Paperblanks are excited to be able to tell you about the newest addition to the Embellished Manuscripts Collection, the ‘Amy Winehouse, Tears Dry’ journal.  Designed in partnership with the Amy Winehouse Foundation, this book features a self-portrait of the British singer alongside her signature and lyrics to one of her most recognizable songs, ‘Tears dry on their own’.

Royalties from the sale of this journal will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. This global charity helps prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.  The Amy Winehouse Foundation was set up by her family in memory of Amy and it also aims to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.

Amy Winehouse personally owned many Paperblanks journals and Alex Winehouse from the Foundation explains more about the design chosen for the cover “I personally wanted to find a sketch that Amy had drawn – it is something I think Paperblanks do very well in respect to other artists and musicians in the portfolio – that showed that she was a fun, quirky, loving person.  This sketch, taken from a little note she had written, sums her up very well I think. To the world, she was a major music star. To her family and friends, she was someone completely different. I think, with the sketch and the lyrics featured on the book cover design, we get both of these sides.”

Hoping to inspire future songwriters, writers and poets the Embellished Manuscripts Collection features famous artists, writers and philosophers, and creates a space for people to write their thoughts or works of art of their own.

The ‘Amy Winehouse, Tears Dry’ journal comes in Mini, Midi and Ultra size.

About the Amy Winehouse Foundation

In Amy’s memory, we work to inspire children and young people to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they can flourish.

Our work is inspired by Amy’s spirit, her love of children and the challenges that she faced in her own life.

Today, the Amy Winehouse Foundation helps thousands of young people to feel supported and informed so that they are better able to manage their emotional wellbeing and make informed choices around things that can affect their lives.

We’re able to do this because of the support we receive from people like you. Anyone who believes in young people can become a part of our work and Amy’s legacy. By supporting our work, you will help them to transform their lives, flourish and be heard.
