Inspiration Notebook
This notebook is printed with nonstandard line patterns for inspiration in thinking outside the box.  Frex, there are swirly topographical lines, pages with upswept lines, etc.  I can think of at least three ways this would be useful:

* brainstorming ideas in a business meeting where you really need an unconventional solution to a problem

* as a framework for art

* as a framework for shape poetry

But given the option of modern technology, this product would be more useful as a set of image files that could be reprinted as needed.  In hardcopy it's ideal for fieldwork but much less replicable.

I think it's a good idea. There's a really popular exercise, I think it shows up in Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, where you draw a blob or something and then trying to figure out what it could be. I think on a subconscious level having different line shapes will get the viewer thinking of what to draw or write, and I like the idea of having a journal which might be more fun to look back in.
