If you're in search of your next great idea and don't happen to be sitting under an incandescent lightbulb suspended in mid-air, maybe the Inspiration Pad can help. Breaking all the rules of the college-ruled, this notebook looks like it contains Tim Burton's, or maybe Albert Einstein's, interpretations of lined paper. Try scribbling, doodling, or just staring at the blank page in front of you a little differently, and you never know what kind of genius might emerge. I think mine would manifest as something like this:

$$$Mr. Jennifer Aniston$$$

The Inspiration Pad comes with 48 pages of paper, each facing pair lined with a different thought-provoking and trippy pattern. Notebooks are sustainably printed in Belgium.
