Review Leuchtterm1917 Notebook

Thursday 19th May 2016 is National Notebook day. I’m not sure what that means, but I thought I’d get in early with a review of the Leuchtterm1917 I bought for myself recently.

Graphic centre Leuchtterm display (768x1024)

Leuchtterm1917 have been producing high quality stationery in Germany since … can you guess the date? … Yes! 1917.

There are many formats across a range of colours but the one I chose to buy was medium/Aa5 with 5mm ruled pages with a gorgeous turquoise cover. It is a hard cover notebook with a stitched binding. The paper is smooth and creamy and perfect for every writing implement.

There is a good range of formats and the vibrant colours are amazing.

I took this photo of the Leuchtterm1917 display in the London Graphic Centre, Covent Garden.

Leuchtterm really understand the needs of their notebook users.

  • The first three pages are set up to be used as a table of contents.
  • The pages are numbered starting with page 1 after the table of contents.
  • At the back, the last ten pages are perforated, so if you needed to write a note for someone else you can tear off a page without ripping out the binding.
  • Each notebook comes with sticky labels that can be used to label the spine and the cover so you can find what you want from your archive of used notebooks.
  • As you would expect from a notebook of this style and quality, there is a handy pocket inside the back cover for keeping those loose notes, receipts or love letters
  • The notebook has an elastic binder and two ribbon bookmarks

STOP PRESS I’ve just noticed that there is a range of dual colour notebooks. My favourite is turquoise on the outside, green pages on the inside and I really need one now!

This is my first Leuchtterm notebook but won’t be the last. Buy one yourself and I’m sure you will become a convert.

Later this week, we are going to hear from Joe Craig who is also a Leuchtterm 1917 fan.
