London Notebooks

I was in London a few months ago, and while the trip wasn’t my best notebook-spotting adventure, I did see a few interesting items.

At Foyle’s, the huge bookstore on Charing Cross Road, there is a nice selection of stationery tucked in shelves by the registers on the 2nd floor. I thought the Puggy’s Best notebook was rather cute, and I was really tempted to buy the composition book tote bag!

At an airport shop, I was somewhat tempted by this Ted Baker notebook, but I didn’t like the pen loop on the spine, or the included pen itself. The pages inside were a mix of lined and squared pages, but the squares were very small– I think I’d find them a little distracting. Note the notch in all the pages for where the elastic closure sits.

So those were the things I did NOT buy… but I did purchase a couple other notebooks on my trip, which I’ll review soon!

Ted Baker Brogue Notebooks

I spotted this lovely brown notebook at a funky little gift shop in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood and loved the wingtip shoe pattern and texture on the cover:

And inside, you get these beautiful endpapers:

You can buy the medium size of these notebooks in other colors on Amazon but otherwise you may just have to get lukcy in a gift shop. It’s made by Wild & Wolf, whose “Qwerty” typewriter notebooks I reviewed here. See here for other examples of their excellent range of notebook designs, but unfortunately they don’t do direct to consumer sales in the US.
