Did you see this over on the Inside Out blog? Instead of offering blank pages on which to scribble, the Walls Notebook offers 80 pages of New York city walls to spark your creative imagination.

The official website reads -

‘Not ready for jail, fines or involuntary community service, but still want to vandalise somebody’s wall? With the Walls Notebook you can exercise your creative mischief on 80 untouched New York City walls without fear of repercussions or reprisal’. !!

Great for the budding grafitti enthusiast! But mainly it just seems like such a fun way to free up your ideas… because sometimes it’s so hard to start drawing on an ominous blank page… ya know?

You can buy one here for just US$16.95. More info and pics here (including a cute little section where you can draw directly onto the Wall Notebook pages on their website…). This amazing little design was brought to you by US design duo the. (Yeah, they’re just called ‘the.’)

Thanks Grace Lee at Inside Out for this tip-off!



PS) After perusing their website, it seems that ‘the.‘ are clearly design geniuses. Their other creations include the often-blogged Anti-Theft Lunch Bag, the Speak-er (picture below – love it), and the fabulously simple New Lamp, based on my fave fave fave example of contemporary architecture, the New Museum in NYC!

Sheesh. These guys should be millionaires by now.

Speak-er by the.

New Lamp by the. I WANT ONE. Why is it US$1200?
