The concept of the notebook gives light to the endless abstract possibilities that chess can provide. It’s an inborn power of materializing decisions and concepts in limited time. In fact, the act of embracing so many potentialities in one move, bearing in mind the past, the present and a calculated future, is something distinctly pure. That’s why we chose white. And no ink. Only printed shadows of an abstract space where everything is possible. Emptiness doesn’t mean an absence of soul; it rather constitutes a blank field — a canvas ready for action.
