People have been asking for more details about the Maker’s Notebook. It hasn’t been officially released yet and is not yet available in the Maker Shed (our new online store), so all will be revealed after we’ve recovered from the most amazing Maker Faire to date.

In the meantime, here are a few more pics from the Notebook Modding Station that Becky Stern and I (and some awesome volunteers — Hey Alex. Hey Matt!) ran in the Maker Shed at the Faire. This maker (whose name I didn’t get) sat down and went to town on his book, adding a pen holder at the top, a button and string closure, a pocket in the back for his business cards, lots of stickers from the Maker’s Notebook sticker sheets, and stamps from the Ink Blot Experiment line, kindly provided to us by Stampington. In the coming weeks, we’ll have a webpage for the Notebook with images of other people’s modded books and how-tos on adding your own pockets, closures, making your own stamps, stickers, and other add-ons.

Here are a few pages from the Reference section to give you an idea of what’s included:

    Me too! Looks like it would be a great notebook to have. i don’t know what stickers are all on the stickers included, but it would be cool to have various stickers on there to go with the various designs we would make in such a notebook. btw – any pictures on a complete sticker page to see what stickers are included?

    Any chance of pre-ordering? Is there a predicted date when they’ll be available?

    One additional thing, this reminds of the physics notebooks I’ve seen at university. Looks like they’re about the same price, although the physics notebooks don’t have the quick reference charts.
