beautiful design, elegant and simple.

beautiful design, elegant and simple. the lay-flat exposed binding is divine. for larger-format, work-related note taking + sketching, I’ll never choose another.

Great notebook

I wish the graph paper was full page, but a small margin is fine. I love the open spine, lay flat note book.

Truly Lay Flat notebook!

I purchased from Northbooks previously and was very impressed. This time, I wanted a journal without a spiral, but would still "lay flat" to write. The notebook is wonderful! Regrets: I wish it were made in America - the original reason I was drawn to Northbooks.

Hi Julie!

Northbooks here. We want to say a HUGE thanks for this lit review. The exposed spine allows the A5 X to truly lay flat and make it easy to use! We've worked hard on the A5 X's layflat design, so it's gratifying to hear that we met your standards.

All of our Northbooks prior to our latest A5 X style were (and are presently) designed, sourced, and made in the USA. We at Northbooks always wanted to create notebooks with features that our US suppliers could not deliver. We didn't aim to simply move production abroad for the A5 X, or to lessen manufacturing costs to try and increase our profits. We really had difficulties looking for a supplier that can create the layflat design. We still wanted to make a better notebook product, one that we've been striving to create since we started on this journey with Northbooks journals. The first result of these efforts is the A5 X Northbook that lays perfectly flat, has an exposed spine, and contains neatly numbered pages, designed in the US and made in Taiwan.

We're still trying to find a US supplier that can create the A5 X layflat design, but we're thankful that you gave it a shot! We're lucky we have customers like you that trust Northbooks with new endeavors. :)

Minimalist Design. Maximum Quality.

Our books are printed with recycled paper that resists feathering, ghosting, and bleeding without any extra bulk. Our paper is thick, smooth, and acid-free. The soft cream color makes for an elegant, easy to read backdrop for journaling, sketching, creating to do lists, shopping lists, or simple weekly planning.


Buy a Book, 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.
