TRAVELER’S COMPANY, the creator of TRAVELER’S notebook and other stationery to make every day feel like a journey, will make its next stop in Madrid, Spain.
More and more stores in Madrid have begun carrying TRAVELER’S notebook in recent years.
Each store’s selection reflects the owner’s taste and personality, and it makes us happy to see TRAVELER’S notebook in stores where such love has been poured into the products and sales floor. We thought it would be great if they created a network and all held TRAVELER’S notebook events at their stores at the same time. We could just picture locals and tourists coming together, walking down the streets of Madrid with their notebooks in their hands. And that gave us the idea for this caravan event.
This event will be held at six stores in Madrid that carry TRAVELER’S notebook
DO DESIGN, a specialty store that has carried TRAVELER’S notebook for seven years
EL MODERNO, a store selling wonderful knick-knacks carefully chosen by the couple who own it.
LA FÁBRICA, a store that carries photo books, art books and design products.
LA CENTRAL, one ofMadrid’s biggest bookstores which holds events such as readings from time to time.
ISOLEE, a design store with a range that includes clothing, cosmetics, glasses and books.
PAPELERIA DEBOD, Madrid’s specialist stationery store with products ranging from luxury writing instruments to paper products.
A TRAVELER’S FACTORY popup section will appear in these six stores from November 26, 2018, and events such as exhibitions and workshops involving TRAVELER’S notebook will be held in the stores. There will also be a stamp tour, with a free gift of original stickers for anyone who visits three of the six stores. Each store will distribute a special TRAVELER’S COMPANY Madrid Map. Created in a collaboration between TRAVELER’S COMPANY and the participating stores, the map features recommended spots to visit with your TRAVELER’S notebook.
Along with original items from TRAVELER’S FACTORY, the popup sections will sell items commemorating the event. Artists who have been inspired to use TRAVELER’S notebook through their visits to the stores in Madrid have contributed some of their art, which has been printed on the covers of special-edition refills. Other commemorative items include refills and stickers with motifs of items in Madrid that have captured the attention of TRAVELER’S.
We look forward to seeing fans with their TRAVELER’S notebooks as Madrid begins decorating for Christmas. More details on the event will be posted on our official Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, so stay tuned!
The participating stores have arranged for four Madrid-based artists to create art that has been printed on the covers of special TRAVELER’S notebook refills. From right to left, the special covers feature art by ZETA, a prominent graffiti artist who has worked for many companies around the world; Aitor Saraiba, who has garnered many fans for the unique worldview expressed in his illustrations and objets d’art; Marta Botas, a graphic designer who also teaches at the European Institute of Design; and Javier Zabala, who has published over 80 picture books and has won many awards around the world.
This refill and stickers are designed with motifs of things you can see in Madrid, including traffic lights, gondolas and the Bear and the Strawberry Tree statue. Letterpress printing is used for the cover of the refill, providing a unique and tasteful texture
TRAVELER’S COMPANY has collaborated with the stores participating in the event to create the TRAVELER’S COMPANY Madrid Map.
