If you find yourself on a tech break in the near future—it's necessary, do one—but still need an outlet for all your brilliant ideas, put some pen to paper and get to work in a good old-fashioned notebook.
Luckily, Barnes and Noble has teamed up with graduate students from the Pratt Institute for a collection of notebooks, journals, pencil cases, and more that look way cooler than whatever iPad case you currently have.
The collection, "By Students For Students," was created for those in high school and college, but they really have universal appeal. It's the sixth time that the national bookseller has teamed up with the art school, where students are immersed in everything from design techniques to production to buyer presentation.
So students learn about commercial production, and you get a new notebook. Win-win? Yes, yes.
