Before Breakfast Desktop Notepad: Pale Blue


A large desktop notepad with various options for organizing yourself, jotting down tasks, and sketching out ideas—anything that brings you inspiration. Featuring thick pale blue toothy paper with a top edge bound in bright green glue, this handmade notepad from London combines functionality with refined minimalist aesthetics.

Produced by Before Breakfast, a London-based stationery company, this brand takes its name from a quote in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” They believe, "The world that is your desk is made up of a number of objects you use, whether it is for work or for your studies. Stationery probably makes up the smallest objects in this world, but the possibilities you have with pen and paper are endless."

We are pleased to offer the option of a free handwritten message on one of our signature gold edged notecards. Enter your text in the "Click here to add any order notes or gift messages” box on the first page of checkout. Notecards are only available to certain products; anything shipped from our rubber stamp warehouse is not eligible for a handwritten notecard, but if you enter a message in the box at checkout it will be printed on the packing slip. 
These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.

We would be great together -
