Here’s a new brand of notebooks from Buenos Aires, Argentina: Libretas Brügge. The owner of the company was kind enough to send me 3 samples to review. Brügge’s notebooks offer pretty much all the standard features: a hard cover, removable paper band with branding, elastic closure, ribbon marker, and back pocket. They come in pocket […]
Moleskine has introduced some new colors for softcover notebooks. The examples in the photo below look like they are warped and curling, perhaps from a too-tight elastic on the beige one… not a good sign. See more at Don’t be a [ ] – Be flexible with a soft cover notebook! – Moleskine ®.
These look rather nice– linen covers, which I love, and in attractive colors. Best of all, this pocket size notebook is American-made in Michigan, and still only $12! At the moment, they seem to only offer lined notebooks, except for a sketchbook in a larger size. More details at 3.75″ x 5.5″ HARD LINEN COVER […]

At 105 x 148 mm, it […]

So many of the notebooks I’m drawn to are hardcover or softcover notebooks with stitched signatures, but here’s a really nice looking wire-o bound notebook: To make it even better, they’re made in Baltimore, and for each one purchased, they donate a notebook to a Baltimore public school student. Buy at Regular Small Notebooks from […]
This looks like a rather nice notebook cover– it even comes with a custom Rite in the Rain notebook. But Filson is a high-end brand, and this is pretty high-end pricing: $110 for the 5×7″ size! Via Filson Horween Leather Notebook Covers – Photos • Selectism.
It’s fun to review things that stretch the boundaries of “notebook” a bit. The Notez notebook and Dayz planner certainly do that! They are made by an Austrian company called Less Thingz, who were kind enough to send me these samples. At a glance, you can see that these have a unique format. The outside […]

My jaw dropped when I opened the box of samples sent to me by the folks at Grandluxe– it was huge and heavy and full of tons of notebooks! Let’s take a look at the wide variety of products Grandluxe so generously shared, many of which I had never seen in stores. (If you don’t […]
