe mich dieses Mal gleich für das 3-pack entschieden – zwei für mich und eins zum Verschenken! 😉
The holy grail for many eco-enthusiasts is recycled paper which can handle a fountain pen. Well, here it is! It’s smooth, it’s ivory, and it does the job rather well. A revelation indeed.
