Like Sweden’s other best exports (Ikea, Volvo cars, Alexander Skarsgård), this notebook is the perfect marriage of function and aesthetics.
For the Stationary Aesthete
You don’t have to be a hard-hitting reporter to take notes like one. Postalco’s A6 notebook houses your scribbles in a package so good, it’ll make even your most banal observations feel earth-shattering.
For the Uncompromising Observer
With enough pages and subtle date and hour markings, Stalogy’s editor’s series can be used as a planner, a journal, or a place to doodle in the least productive meeting of your day.
For the Casual Planner
Muji’s recycled paper notebooks are a cult favorite for many reasons: They clock in and just a buck a piece. They’re super thin, so carrying one around won’t weight you down. And, like all good Muji products, they’re spectacularly unfussy.
For the Environmentalist on a Budget
Mark’s Refined Uroko notebook features a unique set of perforated tabs on every page that you can fold up to mark your spot or use as labels to classify lists, notes, budgets, and other writing.
For the Guy Who Loves Open Tabs
160 sturdy plain pages give you the freedom to take your notes beyond the normal lines or grid. And the 90g paper (imagine a luxurious piece of parchment paper) will stand up to ink and watercolor so you can make your daily work a work of art.
For the Right-Brained Notetaker
Moo’s hardcover notebooks boast swiss binding which ensures that every page lays perfectly flat, finally.
For the Man Tired of Wresting Pages
This pocket-sized three-pack of handsome notebooks are ideal for on the go brain dumps. And every time you buy Public Supply donates a portion of the proceeds to New York public school programs.
For the Civic-Minded Jotter-Down
These green beauties are completely waterproof and will ever survive an accidental spin in the laundry. The pages repel water, sweat, grease, and mud so your deepest thoughts will stay intact next time you’re raging at burning man.
For the Writer Who Keeps Copies
Keep your notes zenned out with these Japanese designed small, medium, and large minimalist notepads.
For the Desktop Minimalist
Ode to Things
Each page on this understated notebook is printed on heavy set card stock, so every entry, to-do list, or note just feels important.
For the To-Do List Lover
