In Greece, religion still holds an important role in everyday life. Even for those who might not be practicing orthodox Christianity, its references are strongly interconnected with pop culture and design. This awarded notepad’s typography is the one used in orthodox churches and scripts. It reads: “Yper Ygeias” which means for health. During Sunday mass, people can give the names of their ill loved ones in order to be read out “for their health”. What they do in “Hartovasilion” (the paper kingdom) is to promote Greek design by combining high-standard aesthetics with top-quality local production.
This is a “yummy”, easy to pack, notebook. Fill it in with your thoughts of delicious things or maybe recipes! The beautiful typography in the cover reads “Miam” which means yummy in Greek. The designer and maker Aris Sotiriou creates this unique series by etching into linoleum and printing in a small, antique press found in the flea market of Athens! How amazing is this?
The classic notebook that any Greek kid had in school is really similar to this one. It’s just that this series is a redesign of the classic notebook and it looks much cooler! What they do in “Hartovasilion” (the paper kingdom) is to promote Greek design by combining high-standard aesthetics with top-quality local production. This will be your one. Don’t think twice.
