In it's 9th year now, the Els & Nel Journal appears like an old acquaintance – a planner book, different from the mass productions, beautifully typeset, with many fine details, reasonable arrangement, made from nice materials... just what it should be like, to accompany us all over the new year.
Els & Nel are two graphic designers from the netherlands, who found and filled exactly that gap. The result is this Journal, self-published in edition of 1500 (numbered!) copies.
The journal shows all weekdays equally on the left page. Complemented by a squared page for notes and doodles on the right, which are adapted to seasonal changes by a subtle gradient. It has a hardcover with rounded corners and includes a ruler, ribbon bookmark and envelope. Additional note pages in the back for lists and ideas. And to keep an overview of your long term plans, there is a monthly booklet as well – this year on rose colored paper.
Offset printed and bound in the Netherlands. The book is Smyth Sewn, hardcover bound, completed with a black linen strip. The Monthly Booklet is saddle stitched with a bright red thread. Size is 17 × 24 cms, 128 pages, 64 sheets.
