The “notebook kingdom” of Japan publishes all sorts of books & magazines on stationery, notebook strategies, planner tactics…there are even several books about the joys of four-color pens. There are books on notebook surgery and notebook combat written by notebook therapists. It’s a 手帳天国 (techou tengoku, notebook heaven).
In future posts I hope to get my hands on some of these fine publications & share them with you, but for now, please enjoy a little translation-poetry courtesy of amazon.jp & Google Translate.
