From Tahiti to Tonga, the New Caledonian Islands to China, George always used his faithful Duofold to document his experiences in a travel journal. He believed this not only preserved his memories, but also strengthened them. The thrill of traveling and his appreciation for global cultures inspired George's creativity and many of his iconic designs for Parker.
