Notebook High Art

Apparently these dowdy notebooks from the days of Natraj pencils, Eagle drawing books and Ajanta erasers are hip...or atleast the covers are. Where were these people when I was growing up?...when the only way of making these notebooks halfway presentable was to cover them with brown paper and sticking equally boring b/w labels on them.

I used to love covering my books with brown paper (plastic coated ofcourse) and feel rather sad for te new generation that uses these fancy books and rarely covers them coz they come monogrammed with the school's logos!
