2022 DIARY | BLACK (SECONDS)
NB: this item has some minor imperfections, such as sun damage or small knocks suffered in transit. Rather than let a perfectly good diary go to waste, we offer this as a ‘second’ and hope that, despite its flaws, it will be a joy to use and an inspiring blank canvas.
Limited edition A5 week-to-view diary, with dated double-page spreads from January 2022 — December 2022, plus a week either side. Also includes year overview page for 2022 and 2023, and an 8-page dot grid section for notes.
Now in its sixth year, the Mark+Fold Diary is appreciated by stationery connoisseurs around the world and we are proud to gain new converts each year, many of whom tell us they will never go back.
The Mark+Fold Diary layout is the result of extensive research into existing diary layouts, and in-depth discussions with our customers about what they felt was and wasn't working for them.
We focused on providing a clear 'picture of the week' using elegant, clean typography and neat 'zoning' of the page. We have kept things as simple as possible, with a view to offering structure without being prescriptive. The aim was to inspire you to make plans and feel excited about getting organised, but with the freedom to build your own 'system' — one that works for you and your life.
MATERIALS + MAKE
We use a fountain-pen-friendly 120gsm paper, which is super smooth and a beautiful, warm off-white shade. It is made sustainably in Scotland at an historic paper mill renowned for its high quality papers, made with water from the nearby River Don.
All our notebooks and diaries are bound in thread-sewn sections with cold glue, resulting in a book that is as robust as it is elegant. The cover is attached via a strong 'hinge' front and back, rather than having any stiff glue applied along the spine itself. This allows for beautiful flexibility and a perfect 'layflat' for the most comfortable writing experience.
All Mark+Fold stationery is expertly made in the UK and Europe, using FSC-certified papers.
Our stationery Editions are individually numbered in pencil, and wrapped by hand at our London studio. If you'd like to request a specific number from a batch, we will always be happy to oblige, subject to availability. Read more
Each year we list the next year's diary for pre-order from Springtime onwards. As a small independent business, this allows us to place supplier orders with confidence and in return for our customers' loyalty and support, we offer pre-order items at a special price.
Pre-order customers are given first choice of colours and special number requests, on a first-come-first-served basis. We do often sell out of popular colours, so we recommend placing your order early to avoid disappointment.
We generally list the diary for pre-order from January of the previous year, and pre-orders close in the first week of September, when we start sending out our first copies. If you'd like to be kept updated about pre-orders for next year, please join our mailing list.
