Filofax spotted in the wild

This was a lovely sighting for me. This woman was sitting opposite me on the bus and someone phoned her. She pulled her binder out of her bag and wrote the phone number and message down.

I took these photographs in the bus terminus where there was still light. Out on the road the bus had no inside lights on so I could not take any more.

I asked her how old the binder was and it was about 15 years old. It was beautifully battered and stuffed with a very well thumbed address and notepaper section. She was using a Filofax ruler and week on two page inserts in cotton cream.

The brand is A-Plan which is a Swedish brand.

  1. Great to see. I still can’t get over that post a couple of weeks ago where the person said they were “bored of planners” and needed to find a new hobby! My ghast had never been so flabbered 😉
