MUJI pulp paper, can't you hear what I'm telling you?
I LOVE YOU
c 8.3" x 11.4"



8.3" x 5.8" Muji pulp sketchbooks are a great format
for Speed Paste Ideas. I work single sided so I can
slice out pieces if need be. I can't get into making
them precious art objects, though the random book layout
and feel is pretty tight.

They are the Archie Digest size
compliment to the Flirting Scholar 6 foot scrolls.

extraordinary circumstances seemed to apply on
