Brepols Back to Paper Notebook Black Ruled A5


Made by Brepols in Belgium since 1796, these are truly a top-of-the-line notebook. (For the sake of reference: in 1796 Australia had been a penal colony for just 8 years.)

As soon as you pick one of these up, you know youre holding something special. The black cover has been subtly textured in a beautiful cross hatch. Upon opening a front cover, youre met with a regal blue inside cover, followed by 160 creamy, luxuriant pages, made from sustainably harvested trees.

Each page is adorned in blue lines, and are numbered. Writing in one of these notebooks is a somewhat karmic experience. I never want to write in anything else ever again. Which is a pain, because these dont come cheaply, but like all else, you get what you pay for. Meet the Bentley of notebooks. Sexy, stylish, understated and utterly, utterly desirable.


  • Origin: Made in Belgium
  • Size: A5 (148 x 210mm)
  • 160 ruled pages
