LIFE Margin notebooks offer sturdy, thread-bound construction, a generous 160 pages (80 sheets) of excellent writing paper, and a stylish design that isn't likely to be confused with any ordinary notebook. Despite their outstanding performance and good looks, they're offered at a price that invites you to use Margin every day.

This is the LIFE Margin Notebook in A5 Grid, with a red margin line 35 mm (that's 7 grid boxes) from the edge of each page. We like to use the margin space for notes, headers, dates, and as an impromptu spot for bulleted lists and timed schedules.

Margin notebooks use LIFE L Writing Paper, one of the best all-around paper options in the world for pen and pencil. Though it's fountain pen friendly, with great ink handling characteristics, L Writing Paper isn't so smooth that you can't use a pencil. The subtle laid finish offers a bit of tactile feedback, so you don't get the 'ice rink' feeling of slick pen-only writing paper.

The front endpaper offers space to index your Margin notebook, which is great for bullet journaling and project notebooks.

Measures 148 x 210 mm (5.8" x 8.3"). Made in Japan.
