Cute floral notebooks from Malaysia:  “The 22-year-olds met at Sunway University where one was studying design while the other did corporate communications.

Almost a Year of the Hobonichi Techo

From The Finer Point, beautiful photos of a Hobonichi Techo planner, after 10 months of daily use: “The Hobonichi Techo has been the one stationery constant in my life this year. I use it every day to record things that have happened, places I have visited and big occasions that I want to remember. I am […]

Eco-friendly notebooks at TreeHugger

TreeHugger features some eco-friendly notebook brands. “Made entirely from recycled, sustainable, or tree-free fibers, these companies care as much for the environment as they do for aesthetics.” I was most excited about the ones below–gorgeous stitched-spine pocket notebooks from Ciak that I’d never seen before, as well as some colorful versions of Calepino’s notebooks.   […]

Chupa Chups Scented Notebooks

This is one of my weirder online finds: a $13 two-pack of notebooks, pages “specially scented with chupa chups flavors.”  I guess if you really like those lollipops, these notebooks are for you!   Source: Paladone | Chupa Chups Scented Notebooks – Set of 2 at ASOS

Talking to Strangers About Notebooks

I was on the train the other night and took out my notebook to jot something down. The woman sitting next to me, with whom I had not exchanged a word up til then, said “Oh wow, that’s so nice to see that you are using a paper notebook! You never see anyone writing in […]

Lineaturen Notebook

Here’s something similar to the Grids and Guides notebook I posted about a few weeks ago. It’s called “Lineaturen” in German, which seems to translate to “line structures.” I spotted this notebook at the Centre Pompidou store and thought it was quite neat, not just as a notebook but as an exploration of the various […]

Moleskine Monday: Evernote Expansion

Moleskine’s Evernote collection keeps growing, as they now offer various options in pocket and large size, including squared, lined and plain pages, as well as the heavier-weight sketchbook pages, softcover journals, and a planner. Presumably this means the products have been successful, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone using one. I occasionally use […]
