"To Serve Man" is episode 89 of the anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on March 2, 1962 on CBS as the 24th episode of season 3.
The symbols are in the language of the Kanamits, an alien race that lands on Earth and offers humanity advanced technology. The symbols are seen on a book the aliens leave behind. Their translation into English is "To Serve Man".
The story is based on the 1950 short story "To Serve Man", written by Damon Knight. The title uses dual meanings of the verb to serve: "to assist" or "to provide as a meal." The episode is one of the few instances in the series wherein an actor breaks the fourth wall and addresses the viewing audience at the episode's end. The episode, along with the line "It's a cookbook!" have become elements in pop culture.
For those, who are really serious about their journal (or recipe book). This will be an aspiring author's (or cook's) new best friend.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.

Item as described. One side has the English translation and the other has the kanamit translation. Thank you!

Fun souvenir from the Twilight Zone! A little smaller than I originally imagined it, but I love the two front covers. Would buy again — or give to a friend to capture recipes and experiences (as a journal). Very nice. Thanks!

It went perfect with the Twilight Zone decor I had for my aunt’s 60th birthday surprise! It arrived on time and was a great collector’s piece.

Love this! I asked for a double sided notebook. To serve man on one side and the alien language on the other. This is great for actually recipes or as we will use it for Halloween decor! Thanks again!
