Waverley Scottish Plaid Notebooks

Something new and different! Spotted at Kinokuniya bookstore in NYC:


I haven’t seen these for sale anywhere else, but they’re made by a UK company: Waverley Books. Two sizes are available. Here’s the full product description from their site:

Each volume has a ribbon-marker and an expandable inner note holder made of cardboard and cloth, and removable booklet with background notes, with a Clan Map of Scotland, and with an individual bookmark, giving detail on the specific tartan used for the binding.

The tartan cloth is supplied by and produced with the authority of Kinloch Anderson Scotland, holders of Royal Warrants of Appointment as Tailors and Kiltmakers to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.

  1. Please, can we just call these Scottish notebooks and not UK?

    Also it’s tartan, not plaid.

    A plaid is something you wear.

    A wool blanket for protection from the elements when working outdoors or a piece of tartan cloth draped over the shoulder as a part of stylised Highland dress.

    I very much enjoy your site and have been visiting it since you launched. A H – Leuchtturm1917 (lined, blank and dotted user.)

  2. Please accept my apologies for curt comment.

    I’ll blame it on a lack of sleep and low blood sugar but that is not a valid excuse.

    Apologies once more. AH
