NB: this item has some minor imperfections, such as sun damage or small knocks suffered in transit. Rather than let a perfectly good notebook 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.




A5 notebook with your choice of lined, plain or dot grid pages. 128 pages smooth cream paper, suitable for fountain pen, made sustainably in Scotland. Thread-sewn and bound using cold glue for a perfect layflat spine.

300gsm cover made in the UK from used coffee cups. With gold thumbcut detail and blind deboss.



A notebook for every day. Made to our usual exacting standards, with a simplified production process and economies of scale passed on to you.

By offering a limited selection of colours, and producing in slightly larger batches, we’ve streamlined the making process. With an emphasis on efficiency and sustainability, we've chosen cover materials that are made responsibly in the UK from recycled fibres. The result is a beautiful quality notebook that you can allow yourself to use every single day.

Available in two neutral colours, and a choice of plain, lined, or dot grid pages. Unlike our numbered Editions, the Everyday Notebook will remain in stock continuously.



All Mark+Fold diaries and notebooks are expertly made in the UK and Europe, using FSC-certified papers. We use thread-sewn sections bound together with cold glue, so the book flops open flat to 180 degrees. The pages are made from beautifully thick 100gsm paper, with a perfectly smooth surface and excellent opacity — great for fountain pen. Each notebook is individually numbered and wrapped by hand at our London studio. Read more

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.

> Our Paper

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.
