The MD Notebook is designed for simplicity so that what’s on your mind can be put on paper easily.
The MD Notebook has no cover.
Why? Because it is important to us 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.
This blank notebook offers the ultimate freedom when putting your ideas on paper. You can even use the two-page spread as a single canvas when drawing.
We’ve 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. 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. The A5 is the hardback book 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.
