After some buzz and rumor milling about the a new journal-hybrid something-or-other under wraps at Kolo, the new archival-quality Kolo Essex Travel Book has finally arrived!
But it’s not just a “travel book”… because it’s great not only for trips, but for everyday use, as well. And it’s not just a “journal”… because you can show off photographs in it, or record your appointments. And it’s not just a “day planner” either… because you can choose to use it as a mini sketchbook, or to keep track of addresses and phone numbers.
In actuality, the Kolo Essex Travel Book is whatever you want it to be. By selecting from a variety of insert-booklets, you customize it according to the way you want to use it.
The Kolo Essex comes pre-loaded with a lined journal and small album with photo-sleeve pages. From there, you customize your Kolo Essex by adding another booklet(s) according to your preferences. You may choose from:
· photo-sleeve booklet
· lined booklet
· grid booklet
· blank booklet
· monthly accordion calendar (coming soon)
· weekly planner
· address booklet (coming soon)
What makes it possible for Kolo Essex owners to enjoy the flexibility of these many options is the unusual binding system: instead of bulky rings, an elastic loop system secures-in-place two or three different booklets, all within one Kolo Essex. Then -- presto change-o --these inserted booklets can be rearranged, removed and replaced quickly and easily. Brilliant!
The “shell” of the Kolo Essex Travel Book (front cover, back cover and spine) is covered with the same luxurious archival-quality book cloth used to make Kolo photo albums, in four color choices. The front cover has Kolo’s trademark cover window, so you can further personalize your Essex, exercise your creative impulses, express your individuality, and all that good stuff.
The Kolo Essex Travel Book is offered in two sizes – one small enough to tuck into a shirt pocket (which holds two booklets at a time), and one slightly larger (which holds three booklets at a time).
