Volume 223 celebrates Woody Guthrie and his immutable optimism.
Woody is often depicted in sepia tones reminiscent of the Dust Bowl, but his artistic palette extended much further. He filled composition notebooks and day planners with sketches, poems and paintings on his countless journeys. His art was playful and vibrant, despite its often gritty content. He described his fusion of old compositions and new ideas as a mashup of “what is” and “what could be.” Woody believed we could be better, and used his creations to inspire people to believe the same.
This limited edition A5 composition book features 160 pages of high-quality, 80 GSM ruled paper. Each book is sewn-bound and finished with a cardstock cover featuring a design inspired by one of Woody’s personal composition books.
