We work with Scout Books of Portland, Oregon to make each notebook here in the USA. 

Each limited edition notebook is signed, numbered, and packaged by hand by our non-profit partners.

We all love a good adventure.  Human beings are natural explorers. We wanted the front of the notebook to evoke that feeling. We drew inspiration from the ultimate frontier of exploration: space. The design pays omage to the Golden Record inscription carried into deep space by NASA’s Voyager 1.

Reading = exploring

Hi There! We're Mitch & Matt Bleistern. We're a father and son team who want to make a difference, so we've designed this limited edition notebook to raise awareness for literacy rates in the US. Join us in support of advancing literacy, reason, and compassion in the US.
