The Standard Memorandum Notebook

Inspired by pocket journals from the early to mid 1900's, The Standard Memorandum is designed as a way to chronicle a year of your life. Word. has once again teamed up with designer and illustrator Jon Contino to create a modern version of this storied notebook. The 2015 Standard Memorandum is the follow-up to last year’s exceedingly popular daily pocket journal, and it’s ready to tackle your new year. Just like the original, you simply jot down a line or two every day and are left with a memento you can save or pass down.

The project began after Jon discovered his wife's great-grandfather's pocket journals from the early 1900's that painted a detailed picture of his life. Born out of a desire to start doing this himself, Jon partnered with Word. Notebooks to create a journal like the ones he found. The Standard Memorandum is that journal, and your 2015 edition is here.
