Pessimists who enjoy keeping track of life's miseries in a day planner would probably enjoy what the Disappointments Diary has to offer.
The title is a pun on what a day planner is normally used for, which is to take note of important appointments, and that is just the beginning of the cynicism in this book. Instead of a list of important days, the drab gray book includes a listing of notable deaths to remind people of the great people they will never get the chance to meet. Quotes like "Beer before wine, cry yourself to sleep. Wine before beer, cry yourself to sleep" appear at the top right of every page.
The Disappointments diary was made by Jim Sutherland of Hat-Trick Design and Nick Asbury of Asbury & Asbury. There is a limited quantity of 1,000 disappointing journals.
