About this deal

The notebook contains 88 sheets, which are bound together with stitching, so that the pages lie flat. The body is a simple tapered piece of plastic with a plug at the end all made in the same off-white colour. There is minimal distractions in the book with the front end paper showing a square to give a title to the book and maybe a name or date with item and branding details below that.

This Midori MD Diary is is essentially the same except for a different colour ribbon, and different inside printing. It pairs well with fountain pens and rollerballs thanks to its bleed-resistant and feather-resistant qualities.While notebooks are for writing down a series of thoughts across multiple pages, memo pads are for those pieces of information we need to remember. A very easy to use weight for me however for people who prefer heavier pens this might be worth noting. Traveler’s Company products are design around a theme of “traveling that takes place in one’s daily life”. MD paper has been developed since the 1960s and is high quality fountain pen friendly paper which prevents smearing and bleed through. This means that the paper doesn’t quite handle Pushkin as well as Tomoe River (52gsm ro 68gsm) but still isn’t bad.

The MD Notebook diary is based on the MD Notebook, and with its simple, easy-to-use format, and plain memo pages, is ideal for jotting down your ideas and inspirations while organising your everyday life. Each MD Diary has dated monthly calendars for scheduling events, and undated pages for everyday planning and note-taking. The exposed spine with codex binding allows this thick journal to open flat from the first page to the last. Again you can tell Midori is aiming this pen at those unfamiliar with fountain pens and possibly those coming from ballpoints where you do need to press harder.

Robert Oster Bondi Blue is more saturated than can be shown here to limitations on colour spaces in the cyan colour spectrum. Tomoe River paper has become a staple amongst the community for its unique characteristics and notable friendliness to fountain pen ink. The stitching is tight and there is very subtle logos debossed into the front and inner front bottom fold.

The type with lines has a thick line at the center so that you can divide each page in half or divide a two-page spread into quarters. These are affordable products from an established Japanese brand that have a certain minimalist-like aesthetic about them. Each type of notebook now has its own color of string, with a white string in the cotton type and an orange string in the diary type. With stickers instead of printed months and days, MD Diary Sticker Free gives you all the freedom you need in a calendar.Midori I remember as the original company that brought us Traveler’s Notebooks (I still have a Midori branded Traveler’s Notebook) but in 2015 Midori spun out their Traveler’s Company brand.

You won't be able to resist filling this notebook with ideas, drawings, designs, notes, plans and much much more.The MD Notebook Light is a lightweight version of the standard MD Notebook, with fewer pages and a simple staplebound binding.
