The iconic Tsubame Notebook was first introduced over 70 years ago and has become a classic staple of well-appointed desks in Japan. Sturdy, easy to use, and a pleasure to write on, these simple, straightforward stitch-bound notebooks are like the humble composition book's worldly, well-traveled best friend. We love the feel of the rich, absorbent, acid-free, smudge-proof paper, a Japanese iteration of foolscap writing paper imported from Britain. It's lightweight but substantial, and a pleasure for pen or pencil. A6 (roughly 4 1/8" x 5 7/8" for those of us who haven't bloody well mastered international paper sizing).
