2. Notebooks

A notebook (also known as a notebook, notebook, notebook, or notebook) is a book or stack of paper pages that is often lined and used for recording notes or memos, other writing, drawings, or scrapbooks.

History

Early history

During the 14th and 15th centuries notebooks were often made by hand at home by drawing on them in groups which were then tied at a later date.

The pages are blank and each note taker must draw a line on the paper.

Creating and keeping notebooks is an important information management technique so that children learn these skills in school.

Legal pad

According to legend, Thomas W. Holley of Holyoke, Massachusetts invented the legal pad around 1888 when he pioneered the idea of ​​collecting all grades, various types of low-quality waste paper from various manufacturers, and combining them for sale as compresses at an affordable and reasonable price.

In about 1900, the latter became traditional yellow modern law books when local judges requested that the margin be drawn on the left side of the paper.

This is the first legal notebook. The only technical requirement for this type of writing instrument to be considered a true “legal notebook” is that it must have a margin of 1.25 inches (3.17 centimeters) from the left edge.

Here, the margin, also known as the descending line, is the space used to write notes or comments.

Legal notepads usually have a rubber binding at the top rather than spiral or sewing bindings.

In 1902, J. A. Birchall of Birchalls, a stationery shop based in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia, decided that the elaborate method of selling writing paper in folded stacks of “four sheets” (four sheets of paper or parchment folded into eight sheets) was not feasible. efficient.

As a solution, he glued a stack of paper that was torn in half, supported by a piece of cardboard, creating what he called the “Silver City Writing Tablet”.

Binding and cover

Principal types of binding are padding, perfect, spiral, comb, sewn, clasp, disc, and pressure, some of which can be combined.

Binding methods can affect whether a notebook can lie flat when open and whether the pages are likely to remain attached.

The cover material is usually distinct from the writing surface material, more durable, more decorative, and more firmly attached.

It also is stiffer than the pages, even taken together.

Cover materials should not contribute to damage or discomfort.

A journal writing book.

It is frequently cheaper to purchase notebooks that are spiral-bound, meaning that a spiral of wire is looped through large perforations at the top or side of the page.

Other bound notebooks are available that use glue to hold the pages together; this process is “padding.”

Today, it is common for pages in such notebooks to include a thin line of perforations that make it easier to tear out the page.

Spiral-bound pages can be torn out, but frequently leave thin scraggly strips from the small amount of paper that is within the spiral, as well as an uneven rip along the top of the torn-out page.

Hard-bound notebooks include a sewn spine, and the pages are not easily removed.

Some styles of sewn bindings allow pages to open flat, while others cause the pages to drape.

Variations of notebooks that allow pages to be added, removed, and replaced are bound by rings, rods, or discs.

In each of these systems, the pages are modified with perforations that facilitate the specific binding mechanism’s ability to secure them.

Ring-bound and rod-bound notebooks secure their contents by threading perforated pages around straight or curved prongs.

In the open position, the pages can be removed and rearranged.

In the closed position, the pages are kept in order.

Disc-bound notebooks remove the open or closed operation by modifying the pages themselves.

A page perforated for a disc-bound binding system contains a row of teeth along the side edge of the page that grip onto the outside raised perimeter of individual discs.

Preprinting

Notebooks used for drawing and scrapbooking are usually blank.

Notebooks for writing usually have some kind of printing on the writing material, if only lines to align writing or facilitate certain kinds of drawing.

Inventor’s notebooks have page numbers preprinted to support priority claims.

They may be considered as grey literature. Many notebooks have graphic decorations.

Personal organizers can have various kinds of preprinted pages.

Uses

Artists often use large notebooks, which include wide spaces of blank paper appropriate for drawing.

Similarly composers utilize notebooks for writing their lyrics.

Lawyers use rather large notebooks known as legal pads that contain lined paper (often yellow) and are appropriate for use on tables and desks.

These horizontal lines or “rules” are sometimes classified according to their space apart with “wide rule” the farthest, “college rule” closer, “legal rule” slightly closer and “narrow rule” closest, allowing more lines of text per page.

When sewn into a pasteboard backing, these may be called composition books, or in smaller signatures may be called “blue books” or exam books and used for essay exams.

Various notebooks are popular among students for taking notes.

The types of notebooks used for school work are single line, double line, four line, square grid line etc.

These notebooks are also used by students for school assignments (homeworks) and writing projects.

In contrast, journalists prefer small, hand-held notebooks for portability (reporters’ notebooks), and sometimes use shorthand when taking notes.

Scientists and other researchers use lab notebooks to document their experiments.

The pages in lab notebooks are sometimes graph paper to plot data.

Police officers are required to write notes on what they observe, using a police notebook.

Land surveyors commonly record field notes in durable, hard-bound notebooks called “field books.”

Coloring enthusiasts use coloring notebooks for stress relief.

The pages in coloring notebooks contain different adult coloring pages.

Students take notes in notebooks, and studies suggest that the act of writing (as opposed to typing) improves learning.

Notebook pages can be recycled via standard paper recycling. Recycled notebooks are available, differing in recycled percentage and paper quality.
