  • A short review of the Filofax Heritage
    • September 2nd, 2016

    For the first time in many years I was intrigued by a new release by Filofax. While their Classic Croc certainly looked nice, I have never been a fan of printed (and painted) leather. This time, with the Heritage line, curiosity was peaked enough for me to…


  • The Il Bisonte Insider – a brief review of a highly opinionated binder
    • July 22nd, 2016

    I am going to start by saying that I absolutely adore this binder. It is not perfect and it most likely is too rudimentary for a lot of people, but it might just be a perfect match for me. I ordered mine directly from the Il Bisonte web site, which at the …


  • A big, black and beautiful binder from Van der Spek
    • January 1st, 2016

    I finally got around to ordering my first binder from Van der Spek and was lucky enough to have it arrive just in time for Christmas. I’ve used it for a few weeks now and thought I would publish my thoughts on it. I’ve mainly used binders from Gillio f…


  • The week-on-four-pages diary format revisited
    • December 26th, 2015

    For many years my favourite diary layout has been the week-on-two-pages, which I’ve made myself since 2012. One problem with this variant is the limited space allotted to each day, which I mostly worked around by adding a blank page as needed. I once…


  • Thoughts on the medium Mia Cara from Gillio
    • October 26th, 2015

    A while ago I suspended my better judgement and ordered a medium Mia Cara in Epoca Gold from Gillio. I had a few minor quibbles with the item originally sent to me2, but Gillio happily indulged me and let me have it exchanged. This is my eighth binder from…

  • Thoughts on the new Gillio medium Compagnas • August 18th, 2014

    In May last year I ordered my first Gillio binder—a medium Compagna in gold. A few weeks ago I preordered my second medium Compagna in gold, for reasons best left private. While familiar, this new item differed in a some ways from my first. These are a f…

  • Duplex Printing with Lennox • November 4th, 2013

    They say the best inventions comes from scratching your own itch. I’ve been doing just that, lately. Ever since we got a duplex laser printer at home I’ve been struggling with getting it to print two-page spreads in a way that made sense for my A5-bin…

  • The Week-on-Four-Pages Diary Format • October 20th, 2013

    I like to scribble notes on the diary pages of my planner, intermingled between appointments, or in the margins. I tend to record the little things that happen during the day—important thoughts or conversation, who has to stay at home with what sick…

  • The Slim Gillio Compagna • September 4th, 2013

    My slim Compagna next to my regular medium one. They are both of the Epoca Gold-leather, but notice the difference in color — my medium Compagna has been exposed to UV-rays during the Swedish summer. There are more pictures at the end of this post. I…

  • Alfie 1.4 and New Diary Layouts • August 14th, 2013

    I’ve made Alfie, my diary-generating python script, a little nicer. It can now generate five different layouts for your pleasure: a single one week on one page with notes and four different one week on two pages. Now, it also tries to typeset the La…
