Word. Notebooks launched in 2012 with the idea of styling their pocket notebooks with movements, trends and what inspired them. For The Firework Series, Word. Notebooks collaborated with American artists to pay homage to the Fourth of July, America's Independence Day. We celebrate this special day by filling the night sky with explosions and it's among the hissing and popping and vibrant colors that this collection of notebooks was born. It's a great way to change up your EDC with something useful and with something fun.
The Luke Pelletier EDC notebook is printed with bold colors of red, yellow, black and blue. Vivid imagery is seen on the front and back.
Luke Pelletier grew up in Western North Carolina. He graduated with a BFA in fine art from SAIC in 2015. Living in a tourist town for much of his life, he has been heavily influenced by seasonal economies, as well as the multi-level relationships, dependence and resentment, between tourists and locals. Much of Luke’s art blurs the lines between celebrating and condemning a culture that agrees to be taken advantage of while it takes advantage of others. His art is filled with personal anecdotes, dark humor, dualities, contradictions, repetition, and scenes of paradise that are simultaneously pristine and decaying. Luke uses photography, painting, sculpture, social practice, writing, and craft to riff on his moral dilemmas with romance, objectification, labor, competition, tourist culture, capitalism, addiction, free will, masculinity, fun, and Americana.
