Following the success of our first Diary in 2017, we have collaborated again with Swiss-German graphic designer, Catherine Nippe, for our 2018 Diary.
We developed the clean page layouts, in response to research and discussions with diary users back in 2016. We wanted to provide maximum writing space, stripping away any unnecessary page clutter, providing a helpful 'picture of the week.'
The 2018 Diary has a cover in grey-green, with copper foil details. The page layouts are printed in muted grey. The diary has 112 pages, with a week-per-spread and a year overview for 2018 and 2019. They are printed in Netherlands by Drukkerij Tielen, and ota-bound at Binderij Hexspoor for a perfect layflat. First batch of 300, September 2017.
The pages are 120gsm Olin Smooth Cream, which is milled at Stoneywood, Aberdeenshire. It is beautifully smooth and thick enough that even an inky pen won't bleed through. The warm cream tone is calm and classy.
As with all our notebooks and diaries, each diary is individually numbered and hand-wrapped at our London workshop.
In response to feedback from users of our 2017 Diary, we have made some tweaks :
— we are including a set of brass page markers with each copy, to help you keep track of the current week, and important dates coming up
— we have avoided printing on the end pages to allow more white space
