Introducing Maruman Mnemosyne Notebooks — The Gentleman Stationer
All grid notebooks are landscape style (see bottom). For paper of this quality, Mnemosyne Notebooks are attractively priced, with A5 sizes at $8-9 and A4 sizes at $15.
Recently I've been using the Maruman Mnemosyne A4 at home, I really really enjoy the paper, too bad it doesnt come with a thicker cover and stiching. I've also been enjoying the Midori MD notebooks, they look and feel amazing but they wont really hold up unless you get the plastic cover (ugly) or the leather cover (expensive and a bit too much).

Hands down best everyday notebook you can buy
I'm weirdly particular about which notebooks I like. After experimenting with dozens of others (including moleskine, Amazon Basics, etc.) I can easily say this is the best I've ever used. Here are the little features that separate it from the rest: 1. Paper quality. Fantastic to write on and double ...

Landscape orientation is a winner for lefties!
Very unique item from Japan that popped up on my Amazon search for a medium sized notebook for work meetings that would be easy to use for a left-hander. I'm surprised no one else has thought to use a landscape orientation instead of the traditional portrait orientation that leaves a binder in the w...

What’s everyone’s favorite paper?mine is 52gsm tomoe river. 📓
I love the maruman mnemosyne notebooks. No bleeding, minimal ghosting, and a perfect balance of showing off sheen/shading while still letting ink dry in a reasonable amount of time. There’s also a great variety of notebook sizes, layouts, and line/grid/etc options.
