The new Expedition Point Five notebook from Rustico features the minimalist design and handcrafted quality of the original—now in an even smaller, even more portable size. The cover is made from top-grain cowhide with rounded edges and an elastic wrap closure, and contains a refill notebook with 23 pages of cream-colored dot-grid paper. Two elastic bands hold everything in place: one wrapped vertically inside the cover to secure the notebook, and the other wrapped horizontally around the cover to keep it closed while in transit. Tuck it in your pocket to bring everywhere, everyday—the Point Five will only get better with age.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of leather notebook cover: Black, Buckskin, Burgundy, Charcoal, Dark Brown, Ocean, Saddle, or Stone. As each cover is made to order, the estimated shipping date will be 4 weeks after the drop ends.
It started with a bookbinding course, some top-grain leather, and a ream of cotton rag paper. Now, Rustico employs more than 30 people and produces a range of fine leather and paper goods, from journals to wallets and beyond. Avoid leaving this pouch in the sun, and steer clear of chemicals; over time, the natural oils on your skin will give the cover a patina of creases, scuffs, and fades to reflect your personal use. For additional conditioning, Rustico recommends using Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam, or a similar all-natural care product.
