Made in Japan, this simple notebook was designed to create a writing experience that you will enjoy. The high-quality MD (Midori Diary) paper inside was developed in 1960 and has been continuously improved on ever since. The paper is bleed-resistant, feather-resistant, and fountain-pen friendly, giving the user a pleasant writing experience.
The notebook has a sturdy thread binding that lies completely flat when open, making it easy to write across and great for lefties. It also comes with a ribbon marker to keep your place (each style of paper has a different color ribbon). To feature the charm of the paper itself, the cloth tape used to bind the spine is exposed, giving the notebook a unique look. You can even see where the ribbon marker is glued in place. The notebook cover is made of thick card stock and wrapped in a paraffin paper which can either be removed during use and placed on when you're done with the notebook for a pristine look or kept on to develop its own patina. If you are concerned about your notebook getting dirty, you can purchase a plastic cover or paper cover.
Measures approximately 5 13/16" wide x 8 5/16" tall. Ruled, blank, and grid are 176 pages; dot and frame are 192 pages. Comes in a plastic sleeve with sticker labels that can be used to label the notebook. Made in Japan.
