A little passion of mine

I love to do my creative writing by hand sometimes. It just gives me a different creative flow and I just love the feeling of it. Of real ink, dripping from a pen, the roughness of good paper, watching the pages fill up with small handwriting, I just love to do it.
Needless to say I'm a total dork for pretty books to write in. It's a bit of a double edged blade for me because if it's too pretty, I'm always waiting for the perfect story to write in it and that story never comes and they sit around empty, but I still love to have them around.

In case you have a similar passion I found an awesome bookmaker in Tel Aviv who ships around the world (and at reasonable prices, over here I couldn't afford that kind of quality). Her books are a world of beautiful (and perfect as gifts), the only drawback being that they are designed to write hebrew in them so they open the wrong way around from our perspective (but since they can be personalized, maybe they can be bound the other way round too).

The homepage is a little eso, but the books are dreamy :)
