The Napkin Sketchbook for Your Amazing Ideas At The Bar

Since great ideas are often conceived in bars, when friendship, relaxation, and delicious alcohol inspire the mind to let loose, bar napkins are frequently used as the unofficial documents of creativity. Piggybacking on the bar napkin's storied history, Baum-kuchen has created the Napkin Sketchbook, just in case the ideas come from the napkins, not the bars themselves.

The leather sketchbook uses untreated hide, so it'll develop its own patina as it gets exposed to the elements of beer, sweat, and bad conversation. Along with ten napkins, the sketchbook comes with a thin-tip Sharpie, which — if we're being honest — is probably a terrible idea, since you will probably think your "amazing idea" requires a canvas rather than a napkin.
