A story bowl for my husband, who is a notebook addict. Together we run a webshop with selected good quality notebooks, pens and pencils. In Dutch to write something down is “Noteer”. This rhymes with “Beer”, which means bear. Hence a story bowl with a bear sitting at a writing desk, surrounded by notebooks. If you are a connaiseur of notebooks, you might recognise some of the brands we have in stock such as Dingbats* (embossed animal on the cover), Bindewerk (elastic strap and rounded corners), Fantastic Paper (the one the bear is writing in, with a cover which folds back completely). Since completing the bowl our collection has expanded by several brands.

The windows in the side of the bowl add an extra dimension when you look through them.
