Reviewsday: A Novel Journal, Shakespeare Edition

IMG_8026

While in Louisville, Kentucky, recently, I visited a bookstore with a few friends, and there discovered a delightful and different journal: “a novel journal,” it’s called. It is one of several volumes published by Thunder Bay Press. Of course, the one I bought is Shakespeare-themed. It is beautifully and cleverly bound–notice the half note forming the first letter of “play” from the first line of Twelfth Night, above?

The frontispiece (above) and end piece also show attention to detail. But that’s just the beginning (see what I did there?).

The lines of the journal, provided for the journaling person to write on, are actual lines of Shakespeare’s plays–Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice, etc. The print is tiny, so they may not distract the writer, and selected lines are printed in a different color (see photo above). What a fun idea, and as a regular journaler, I had to have it.
