New Internationalist books and publications


Me and my friends called the NI Planner "The ultimate Planner". It has drawings, photos, street art, doodles, quotes and all sorts of things to look and stare while you plan your day, all carrying a message for the mind to think through. It is weekly and therefore it has not much space to write for each day but that makes you take note of only the important things of the day with just a few words. At the beginning, there are some worthwhile websites like international organizations, human rights, environment/climate change and others and some holiday dates (internationally!). At the end, there are some metro maps (NYC USA, London UK, Barcelona Spain and others), some space for contacts, empty space for your own drawings and thoughts. A beautiful combination for a planner. - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review.

"If it's as good as last year's, then it'll be brilliant: colourful, interesting to flick through, quirky... You'll be so organised simply because it is so much fun to use!! What was it like inside last year: 1 week per page, lots of photos / street art / cartoons / quotes / tube maps for some major cities / a bit of space for contacts / year planner for the current & following year on double page spreads / facts about the world / a number of human rights, environmental etc type organisations listed / movies to inspire you / holidays, etc." - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review.

A funky diary drawing on New Internationalist’s experience of creating high quality illustrated diaries and calendars using recycled materials. This is the diary for those who swim against the tide.
