When I met Kjell, founder of the ‘about blanks notebook’ I immediately loved his clever and inspiring idea. Kjell about his project:
“The idea of what would later become ‘About Blanks’ started a couple of years ago. It all happened at the library where I used to get fascinated by the looks, textures and smell of the covers of old books. I have been using sketchbooks my entire life, so it did not take very long until I decided to use a book cover of an already existing book to make my own sketchbook. Shortly after the first one, I made another one for a friend of mine, another one for my mom, another one for my aunt… Before I knew I found myself starting up a business!”.
