Midori Leather Covers for MD Notebooks

We just got in these leather covers made by Midori for their line up of MD Notebooks, and yup, you can say that I am in love. It took me a while to really get into the Midori Traveler’s Notebook, and I use both the Rhodia Webnotebook and Quo Vadis Habana fairly regularly, but that’s more of a utilitarian relationship.

This MD Notebook + leather cover system is something that is truly timeless: love at first sight.

We’ve been asked quite a few times about a refillable leather notebook cover. There’s just that something about a leather cover that has been with you through thick and thin and in and out of bags and onto subways and into cafes and bears the marks of your living.

New in Store

This has been a pretty busy week for us in new products – taking pictures, getting them up on the site, and having a good go at them ourselves.


Noodler’s Black 3oz bottle.

We got an order in from Noodler’s, including new ink colours:
Dark Matter
Eel Gruene Cactus
Black Swan in Australian Roses

I know what you’re thinking. It’s slightly strange that a fountain pen stationery store might not already be selling Noodler’s Black Ink. We thought it was slightly strange, too.

Noodler’s Flex Pens are complete new to the store. You may have seen our review of Noodler’s Nib Creaper, but we also got in the Ahab and Konrad. We’re carrying a few colours for each pen, but we’re hoping to get a few more on our next order.

We had the orange Rhodia Webnotebooks, but we finally have the black!

Rhodia "R" Premium Soft-touch Notepad in Orange A4

Rhodia “R” Premium Soft-touch Notepad in Orange A4

Rhodia R Premium Soft-touch Notepads – they’re a little pricier than the standard Rhodia notepads, but the paper is absolutely wonderful. You get fewer sheets (70 sheets as opposed to 80), but the pad feels just as thick because each individual sheet is slightly thicker. The paper is ivory and super smooth and 90gsm, as opposed to the 80gsm. We only have A4 in stock right now, but we are waiting for A5s to arrive!

And we couldn’t be more excited to get Monsieur Real Leather Notebooks in from the UK, especially as they’re only beginning to find retailers in North America. They’re a new notebook company, but they’re already making waves. They look and smell wonderful – and the paper is great: we’ll be putting up a review of these notebooks soon.

We’d love to hear any feedback about the products we have, or products you’d like to see! We’re pretty busy as we’re preparing for the store opening – we’ve got our fingers crossed for July 1st, but you never know with renovations.
