If you know someone who loves the scene, then these Northern Soul-themed notebooks and journals might make affordable gifts.
Not that there is anything radical about the design. Far from it. These are typical lined notebooks or journals, sized around 6x 9 inches and containing 200 pages of lined paper. Useful, you might say.
But the covers are the selling point here. Imagery from classic clubs and the scene itself across the range of notebooks, which instantly give them appeal to fans of the scene/genre.
Whether that’s for writing down your latest wants list or writing down your shopping list is up to you. At the end of the day, everyone loves a notebook for scribbling in, even in a world of smartphone organisers and notifications.
The covers feature classic clubs such as the Wigan Casino, Manchester’s Twisted Wheel and The Torch in Stoke-on-Trent, as well as more generic covers featuring vinyl and patches. Some are pictured here, the rest can be seen on the retailer’s site.
As for price, each one sells for around £6, which makes them a cheap gift for anyone – or even a small treat to yourself if you are lacking a notebook right now.
