Maybe those were the only options for journaling in the 1970s... fountain pen vs. ballpoint, lock-and-clasp diary vs. spiral-bound. Hmm, lined or blank paper? Woo-hoo.
I was in a scholarly session in February at a conference at Yale called "The Past's Digital Presence," and the presenter mentioned that the best-selling book category of the entire 20th century was blank bound books to be used as diaries.
But, that was so last century. People, the digital revolution has given journaling a huge kickstart and I think we can do far more to inspire YW than to show a collection of colored pens and different kinds of notebooks.
