  • With a day to a page, you can chronicle your life.

    Remember everything you did and thought about each day – even the little things. When you’ve filled up all the pages, you’ll have your own original autobiography. This journal contains dot grid pages, one of the most popular page choices for notebook and Bullet Journal users.

    The dot grid pages are unobtrusive allowing you to write, sketch, add tables, columns and to do lists all without interruption. It has two larger dots at the top showing where to write the date – all the structure of the ruled version but with more flexibility. The journal includes MD Paper index stickers for each month. Simply stick them to the edge of the page and fold them over to create a tab so you can easily flick to a dedicated month section. If you like to organize, edit and illustrate your thoughts, this is the notebook for you.

    MD Notebooks by Midori do not have a traditional cover, allowing the pages to lay completely flat. You can add optional MD covers made from clear vinyl, paper or leather or even put the MD notebook inside the A5 leather folio by Bellroy for a luxurious work companion.

    Midori's quest to find the best form for a notebook has resulted in a design icon. Cheesecloth mesh tape, which is usually hidden under the cover of a book has been left exposed. The delicate pattern of the cheesecloth creates a distinctive appearance.

    MD paper is suitable for use with both fountain pens and pencils.

    These notebooks have 192 pages of cream paper to fill with the story of your life – that’s a page a day for about half a year!

  • MD Paper is Midori's own writing paper which has been produced since the 1960's. It is designed to give the best writing comfort across all types of writing instruments including fountain pens and pencils. 

    The pulp used in MD Paper is made from broad-leaved trees. Compared to conifers that result in hard, inflexible paper, broad-leaved trees provide for a finish with a smooth texture.

    The process of pulping and making the paper is performed in Midori's factory and each batch is rigorously tested to ensure it meets the high quality required.

    Inspection begins by assessing thickness, weight and color. The most time-consuming inspection is the writing properties test. A variety of different writing implements are used to write or draw letters and lines repeatedly.

    This test is done to check for quality, including ink smearing, drying speed and to ensure there is no bleed-through. It is also done to confirm the writing feel of how the pen glides or catches on the paper, and to inspect texture, including touch and feel. Only paper that has passed all these inspections is given the name MD Paper.
