It starts with full grain leather
We find the best buffalo hides and cut them by hand. Each notebook has its own unique feel and story. We use thick, untreated full grain leather that will last a lifetime. 'Cause there's no point in cheaping out when it comes to leather.

Proudly Canadian made
We make 'em ourselves right here in our nation's capital and ship them to you personally. Come stop by and pay us a visit, if you want. We're always looking to chat. Please bring coffee.

Premium vellum-inspired paper at 5.8” x 8.3”
Big enough for your craziest ideas. And then some. We use A5 premium writing paper in this one for an awesome portable experience. Seriously. You won't want to write on anything else again. We took everything we learned from great vellum paper, and improved it. Perfect size for ideas on the go, at the office, or in the classroom. 5.8" x 8.3" sheets. 90gsm.

Infinite refills
Keep filling up on A5 paper for your Original notebook. It's here with you for the long-haul. No need to buy a new notebook every two months. Because you shouldn't ever have to give up on your notebook.

Simple bindings
Pop em in or out to switch up your paper. We've got vintage bindings available in silver or gold. Or, if you are crazy, one of each. No, lets not go there. That's a little too much.

Authentic clip
Match your bindings with a custom clip to keep your notebook sealed and lookin' fly. Available in silver or gold. Now on every A5 notebook.

This notebook funds an artist
A few dollars from every notebook we sell goes directly to the Northbound & Notable payout pool. That means you are helping fund someone who is making art for everyone. Basically, you are making dreams come true. Like some sort of genie. That's pretty cool.

Best notebook guarantee
If this isn't the coolest, baddest, most raddest portable notebook you've ever had, then we'll take it back. And refund your money. Just like that. We'll take it back especially quick if you've filled the pages with Nic Cage inspired memes and sketches. Bonus points for "how-did-it-burn" related pictures.
