Inspired by pocket journals from the early 1900s, The Standard Memorandum is designed to chronicle one year of your life. Word. Notebooks has once again teamed up with designer and illustrator Jon Contino to create a modern version of this storied notebook. The 2016 Standard Memorandum is the latest incarnation of the exceedingly popular daily pocket journal, and it’s ready to tackle your new year. Just like with the original, simply jot down a line or two every day for a year, and you'll be left with a memento you can save or pass down. It’s a year of your life on paper.

The Standard Memorandum project began after Jon discovered his wife's great-grandfather's pocket journals from the early 1900s, each of which painted a detailed picture of his life. Born out of the desire to start doing this himself, Jon partnered with Word. Notebooks to create a journal just like the ones he found. The Standard Memorandum is that journal, and your 2016 edition is available now.
