I have had this Gillio Appunto Slim Rust Epoca cover for quite a while now. I bought it cheaper than normal because it was a good deal item. When I received it though, I could not see any irregularities at all, so I am not sure what they are.
This is my first Gillio item in about six years. I was one of the early adopters of Gillio, and the leather on this Appunto is – naturally – different from the Gigliodoro and original Gillio Epoca leather eras of many years ago. It is much lighter, and for portability you can’t go wrong with a lighter cover.
I love the design (by Theresa Hall for Gillio), and the bookmarks are my favourite feature. I don’t like the Hobonichi Weeks built-in bookmarks as they tend to fray, and are very thin. These ones have cute tags on the end and are easy to see and use. When I use this cover, I will probably remove the bookmarks from the book, and use the ones on the cover instead.
It also has a full-length wallet pocket, something I really appreciate, because I always end up with larger papers that I need to store.
I have not used this cover yet, as I am still in my Van Der Spek Janet Leather Codex, and will be until at least the end of the year (I have a Spring Weeks which lasts until April 2022)
I am planning on using this cover for my 2022 Hobonichi Weeks.
