The Hidden Pencil Notebook by designers Robie Rogge and Joe Shouldice is a fun way to get kids excited about and ready for school. With trompe l’oeil-designed covers, these notebooks are functional optical illusions.
The covers of both notebook designs feature a group of pencils. One depicts an organized row of typical yellow pencils. Nestled into a hollowed-out gap disguised by the cover’s pattern is a real pencil that can be removed for use and placed back in the notebook cover when finished. The other notebook cover depicts a scattered collection of colorful pencils making it easy for any type of writing utensil to disappear into its chaotic pattern.
These Hidden Pencil Notebooks are a great way to exercise a kid’s visual perception while simultaneously preparing them for the school.
