taking note

i was reading old posts by michael bierut on design observer and came across one about keeping notebooks. i love seeing other people's notebooks. they are such a specific, personal measure of a person's work process. seeing the weight of 26 years, piled on a chair is both daunting and comforting.

i keep my notebooks in a similar way. more notes and numbers than ideas, but mine are not as linear or self-aware as bierut's. there is something spectacular about the fact that, from the beginning, he has numbered his books.
