New special edition notebook covers - part one

I've had a bit of a creative spell and produced a couple of new special editions. Here is the first one.


The Heirloom range features distressed-look leather and each comes with a vintage-look plain insert to get you started. The price of each is £35 with free shipping worldwide.

If you'd like to order one, please send me an email.

Free Traveler's Notebook diary inserts in Moleskine Large Cahier size

This is going to excite a few people who I know have taken to this size in a big way (pun absolutely intended.)


The Moleskine Large Cahier size is 20mm wider than the full size Midori insert, giving full dimensions of 210mm high by 130mm wide.

I had fun with this layout and on a bit of a whim went with a typewriter font.


I'm making available for free download PDF sets in this layout for 2015 for both A4 and Letter paper users. Each file contains an insert for half of the year. Here are the files:


What you'll download is a file that is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4 or Letter paper, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size using these instructions:


Remember to cut at 130mm (13cm) wide rather than 110mm (11cm) wide as you would for a regular Midori insert.

If there is demand, I'll also make source files available so you can make booklets to cover any period you like and change the fonts and other aspects of the design.

Creative covers for Midori Traveler's Notebook inserts

If you've been making your own insert booklets, you'll have a supply of card that you use for the covers. One thing I've been using instead recently is photographic paper. Inspired by the Midori Pan-Am insert, I've found some other vintage airline graphics and made some similar inserts of my own.


These aren't for sale, but just for my own amusement.

Why not find some images that are meaningful for you and use these for your own cover?

A free Birthday Book for the Midori Traveler's Notebook

This one was requested. It's an insert designed for you to be able to track people's birthdays and the gifts you buy them.


Inside you'll find the year set out so you plan the year's events. Unlike a conventional diary, this is perpetual; you won't need a new one next year.


At the back of the insert there are pages that allow you to record the gifts you gave to people.

You can download this booklet for free and print it at home. Choose either the A4 Word version, the Letter Word version, the A4 PDF version or the Letter PDF version.

What you'll download is a file that is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4 or Letter paper, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size using these instructions:

I've published templates before that help you print your own notebook inserts. Today I'm publishing a set of easy-to-use templates for users of both A4 and Letter size paper that should make the job easier than ever.
