This post was a welcome ray of sunshine at a dark time, shadowed by the passing of so many cultural icons that seemed to pile up at the end of 2016 and (for some of us) the foreboding event looming on the 20th of the month. The naked joyousness of the cover was both reminiscent of an innocent childhood and also a paean to more hopeful days ahead. I had to have one. Now.
I went to their online store but I didn't see it. I contacted Scout Books through their Facebook page and was told that while it wasn't in their store yet, they would send me one. Perhaps Chloë from Scout Books could sense my desperation through the drift of the Internet and was throwing me a lifeline. In any case, they were as good as their word and the notebook arrived a few days later.

I'm not sure, but these seem to be made-to-order at the Horse & Hare online Etsy shop.
And finally, here's a gratuitous shot of the Scout pocket notebooks I've used in the last year:
