New UK Brand Monseiur are making quite a noteworthy impression on the market with their affordable real leather notebooks. Using a high grain leather their notebook covers are highly flexible and have a really nice texture and patina to them. The notebooks come in a variety of colours and sizes but for me, a fountain pen user, its the different weight of paper options that impresses me – they are even producing a watercolour paper notebook. They don’t have a retail site but I have heard that there is interest from the Waterstones buying department so ask your local store soon! Check out their site for the opportunity to submit your own cover design too!
