If you need “an apple a day” to energize your body, you need “a word a day” to unleash your mind. It’s with that exact concept that Paper Pack created its notebooks. Open Paper Pack’s 1 Paragraph notebook and there is just space for one quote and a short description. In a crazy, fast-paced world, the notebook reminds you to write at least one sentence a day to help you remember the things you felt that day in simple terms. They also have the Art Paper Pack project, which they are doing in collaboration with the publishing company SSE Project. This project introduces talented, unknown illustrators to the rest of the world. Indiscriminate of age or nationality, the series has released notebooks with cover art from artists from the Americas, Europe and Asia. Their artworks have also been featured in the SSE Projects magazine, SSE ZINE. The most important element Paper Pack and SSE Projects look at when picking an artist is their portfolio. So far, the project has released 42 editions. The ones by Korean artists Shin Mo-rae and Kwak Myung-ju have become so popular that they’re now collector’s items. Jot down phrases that inspire you and keep them as memories.
