Do you journal? As in, do you spend time with yourself collecting your thoughts and putting them in some sort of order? I used to; for years, in fact. Starting at the age of six, I kept a diary. This continued (in one form or another) until recently. (My personal blog has been silent for awhile, to be perfectly honest.) However, I have started keeping a journal of sorts for myself. Handwritten and taken with me wherever I go. Going back to my roots, so to speak. This is how I check in with myself. This is how I honor myself. One small detail concerning my reawakened love for writing in an actual journal is my obsession with finding the perfect one to use. I am fastidiously particular and never settle when it comes to the journal itself.
Richenda Brim is the artist behind Richenda Brim Letterpress Studio & Bindery and her work sets the bar, friends. From small batch letterpress cards to handbound journals, Brim’s work is worthy of your innermost passions and dreams. These journals are the sort you buy with the intention of giving away and then you find yourself squirreling them away for yourself. (There is something to be said for that impulse, don’t you think?) Also, if you are in the Los Angeles area, Brim teaches non-adhesive book binding classes. Maybe we’ll run into each other there and truly live our March theme of “Community.”
