"Redstone, the company whose name has become synonymous with innovation and imagination..."
Time Out

"The Redstone Press is an advertisement for smallness. It has made startling discoveries and rediscoveries. It has published titles in an original way, in beautifully produced boxed sets that are evidence of a care which larger publishers often cannot afford. And it has succeeded where others might have failed...."
The Bookseller

"…..his [Julian Rothenstein's] whole mission has been to make beautiful things and the results have almost never been equalled. The box books are inspired as are the diaries and everything else he does. We keep ours in a glass-topped display case because they are something halfway between an artefact and a book." 
Will Self, The Independent Magazine

"There may be no great diarists, then, but there are still great diaries. By far the best is the legendary Redstone Diary…..In the midst of one’s self- obsessions, the Redstone diary reminds one of other worlds."
Ian Sansom, The Guardian

"Everything from Redstone Press has a distinctive house style. I can find no higher recommendation for a publisher in this day of huge international monsters who sell books by hype in between gorging on each other. Julian Rothenstein favours bold layouts and flat muted colours reminiscent of Russian Constructivism. He manages to convey a certain nostalgia and respect for the past while being at the same time fresh, unpredictable and modern."
Nicholas Garland, Weekend Telegraph

"and now, David Shrigley. If you don’t know the work of this unclassifiable artist, now is the time to become hooked. He’s Charles Addams, Jules Feiffer, Nick Garland, Steve Bell and Saul Steinberg all rolled into one, but for my money, even darker and funnier."
Richard Dorment, The Daily Telegraph

"Like Thurber and Bateman before him Adam Dant sums up the sheer agony of existence, in the ever-rolling storyboard of his achingly funny art we understand at last why modern life drives us mad."
Emma Tennant

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

  • Brilliant!, 29 Dec 2009
    Redstone every year create the best diaries! My mum at the end of the year cuts out all the lovely pictures and creates posters to hang on the wall. Inventive orignal and ulitmately beautiful….a MUST buy along with all their lovely books
  • Accept No Substitute
    Every time I try to use something other than a Redstone Diary, my life goes hopelessly awry. Redstones are the perfect size, include extra pages in the front and back of the diary for notes, are wire-bound (so lie flat), include fun illustrations…the works. The daily space is large enough to include both scheduled meetings and things-to-do, without being so large it’s difficult to see the entire week. Absolutely necessary for my sanity.
  • fantastic calendar
    The Redstone Diary is the only diary I buy from year to year. It is week on a page format; it’s spiral bound on paper that is NOT glossy (I hate glossy paper); it has pockets for odd notes; and each year it has one theme that it pursues for all its illustrations. It’s perfect.
  • Redstone Rocks
    I have been using the Redstone Diary series for about 5 or 6 years now. I am always amazed at their innovative themes for each year. Every week of this day planner features a picture relating to the theme. It can be an old piece of music, a page from a book, a diagram from a scientific paper, rock paintings, photographs, a piece of artwork or sculpture, etc. When they did music as a theme, there were instruments from around the globe and through time. Colors was a fun one with pages of text books marked up in different colored highliters.
  • My favorite day book
    I have been using the Redstone Diary for about 10 years. It’s a comfortable size, the wiro allows it to fold over. The left hand pages alsways have something very interesting on them that are thematically related throughout the book, and there’s lots of pretty colored paper in the back to do whatever on. I tried a conventional one this year but it didn’t last long, no engrossing themes, didn’t lie flat, nothing a little loopy about it at all.
  • get on the redstone bus
    2007 will be my 7th year utilizing the Redstone Diary. Absolutely the best dayplanner- spiral-bound, pages broken down weekly, with enough space to write, margins and endpages to jot notes, and THE most interesting collections of art, photos, charts, etc… I like to imagine the editors slaving all year, mining the dustiest recesses of archives and the internet to find forgotten images that deserve the light of day.
    If you’re currently using another dayplanner, dump it. If you’re using one of those Palm-Pilot/electronic organizer things, smash it. The future belongs to the analog loyalists.
