Paperblanks reveals new 'Amy Winehouse, Tears Dry' journal

Stationery company Paperblanks has shared an image of an Amy Winehouse inspired journal that will be available for sale from next month.

It partnered with The Amy Winehouse Foundation to create this new addition to the Embellished Manuscripts Collection, entitled the ‘Amy Winehouse, Tears Dry’ journal, and royalties made from sales of the diary will be donated to the charitable organisation.

Alex Winehouse, from the foundation, explained that Amy owned many Paperblanks journals and he opened up about how they chose the cover design: "I personally wanted to find a sketch that Amy had drawn – it is something I think Paperblanks do very well in respect to other artists and musicians in the portfolio – that showed that she was a fun, quirky, loving person."

"This sketch, taken from a little note she had written, sums her up very well I think. To the world, she was a major music star. To her family and friends, she was someone completely different. I think, with the sketch and the lyrics featured on the book cover design, we get both of these sides.”

The journal (pictured below) will be in stores from March and is set to come in Mini, Midi and Ultra sizes.
