"THIS book belongs to," reads the frontispiece of the little red diary, followed by the words "Florence Wolfson," scrawled in faded black ink. Inside the worn leather cover, in brief, breathless dispatches written on gold-edged pages, the journal recorded five years of the life and times of a smart and headstrong New York teenager, a girl who loved Balzac, Central Park and male and female lovers with equal abandon...The diary was a gift for her fourteenth birthday, on August 11, 1929, and she wrote a few lines faithfully, every day, until she turned 19. Then, like so many relics of time past, it was forgotten... for more than half a century inside an old steamer trunk, plastered with vintage travel stickers that evoke the glamorous golden age of ocean liner voyages. The trunk in turn languished in the basement of 98 Riverside Drive... until October 2003, when the management decided it was time to clear out the storage area." --The New York Times Brought to you by The Ice Plant in collaboration with Shopsin's General Store, this charming, pint-sized and extremely well-designed diary, inspired by a 2006 story in The New York Times, lets you keep track of your life with just a few lines every day for five years. Each page of the diary is devoted to one day of the year and subdivided into five sections-so that as time goes by, past entries can be read as new ones are written. Clothbound in delicate, nubby pinstripes with a red ribbon bookmark, it is designed so that it can be started on any day of the year, even on a leap year. In the back of the diary are pages to record books read and places traveled. An ideal gift for sophisticated nostalgics, new parents, dreamers, schemers and plain old lovers of good design.

This is an amazing diary designed by the artist Tamara Shopsin. I love the look and feel of the book in my hands - nice and heavy, and it's very well made. The paper is a good weight for writing too. You get a page a day, which is split up into five lots of five lines – one for each year. There's a great map at the back based on the design of Buckminster Fuller, which splits the world up into triangle shapes – if you cut this up and glued it together it would make a dodecahedron. At the back is also a booklog for listing the titles and authors of books you read.
