Introducing BB Notebooks, a Brooklyn Based and Idlewild Co. collab


Last year, Brooklyn Based introduced a limited run of custom notebooks designed by Idlewild Co.

Whether you like to carry around a notebook to jot down ideas, write your “Morning Pages” à la Julia Cameron or keep a pandemic diary, this is a beautiful book in which to record your thoughts. Its designer, Katie Gastley, created a number of illustrations for Brooklyn Based over the years. (Does anyone out there have one of our totes? Katie designed those, too.) This time, she created a custom 120-page, 6″x8″ notebook for us through her line of paper goods, Idlewild Co. (Pay it a visit, her designs are gorgeous!)

You’ll appreciate the colorful nods to Brooklyn on the cover: the water towers, food halls, bookstores and prettier-than-in-real-life pigeons, along with the gold foil finishes. Plus, your purchase supports Brooklyn Based and helps us keep delivering the emails you love. The price is $30, including shipping to any state in the continental U.S. and a generous donation to keep Brooklyn Based coming in the challenging year ahead.
