Shinola Paper Journal
Essential American-made journal featuring smyth sewn binding—a superior binding technique that greatly improves overall durability and extends the lifespan of the journal, while enabling the pages to lie perfectly flat. Handcrafted in Ann Arbor, MI, from all US-sourced components, including acid-free paper from sustainably-managed American forests.
If someone were to ask me to recommend a notebook for general use at work, I would tell them to get the Shinola Large Paper Cover journal.
My previous pick was the High Quality Smooth Paper note by Muji, which are still great but are not stocked in their New York stores.
