[With mid-terms in full effect at schools and universities nationwide, Chronicle Books editor Kim Romero gives you five reasons to stand out during those tedious library study hours with a Rad BoomBox journal.
1. We Want That Ol' Thing Back
The main reason why we created this is because we thought that given all of the digitalization of music these days, boom boxes are just old school cool. So we wanted to celebrate that and create a journal that shows just how cool boom boxes were. At one point, that's what people used to listen to music, way before the iPods and MP3s. It was all about record players and boom boxes. We thought they were just great machines. We wanted to pay homage to the boom box.
2. Bling Bling
The other reason is because it's super blinged out and it's just a cool package with great design and production values. You're not going to find a journal like this anywhere. It has metallic ink and silver foil on the cover. It's also a great price at $14.95. You're getting all of these nice bells and whistles with the journal. We made sure there are cool designs on the inside and outside.
3. Radio Head
Another reason is because if you put it on your shoulder, it looks like you're carrying around a boom box. Seriously! The design of the journal mimics a boombox. Ideally we would have made the journal full ghetto-blaster size, but that would have been crazy big so we scaled it down. Still, you can carry it around and it looks like a mini ghetto blaster.
4. The Perfect Match
I think this is the perfect journal for gadget lovers, music lovers, and creative types. This is an identity piece. You could go get your journal from some other retail outlet like Staples or Office Depot but this is something you can identify with. No matter what type of music you like, the boom box can represent it. It's a cool looking journal compared to everything else that's out there.
5. It's All About You
The last reason is because it's unique and utilitarian. Whether you want to use is as your music or creativity journal, or to jot down your notes from school or work, this journal is both distinctive and useful.
