There may be no great diarists, then, but there are still great diaries.... In the midst of one's self-obsessions, the Redstone Diary reminds one of other worlds," declared writer Ian Sansom in the Guardian, of the inimitable diaries published by London's Redstone Press. Since its inaugural edition in 1988, the Redstone Diary has been a beloved daily tool of creatives.

The agenda is designed with practicality as well as aesthetics in mind, with sturdy spiral binding and a weekly layout that provides ample space for one's plans.In 2022, the Redstone Diary's annual theme is In Another World, encouraging us to explore liminal spaces, alternate universes and imaginary timelines that may or may not be possible in reality. As the year progresses, the images and text dispersed among the weeks are by turns evocative and beautiful, intended to provoke thought and yield creative inspiration.
