Simplicity itself – A notebook purely for writing.
MD Notebooks are available in three page formats – blank, ruled lines and grid.
The blank notebook is the ideal format for writing down ideas freely as they come to you, or even using a double page as a canvas for your thoughts.
The ruled lines format provides a bold centerline so that the upper and lower pages can be used separately. Split a single page into two or a double page into four to arrange your notebook how you like, for writing memos, keeping a diary, or inserting dates for use as an appointment book.
The grid format features a 5mm square grid based on old Japanese manuscript paper. The grid is characterized by the small gaps between the squares. There is also a mark every five or ten squares to make counting characters even easier. The light blue grid lines do not distract from your writing or sketches.
For MD Notebooks we use two kinds of paper: MD Cream and MD Cotton.
When we started making MD Paper in the 1960s, we initially only provided white paper. This paper is still used in popular long-selling Midori products such as our Diary, Daily Diary and Diamond Memo.When we started making MD Paper in the 1960s, we initially only provided white paper.

MD Cream was first created in 2006. The warm color that is easy on the eye is ideally suited to writing with a fountain pen. This paper is designed to provide a fine balance between a slight catch on the paper when writing and a smooth writing feel. With this paper, you can enjoy the sensation of writing.
MD Cotton was newly developed in 2013. It is a soft and gentle paper that contains 20% cotton pulp. Cotton paper has always had outstanding durability and keeps exceptionally well. From ages past, it has been used in Europe for important and official documents, known as paper of high quality. The fibers are finer and longer than pulp, meaning that it has a luxurious feel and smoothness that give it an airily soft texture.
MD Cotton has a soft whiteness just like cotton that is well-suited both to fountain pens and colored pencils. We recommend this notebook as a sketchbook and therefore provide it only in a blank format.
