If you travel to other cities a lot, you realize that no 2 cities are alike, from the types of buildngs they have to the way the roads are laid out, and that is reflected here in the Geografia City Ring Note Books, which showcases 4 different city plans on its cover.
Not content to just have a beautiful design, innovative printing techniques are employed to bring the city plans to life - the roads are carefully embossed while the rivers have shiny UV screen printing, giving this notebook a chic and fancy feel.
4 different cities are available, each with a different paper design inspired the city plan's aesthetic:
- Kyoto (3mm Grid) *SOLD OUT*
In the 8th century, the Emperor Kwanmu relocated the ancient capital from Nagaokakyo to Heiankyo; the land was selected based on Chinese Feng Shui, while the roads of the city were laid out in a grid with Suzaku Boulevard at the center.
- Washington (6mm Lined) *SELLING FAST*
The capital city of the United States of America, and hub of the federal government legislative, administrative and judiciary authorities. It is a man-made city painstakingly planned by French engineer Pierre Charles L’Enfant; while being the center of politics, the cityscape has an abundance of greenery, and is called the “park city”.
- Brasilia (Blank)
A man-made city that took 3 years to carve from unexplored land in 1956. The distinctive project, with its motif of the fuselage of a plane, was participated in by the urbanologist Lucio Costa and architect Oscar Niemeyer. In 1960, the capital was relocated from Rio di Janeiro; Brasilia was registered as a world heritage site in 1987.
- Canberra (10mm Dotted)
A man-made city planned by the architect Burley Griffin, who won the capital city design competition; in the middle of the city lies a lake named after him − Lake Burley Griffin.
