John Hughes

We’ve been reading about the late legendary screenwriter and director John Hughes,  a writing and note-taking enthusiast.  “John Hughes never stopped writing”, states Vanity Fair’s David Kamp.  We were honoured to read that Hughes used Smythson notebooks to document his iconic scripts for films such as The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

    The Vanity Fair article features a photograph of a selection of Hughes’ 300 notebooks and it really is quite a sight! To any of us who put pen or pencil to paper on a regular basis it is an inspiration.

    Although he used a variety of pocket notebooks, the article states that he was carrying with him a Smythson Panama when he passed away; he really was a writer until his very last moment!
