To those who say bigger is better Studio Oh offers the scaled-down Compact Deconstructed Journal for your consideration. Like its full-size cousin, the compact version features fabulous artwork (in this case, the unique chalkboard artistry of Valerie McKeehan), a rough canvas cover that's soft to the touch and weathered on the edges, 192 lined pages and a unique ""exposed"" binding that allows the journal to open flat a full 180 degrees. But, because its smaller 5 x 7.25-inch size makes it highly portable, Studio Oh has added an elastic band closure to keep your doodling, class notes or inner-most thoughts secure while tucked away in a backpack, messenger bag, briefcase or carry-on. So, no matter where life's adventures may take you, the Compact Deconstructed Journal is ready to go along. ABOUT THE ARTIST: Chalkboard artist and typographer Valerie McKeehan has been hand-lettering and illustrating since childhood. A lifelong creative, her passion for commercial art began simply and without pretense: producing hand-lettered signs for her father's business. Whimsical and undeniably handcrafted, her designs are honest and authentic, at home with their imperfections and unique character. Working out of her home studio in Central Pennsylvania at a desk constructed by her husband, she lovingly creates each design entirely by hand, from sketch to slate, illustrating quotations by great authors and public figures or simply depicting everyday subjects that inspire her work (like coffee and cooking).
