A Very Cool Journal Company Here In Portland

I am promoting a very cool, very GREEN business here in Portland Oregon, Ex Libris Anonymous.  They take old books that are beyond reselling status that have good hardcovers, and turn them into wonderful writing or sketching journals!

From their website:

“not unlike a snowflake, a soft puppy, or a slice of warm pie, every journal we make here at ex libris anonymous is one-of-a-kind, unique, and completely unrepeatable experience. we start by exhaustively searching for the most interesting recycled books we can find, and after carefully curating our favorites, we salvage the covers (and selected pages) of the lucky book.

our next step is to fill the journal with around 75 pages of blank, 24/60#, acid-free paper (which makes for great journaling or sketching paper). we then interleave actual pages from the book right alongside the blank journal paper.  you’ll be amazed at all the lovely stuff in these old books — beautiful cover pages, delightful illustrations, half-filled library cards, cool old maps, personal inscriptions for mysterious previous owners — with every page you turn, it’s like getting the prize at the bottom of the cereal box. (so really, it’s like getting a whole bunch of prizes from a whole bunch of cereal boxes).”

I know I want one very soon — Maybe this Sneeches cover from Dr. Seuss!
