Irene was visiting the Van Der Spek factory while Steve and I were there and I absolutely loved her black Janet Leather Nodex (Nomad traveler’s notebook cover + Codex Hobonich cover = Nodex). This can thus be used as both a Hobonichi cover and a TN cover, and is available in all sizes, customised to your needs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
It was totally awesome – slim and small but also chunky and solid with a bit of heft to it. The leather was perfectly pebbly and it hugged the contents perfectly. You could see it was a workhorse, and it fitted perfectly into a smaller-sized handbag. This is the same glorious Janet leather we love so much but the black won’t show marks like the lighter colours.
I could not stop feeling it, enjoying the gentle glow of that patina, and loving the small size that fitted so much!
