Gallimard Pocket Notebook, Le Baiser


One of the biggest publishing houses in France, Éditions Gallimard has brought us the works of Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre and André Gide, to name a few. 

Founded in 1911 as the Les Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française (known as NRF) by Gaston Gallimard, André Gide and Jean Schlumberger, Gallimard has published an extensive list of Nobel, Pulitzer and Prix Goncourt winners. You can read more about the history of Éditions Gallimard on this Guardian article.

The pocket notebook here listed takes its name from Guy de Maupassant's 1882 short story "Le Baiser" (the Kiss) - which you can read here.

Aside from literary accolades and historicity, this conveniently sized journal is a handy everyday companion, designed with a delicate ruling and smooth paper for pleasant writing. The soft cover features front and back flaps to bookmark pages and has an elegant, unfussy look.
