Themed Journals – Yay or Nay?

Stephanie

I’ve reviewed quite a few different journals over the last few years and have noticed an increase in the production of themed journals from a variety of vendors. When I see them, I often wonder how well received they are by the buying public. Part of me feels as though they are gimmicky and it’s hard for me to wrap my head around utilizing a format that is so limiting. yet another part of me feels as though if a journal like this gets someone writing at all… then it’s a good thing.

Have you ever tried one? Finished one? Know anyone that used them? I’m really curious…. The closest thing to a themed journal that I use is a plain lined journal that I call my “Book of Lists.”

The Quo Vadis Memoriae journals are not currently imported into the US but are available in Canadian specialty shops and also online in the UK.

  1. I rather dislike themed journals, and the vast majority of my customers do as well. The repeated line is that it’s always someone else trying to shoehorn the way they think/express themselves.

  3. I find it easier to have a few blanks and, if I need to, slip a custom guide template under the current page. Takes about ten minutes to draw up whatever I need in Illustrator…
