Strokes of Genius Notebook
How to make a Strokes of Genius Notebook:
Step 1: Ask Neil Summerour to hand-letter the words Strokes of Genius.
Step 2: Take the hand-lettered art from Neil Summerour and cut white vinyl stickers.
Step 3: Go to Blanchette Press. Use paper left in the Blanchette inventory. In this case, it was beige 80-Ib cover, teal 90-Ib cover, and 100-Ib text stock. Hit the covers with two coats of black ink.
Step 4: Stick the stickers onto the notebook covers.
Step 5: Invite friends and fellow makers to paint them using traditional, hand-mixed, CMYK press inks. That means each notebook is different (so the ones you see pictured here may not be the ones you receive).
Step 6: Wait for ink to dry. This is the least exciting part.
