Just light blue lines on white pages, The Urban Gridded Notebook really shouldn't be as fascinating as it is. But to map lovers, explorers and travellers everywhere, there is nothing like the lure of a city just waiting to be discovered. Do our favourite places look different without their street names? Can we even find them without numbered pages? But, like turning unexpected corners and wilfully getting lost in a maze of unknown streets and alleys, the satisfaction to be derived from meandering through The Urban Gridded Notebook is deep. Populate the pages with dreams and doodles.
