This beautiful new journal from popular paper-cut artist Nikki McClure is divided into four sections: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Each section features an opening list page, where seasonal plans can be written down, along with gentle suggestions of such activities as identify mushrooms, build a fire, make ice cream, or share a secret swimming spot. Gardeners can note plants they're growing or planning to grow, students can keep track of coursework, foodies can jot down when their favorites are in season, and anyone can organize plans and favorite seasonal activities. Scattered amongst the pages are full-page re-creations of Nikki McClure's art, including old favorites and brand-new works. Considering its seasonal divisions and its open-to-interpretation blank pages, the journal can also be used by those who want to keep an annual diary.
Nikki McClure's intricate and lovely papercut art has appeared in her popular calendars, journals, and books, including Awake to Nap, Things to Make and Do Journal, and others. She lives in Olympia, WA.
