Why you'll love it

Great paper

It all starts with selecting the finest materials. We consider only sustainably-produced papers and consider everything from the feel of the paper in your hands, to its opacity, smoothness and resistance to feathering with fountain pen.

Layflat binding

A good notebook should open flat without force, for a comfortable writing experience. Our specialist layflat binding combines thread-sewing with cold glue, to retain flexibility. The results speak for themselves — a book that is as robust as it is elegant.

> Our Layflat Binding

Minimal design

Our considered edit of timeless classics are designed to feel intuitive and unobtrusive. We want the design to feel almost invisible, whilst giving you the structure and prompts you need to get things done.

Absolutely lovely notebooks

I’ve been a customer since 2020 and M+F never ceases to wow me. It’s the Apple of stationery brands—unpacking an order is legit a transcendental experience. Beautiful notebooks with superb attention to detail. Lovely packaging, high quality materials, exceedingly smooth paper. Virtually no bleed-through even after I used heavy oil-based ink. Absolutely worthwhile buy

Excellent products

This order was for my second batch of three notebooks, and a diary, moving up from just using the 12 month planner last year. I do enjoy writing at these note books are simply a joy to write in, and the format of the planner and diary are both very flexible - you can simply change the format of how you use the diary from increments as little as daily. All in all an excellent find and products that I will certainly be sticking with. Thank you.
