madding mission

jotter books 

The Madding Mission Jotter Book encourages hypergraphia. It thinks Plath writes awesome poems. Plath should have met Dickinson. Dylan Thomas too. Shelley. Poe. Lord Byron. Artaud and Baudelaire. Who can forget Hart Crane? Versus Eliot. John Berryman and Robert Lowell, who knew they joined these ranks? And of course, Celan.

Whitman, whose “right hand points to landscapes of continents, and a plain public road…. Perhaps it is everywhere on water and on land.” Together they would write great things, Plath thinks out loud, to no one in particular. She has brought her pen to paper. There is madness in the method, and sometimes a little bit or a whole lot of genius too.   

Each Madding Mission Jotter Book has 88 blank pages for your splendid journaling, with glossy covers and wacky titles. Choose any title from the following categories, and you’ll find it with a simple keyword search HERE.
