It is a bit more than that, with leanings towards a notebook or sketchbook but, without the year and month that you might normally expect in a diary. This bestows the freedom to start whenever you like and write in your own headings.
Designs will normally feature a section for each month [usually for a full year, but not always] and each section will be divided into 31 numbered spaces. Some come with illustrations, some have spaces for you to add your own. Almost any would make a great gift for a stationery addict or creative soul on your Christmas list as long as you choose with love and their individual preferences in mind.
Back in 1981, Rod McKuen published his own Book of Days. He did another in 1985 but examples are rare and expensive. Here is how he described the concept in '81 before adding a few sketches and a thought for each day.
"It can be a diary, a collection of ideas, a series of dates to be remembered, a means of putting order into an otherwise orderless life, a storehouse of maxims [as well as minimums] a secret place to treasure private thoughts or, a book to help rekindle the heart's or mind's memory. You will find no particular years set out in this book because the memories go back as far as my capacity to remember and the years covered are many. It is unfair to tell you where to begin or where to leave off."
Thanks for stopping by.
