An Icon Notebook for 8-Bit Thoughts
This 8-bit icon notebook is perfect for jotting down your 8-bit thoughts.
The desktop icon for documents is one that is instantly recognizable by just about anyone who has used a computer. Whenever you create a text file, you’re greeted by the familiar image of a page with one of its corners bent, and that’s precisely the icon used to make this fun notebook. Of course, nowadays our icons are attractively anti-aliased, but the 8-bit look has a definite charm to it, and that’s reflected in the pixelated look of the icon notebook.
It’s a neat-looking notebook, as the front page looks bent just like the document icon – except, instead of actually being bent, the notebook simply has one of its corners cut off diagonally. Writing in this notebook might feel a bit weird though, as the pages are all missing a corner. If the pages were printed to mimic the front of the notebook, it would look perfectly fine. However, the pages are actually blank.
On the bright side, blank pages – 80 of them, actually – mean that the notebook is perfect for capturing doodles of 8-bit video game characters. It would also be fun to do realistic sketches and studies in this notebook – maybe even schoolwork – as the cover would definitely not hint at the contents inside. The white cover looks quite inviting too, as if it’s meant to be covered in doodles and sketches.
I like the attention to detail in this product, like how the back of the notebook looks like the back of the bent-over page. It’s a convenient way to distinguish the front and back of the book, and it adds just that much more accuracy to the look of the thing.
If you’re looking for something to complement the icon notebook, there’s a matching icon set with 8-bit letters and envelopes. The hand icon coasters also follow a similar 8-bit theme with even more practical uses, while this 8-bit inspired wristwatch might turn you into a hot fashion icon.
