Handmade Leather-bound Notebook From Japan
Permalink Closed


My friend, Mr.Yoshino makes excellent Leather-bound notebooks by hand.

This, "Model 288" , I bought it last year.
Of course, Handmade by him.

Cover is made of Italian cow hide, called "Toscana".

"Toscana" leather has beautiful "leather texture"
I'm in high favor with "Toscana" leather.

Model 288 is pocke size and convenient to carry around

H135mm*W90mm*D14mm

It is a little smaller than Moleskine pocket size.

I was surprised at papers.
paper is a product of Japan, it is called "Tomoe River".

"Tomoe River" paper is very smooth and very thin.
But, bleed-through with fountainpens.
In addition, All Papers are sewn by hand.


Next, larger size "Model 336".
I got it recently.

I place it on my desk

Model 336's cover is made of goatskin.
it has beautiful "leather texture" alike Model 288, but it has a different feeling.

Both model is without utting corners.

To my knowledge, they are best notebooks.
