There are a few things you need to know about these Atoma notebooks from Belgium. First, everything is in German which, while confusing, makes them even cooler in our opinion. Second, Atoma has been making notebooks like this one for 60 years so they clearly know what they’re doing. Most importantly, they’re freaking gorgeous. Each notebook has 144 perforated, blank pages protected by Texon coverd. The really unique part though is the binding system. The rings pass through each sheet of paper, but aren’t connected to each other. It’s like a high-end, more grown-up version of the notebook that lived in your Trapper Keeper decades ago. It’s a notebook so perfectly simple it’s engineered and not designed.
