dodopad academic diary, 3 Aug 2009
I purchased the Dodopad academic diary for 08 -09 and really enjoyed using it. It brought a small shaft of sunshine, 'lightness' and fun into what otherwise were dry and extremely tedious meetings. I found it to have 'soul' and 'individuality' amongst the usual dour, 'straight' academic diaries. I was very pleased to be able to buy the diary again for 09 -10. It is 'functional' - having much space for notes in meetings/ reminders/lesson notes/addresses etc and the perforated corners make it easy to find the current date/week. I would recommend this diary for teachers/lecturers who 'dare to step out from between the regular, mass produced, drab, navy/black covers'. The design/humorous quotes are well considered and, as I discovered later, it is made locally by a small firm in Cornwall where I live...so I am also supporting local designers and manefacturers which is a bonus! I also have the Dodo recipe 'scrapbook' and have bought these as gifts for friends.
