Scout Books

Taking notes and doodling is how most of us often spend our commutes to work and, if this is pertinent to you, then chances are you’ll be regularly on the lookout for awesome new notebooks to capture your random scrawls and note-taking exploits. Well, you can stop looking because we’ve found a brilliant brand that goes by the name of Scout Books who boast a, quite frankly, unparalleled collection of notebooks that we’ve fallen really rather hard for here at Coolector HQ.

Scout Books operate out of Portland, Oregon, and they are a collaborative notebook brand which means the work alongside a raft of designers, illustrators and other creatives to produce the cracking array of notebooks which are to be discovered on their website. Every element of the finished products from Scout Books are designed, edited, project-managed, printed, bound, packaged, marketed and sold from their South East Portland headquarters and if you’re in the market for new notebooks, we’re willing to wager you’ll find few better.

The ethos behind Scout Books is to make them affordable, eye-catching and good to the environment and they more than deliver on this triumvirate of objectives. Their notebooks are made from 100% recycled paper using vegetable-based inks and their source their raw materials from North America so you can definitely feel good about buying a notebook from Scout Books and not just because they look awesome. Take a look at some of our favourites below:

We’re perennially looking to source note-taking awesomeness here at Coolector HQ and whilst we hadn’t heard of Scout Books previously, they are definitely firmly on our radar now and we’ll likely be knocking on their door the next time we need a new outlet for our ceaseless doodling and jotting down of ideas.
