Daily Masterpiece
By

Rating
A five-year diary is designed for the popular practice of writing just one sentence about your day, every day. The diary functions like a time capsule; each page has a month and day at the top and five spaces to jot down a line about what happened on that day over a five-year period (the diary is not year-specific and can be started at any time). Drawing from highlights of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's world-class collections, the journal features a work of art on every page, identified with a brief caption. Selected with holidays, seasons, and rhythms of the year in mind, these pieces represent the vast traditions and eras of creative output housed under the Museum's roof. Each spread offers inspiring juxtapositions: for example, Monet's Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies faces off with Utagawa Hiroshige's print of a similar flower-laden footbridge, while Ingres' sumputuous portrait of Pauline de Broglie, featuring the lady in a brilliantly blue gown, is paired with the charming Standing Hippopotamus, an Egyptian statue coloured with a similarly blue glaze. The journal is in itself is gorgeous design object; it has a gold foil stamped cover and spine, a ribbon maker, and other deluxe features. A pleasure to open and use every day, THE DAILY MASTERPIECE provides an inspiring place to record quotidian observations and major events alike.
