To quote Herb Lester, these notepads inspire you to: “Warm your toes (whether you want to or not) at The Green Man Inn, catch up on work at The Overlook, or make friends at The Taft. Tend to a flesh wound at the Royal Imperial Windsor Arms, have sweet dreams at The Great Northern and enjoy the gentle art of murder at Bertram’s Hotel.”

Herb Lester is a company that publishes cleverly designed, well edited travel guides for places such as New York, Tokyo, Portland and (naturally) Outer Space. Their products can be found on their website or at MoMa and the New York Public Library, among other places.
