We’re consistently amazed and excited by the creative ways people find to use our Paperblanks journals. Sometimes we celebrate these photographs by showcasing them as a Best of Instagram list, Artist Profile or Peek Inside…, but it’s relatively rare that we get to actually show you a video of the journal in use. Check out these shots from a recent episode of the Russian ice dance Channel One television program, “Ice Age”! As you can see, our Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre Embellished Manuscript was featured prominently as a prop in one couple’s routine.

“Ice Age” is like “Dancing With the Stars,” but with figure skating instead of ballroom dancing. Seen on the ice are Anita Tsoy (Анита Цой), a popular Russian singer-songwriter, and her professional partner for the competition, former World Champion pairs skater Alexei Tikhonov (Алексей Тихонов). Skating to Evanescence’s “My Immortal,” the performers use the journal to tell the story of two star-crossed lovers. And not only do the skaters use the book, but the TV competition’s host couldn’t help but admire it, himself!
