Smythson, the chic British brand of leather goods, diaries, and fashion accessories is set to introduce a series of limited-edition art diaries in October.

Here's more via FWD: The launch is timed with London's Frieze Art Fair and Art Basel Miami Beach. The diaries will feature curated pages--much like the company's current fashion diary--with content on the annual art events from The Art Newspaper. According to a Smythson spokeswoman, two artists each from Los Angeles and London have been enlisted to design unique covers. A total of about 200 notebooks in two sizes, will be produced, with proceeds tied to each artist's desired charity.

Oh this is killing me! I wonder who the guest designer could be. The details right now are still top secret, but more info, including the artist's names, is expected to be revealed in July.

A spokeswoman from Smythson said "It's not a Richard Prince or Damien Hirst" < *sigh* >
