The Victoria & Albert Museum always do a great collection of notebooks, stationery and diaries. This year is no different. Their diary choice reflects one of their key exhibits this year:

The V&A Diary 2011 is published to coincide with the V&A’s major Quilt exhibition in 2010 that will also be going on a world tour. This exhibition showcases the V&A’s collection of patchwork and quilted covers to bring together over 300 years of British quilting history, from the 18th century to the creative reinvention of the quilt by contemporary artists. 

The diary illustrates a selection of quilts from the exhibition and also includes some previously unseen images including reverse sides plus sewing equipment such as needles, étuis and other ephemera.

The diary is available as a desk diary (23(h) x 20cm(w)) or as a pocket diary (14(h) x 12cm(w)). Inside are full size beautiful colour pictures of the collection, opposite a weekly view diary layout.
