Postalco Jotter

I like the looks of this notepad:

It’s made by a Japanese company called Postalco, comes in blue and a lovely shade of green and measures 4 3/10″ x 5 4/5″. It’s sold, strangely enough, by J. Crew, for the not very reasonable price of $18.50.

  1. One can also buy them here, for a somewhat better price:

    They also make a regular notebook style that can be found at the link above. I like the looks of these, too, but tend toward side opening pocket notebooks. I haven’t decided whether to try a top opening style yet, but if I do, it will probably be one of these.

  2. Correction: This site seems to no longer offer the larger, side opening version. But they do have a larger size top bound version in addition to the pocket size.

  3. Interesting binding. Would like to see it in action.

  4. Does someone want to explain why side opening notebooks are so popular? Ive always used fliptop books because theyre the only tool I can use if there is no table around. While using a top opener is every bit as easy to use on a flat surface as a side opener.

    I finally even broke down and had a custom flip top leather cover made and the inserts to fill it. It is one of my best investments. I can write quickly, regardless of whether Ive got a flat surface. My book also has a right handed penloop and note pocket.

    When Im done with the 68 page insert, I run through it, put references to important info on the cover, give a date range, and throw it in the box. It also looks super sharp, and I designed it to slip into jeans or an inside pocket. For me, its quite perfect.
