I bought this model of the Filofax A5 six months ago, and I haven't regretted it for a second. I had been staring at it on various forums on the internet for a year before I decided it was to be mine, and yes. I love it. And it has taken up a lot of creativity time and I've invested quite a bit in this leather dressed beauty, and I thought I'd show it off a little. Well, at least the dividers.
Filofax Malden in Ochre, you beautiful bastard.
First page, post-its and stuff for easy access.
The next part isn's as polished but that's okay because it's functional. But, look to the right. Here we get into the dividers. For those of you who kind of squint at the picture with the owl and wonder "Is that people without heads doing strange stuff?" than I can confirm, yes, yes it is. Some of you may recognize the the work of Hieronymus Bosch and his weird people and sly owls. I may or may not have that very owl tattooed on myself because I love it so much.
The image is of course a part of his epic triptych painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights", one of the 16th century's most awesome works of art. All the dividers are taken from this painting.
Divider number two was decorated with Adam and Eve in the company of birds and God.
Divider number three got to be represented by a person making out with a pig in a nuns headdress (everything in this painting carries a sharp societal commentary, as you might have guessed).
The music instruments from the 16th century is also hanging out in hell, together with people that in their earthly lives danced a little too much with fruits (of course, a nod at people's sinful sexual lives) and therefore deserved ending up among the monsters in the darkness.
Oh, so yeah, you get passed through beasts while you're at it too.
The last divider got one of my favourite parts of the painting. It's magical with its beams of light protruding through the foggy darkness. Wonderful.
I just cropped out and printed the pictures, put them together with the existing divider (to get the tab nicely) and put laminating sheets on either side and had to finally TAPE the whole thing together with regular see-through tape because the laminating sheets were useless at keeping together by themselves.
I like it!
