Traveler’s Notebook General Poll



The number of variations on the basic Traveler’s Notebook out there is mind-boggling. Sizes, leathers, colours, customisation, number of elastics and booklets – you name it. It’s not surprising that it sometimes feels overwhelming.

I was hoping my readers both regular and sporadic would answer some questions for me. It will slake my curiosity, help others make more informed choices and also help TN producers to better serve the market.

Please add any more thoughts in the comments below. If you have any more questions you would like to see trends on, please ask in the comments and I will add a poll to the post.

In some cases you may have more than one like, so choose the one you like the most. Or you can (if I have set it correctly) repeat vote.

In my case I like

  • personal and A4
  • more than 6 elastics
  • spine closure
  • firm leather
  • trifold and quadfold
  • inside pockets
  • printed inserts from Etsy

  1. This plethora of choice may be an indication of why I have not tried, or even really considered, using a travelers’ notebook. It truly is mind-boggling.

    • You are missing out Joshua! Just comes down to personal preferences, it doesn’t have to be complicated at all. Maybe start with an original Midori regular size (black or brown – best price on Amazon) with a couple of their inserts, voila, all set to go. You will love it
