Commenter Suffchick below rightly points out that you can now buy Leuchtturm1917 notebook in the uk on: www.thepaperie.co.uk and www.papernation.co.uk – the prices are similar (the paperie offers free shipping but it it charges a bit more). However, the Paperie has a much bigger range and more colours to choose from so I have been buying mine from there!
There’s a few things I love to buy – make up, cat toys, books and stationery! I have to many unfilled notebooks buts not even funny (I get told off about it a lot from Mr Candy) but I can’t help it.
A new note book – those crisp smooth pages is like a breath of fresh air, a new beginning. I swear I have some kind of problem – when a notebook is slightly soiled, I discard it.
My latest discovery:
Leuchtturm 1917 does notebooks in lined, plain and squared. The difference between this and Moleskines is that it has a index system and all the pages are numbered (which I discovered AFTER tearing some pages out. Idiot!).
Its an interesting alternative to Moleskine although it isn’t really cheaper. I do think Moleskine has slightly, just slightly, better paper. I bought mine from here (Torquato) – fantastic service, but do be aware although its a .co.uk site it comes from Germany! No taxes for us though, because its in the EU.
Can’t wait to start. I’ve decided to collate all my notes into one book just to document all my day to day goings on.
