A5 Midori Notebook Journal A5 Frame MD paper
With a day to a page, you can chronicle your life.
Remember everything you did and thought about each day – even the little things.
When you’ve filled up all the pages, you’ll have your own original autobiography.
Two of the MD Notebook A5 10th products MIDORI released to celebrate its 10th anniversary have become part of its permanent range.
These notebooks now have 192 pages to fill with the story of your life – that’s a page a day for about half a year.
The format has a dotted grid, with two larger dots at the top showing where to write the date – all the structure of the ruled version but with more flexibility.
If you like to organize, edit and illustrate your thoughts, this is the notebook for you.
Inner paper: 192 pages
The MD Notebook has no cover.A simple Japanese design very studied.
Why? Because it is important to MIDORI that you can see the pleasing texture of the materials as soon as you pick it up, and imagine how comfortable writing will be. No bells and whistles; just the pleasure of writing.
And of course ease of writing is important too. Behind this no-frills design are a multitude of optimizations.
Threaded binding is used for MD Notebook, with 16-page quires bound at the back with thread.
Threaded binding makes the pages both robust and easy to open. Usually used for items such as notebooks and journals that will be used for a long time, this binding’s ability to open to a full 180 degrees provides the ultimate comfort when writing, making writing a stress-free experience from start to finish.
Covers make a notebook more difficult to open, or cause wobbling. To stop these things from interfering with your writing comfort, the MD Notebook has no cover.
This gives the MD Notebook an iconic design where you can see the mesh on the spine, called super, that is hidden under the cover in other notebooks.
The exposed super spine bends easily, keeping the notebook open perfectly.
MIDORI has added a playful touch to the minimalist design of the MD Notebook.
Another iconic feature of the MD Notebook is the string attached to the spine. 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. This adds a tasteful accent that can be glimpsed through the white spine and between the pages.
The MD Notebook is wrapped in paraffin paper in place of a cover. It is designed to match the sizes of books, with the paraffin paper wrapped like the dust jacket of old books to add to the effect while also keeping the pages clean.
Use it to protect your MD Notebook or take it off and use your MD Notebook bare. You can even put it on one of your books for protection on the shelf. There are so many different things you can do with this versatile wrapping!
The MD Notebook is designed to match the sizes of books in Japan, with a range of four sizes: A6 (pocket edition size), B6 Slim (paperback size), A5 (hardback size) and A4 (magazine size).
It’s just the right size to place next to your favorite books on your shelf!
It also comes with index tabs that coordinate perfectly with the coverless design and exposed super spine.
Some are printed with frequently used items such as “IDEA” or “DIARY”, while others are left blank so that you can add your own headings. They can also be stuck to the top to hold the string in place.
