Carousel


When The D came up, he brought with him a present from a famous niche bookstore back home, Books Actually.  Being very familiar with my notebook fetish, he found an adorable blank notebook that would also be of some significance to me - the book has a darling print of a birdcage on one cover and a bird's nest on the other.  Shortly after he met me, The D got a drawing of a birdcage tattooed on his ankle.  Not because of me - the timing was random and I certainly hope the birdcage doesn't represent me but you know, meaningfulness and things.

The covers are also made of a lovely cream coloured card, and the paper, bound old-school style with string, is very fine and has barely any teeth - perfect for ink drawings.  The other day, inspired by the random idea of a carousel of wild ponies in a forest, I let my fingers do the walking and made a little doodle.  I think it has a quality that fits the whimsical spirit of the book, don't you?
