book / Essential Travel Companion

'book' is your essential travel companion.
it marks a counterpoint to the calculating, digital assistants from which we are surrounded so often. impressive through its simplicity and intuitive, classic handling it is the perfect mate for the romantics among the travellers. 'book' saves experiences in an individual form.
taking away and leaving behind - we often feel the need of taking something from a special place or want to leave something behind.
noble, long-lasting materials make 'book' a durable friend.
the freedom of empty pages, the privilege to fill them with something nobody else could create, is the esprit of this concept.
