The Great Gatsby Notebook

When I saw this in Waterstones, my first reaction was WOW. Just the cover is gorgeous, and then there is the fact that The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books ever. To possess a notebook inspired from that was very tempting. It is bit steep at £6.99 for this quite slim notebook, but as I was spending vouchers, I decided to treat myself. 

The front cover is a replica of one of the popular editions of The Great Gatsby cover. 

Inside, left flap has this image. Very bookish, and very appealing to a library lover like me. 

But it's the pages where the real art comes in. The whole notebook is lined by tiny sentences. These lines are made up actual words, and if you want to attempt to read them, you will need a magnifying glass, though with good eyesight, you can probably squint and recognize a few words. It is very bookworm appealing. I haven't yet written in this journal, so can't confirm the quality, but the pages feel of good quality. 


  1. OHH Lines by words. How intriging. Have you attempted to read them? My guess is its lines from the actual story of the Great Gatsby. Have you ever gone to the Art store and made your own cover for a journal?

  2. I saw that in Waterstone's and fell in love but was turned off by the price... But tiny sentences!? That's really awesome!
