Trust the rain-soaked Scots to create an All Weather Notebook. You can also trust them to not mess with a good thing, which is exactly what they have with this Alwych Notebook. This isn't vintage or redesigned to look that way, it's the exact same notebook that has been out and about in the rain for more than 80 years. It's stripped down and utilitarian, sans elastic, bookmark and pockets. Its cult following isn't due to slick marketing or even nostalgia (although there's plenty of that), it's because this product with the colored page edges works and has been used by Antarctic exploration luminaries and village deliverymen alike. It's All-Weather, All-Use, and for All of Us.
