Inspiration Pad

It seems as though everyone, from poets to electricians, carries a notebook. It's no wonder; inspiration can strike anywhere. And as inspiring as a blank page in a notebook can be, there are times when the straight, monotonous lines seem to stifle creativity. Belgian designer Marc Thomasset sought to make the "anywhere" of inspiration to an "everywhere" with his Inspiration Pad.

There are a number of notebooks on the market right now (Moleskine, Field Notes), though they generally offer the same thing: lined or gridded pages. The Pad offers 32 pages of undulating, zig-zagging, and otherwise warped lines. The idea is that, while the ideas are yours, they sometimes need a little coaxing to really flourish. Grab a softcover Inspiration Pad from Thomasset's company, TM, for €14 (shipped worldwide). Buy.
