The Art of Journaling: A Different Format



Most journals and notebooks are vertically oriented, but the Landscape Webnotebook is not. This Webbie is 8 ¼” x 5 ½” and opens horizontally.


Though the dimensions are the same as the regular Webbie, the Landscape version appears to be slightly wider on the short end, and shorter on the long end because of the spine being on the short end.


I am trying to decide how to use this book because the special format seems to lend itself to a special purpose. Don’t you think?


Lying open, it feels like there’s a lot of space to play with. I am thinking about using it as a super w-i-d-e sketchbook, or as a book of quotes – either handwritten, or collaged from words cut from magazines and junk mail.

How many new ways can you think of to use a journal in this format? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. When I saw this, I immediately thought of a sketchbook, FP friendly! Typically a travel book. I’m planning a trip soon. Guess what will be my next purchase? ;)

  2. Seems it might be ideal for a movie or photo-shot storyboard given the wide angle aesthetic of screens and panoramic cameras?
    Or, why not just turn a standard portrait style book sideways and use it landscape anyway? Is this just a solution in search of a problem?

  3. It’s a nice form factor, surely. With a lined guide sheet, one could write in it. With a grid, one could write in it. So. How about horizontal lines? A landscape reporter.
