You’re the Hipster


If you like indie music, mismatched clothing, artisanal coffee, piercings, over-sized sunglasses, and anything ironic, you may be a hipster. If you were lucky enough to get this limited-edition notebook, you might or might not be a hipster, but you are definitely one lucky print lover.

Multi-talented designer Miltos Bottis uses his skills in silkscreen printing, layering transparent fluorescent inks over the black-and-white fish photo, to create a unique piece for writing and sketching.

The selection of Curious Matter in Goya is definitely a choice any hipster would make. The paper is made out of starch extracted from potato waste. For the texture freaks among us, the feel of it is an experience … like touching compressed sand that’s been infused with baby powder.

Another out-of-the-mainstream element is the binding – a hand-sewn Japanese style that adds even more of that not-of this-consumer-world bespoke quality we love.
