Stenography, or “shorthand,” is a writing system designed to increase speed and/or space-efficiency, most often used in journalism, medical, legal, and business environments to transcribe the spoken word.
THE STENO is 6″ by 9″ (15cm x 22cm) with a black Double-O Wiring spiral at the top so it lies flat, open or closed. Inside you’ll find 80 pages of 70# “Bright White” paper Gregg-ruled with a fine, soy-based application of “Double Knee Duck Canvas” light brown ink. The covers are Newark Paperboard Mills 60 pt. “Super Duty Chipboard,” with a screen-printed 1-Colour application of “Dictation Smudge” black ink.
The inside covers provide a range of useful information from the history of stenography and an abbreviations guide, to temperature conversions, planetary distances from the sun, a hobo symbol quick reference guide and more. Frankly, we wonder how we ever got by without one open on our desks at all times.
