It Started With a Mission to Create the Perfect Notebook

Born out of necessity. Built for perfection.

The Northbooks Mission

High quality, minimalist notebooks for thinkers, dreamers and doers.


Our Story

Our founder Zeb was always fascinated with notebooks.Whether he was in school studying environmental science or working at tech agencies in New York City, he always had a notebook around to jot down ideas, plans or designs. The problem was that he couldn’t find a notebook that matched the quality, style and affordability he desired.So, he set out to design a better book. Northbooks started out of a basement apartment in NYC and now ships to homes across the world. 

You Buy a Book, We Plant a Tree.

Sustainability doesn't have to be complicated.

Sure, we use recycled materials in our products and focus on a sustainable supply chain.

But we also like to keep it simple - for every Northbooks order we plant a tree in the rainforest through our partnership with Eden Projects
