I received your extraordinary package yesterday. I had intended to save it for Christmas, but I couldn’t.

I love it so much - everything, the packaging, the little inserts, the drawings, the thoughts, ideas, and humor. I am much better in French than Spanish, but I can still understand quite a bit. Enough to be inspired, to learn, and to laugh.

It’s hard to believe you actually work at this size, at first I thought you must have reduced it down in printing, but the size of the stamps tells me no, this is the original size. Unbelievable, and I thought I wrote small. It also boggles my mind how you managed to print the pages so perfectly. It seems like you would have to had to take your original notebook apart to get the gutter to print so perfectly. Not that you would not be capable of this, given the beautiful re-binding.

Thank you, José, glad you are there, are working, and sharing.

A page of 1 page is a wonderful book like a treasure.
A lettering, the color, a picture and sticker etc,everything is beautiful.
The affection one made as much as is being excited about this book I didn't make.

I bumped into Jose's Instagram page when I was searching some travelling notebook pics. I am lucky to have one of the Orange Manuscript as it is really amazing. It just make me feel like I want to follow Jose's footprints and do what he does at the moment.

Thank you so much, for sharing the incredible experience with us all around the world.

I would love to see more manuscripts coming out soon.

Jose is a true Artist. Each and every page is a wonder. The illustrations, the graphics and layout are all meticulous. This will be a treasured object and will take an honoured place on my mantle along with some other treasured books. Thank you for this work of art. I hope there are more in the future. Carla
