A while back I wrote a post singing the praises of the Midori Traveler’s Notebook – my personal choice for a day-to-day planner and notebook. I focused mostly on the larger version, but it’s worth noting that Midori also offer a passport-sized Traveler’s notebook which is perfect for all your paper needs when travelling abroad. For the brand’s 5th anniversary, Midori teamed up with the Hong Kong based ferry company “STAR” to produce an entire range of anniversary products with a STAR EDITION twist. This iteration on the traveler’s notebook is cut from an elegant camel coloured leather which I think would age the best of any of their current offerings and comes bound with an emerald elastic rather than the usual brown or black. As with any Midori notebook, it also comes in a cotton dust bag and carton box, but the packaging surprises don’t end there. The paper that comes with the STAR EDITION includes a brief history of the STAR ferry line, a ferry route map and, conveniently (assuming you’re based in Hong Kong or planning on popping over in the next year) a ticket for the ferry, embarking at Victoria Harbour, which is valid until December 31 2013. There’s also a spare maroon elastic, which I think might go quite nicely with the camel leather – and as always, the entire package is made in Japan. If you haven’t got a great leather day-to-day notebook, this is definitely a great way to get into one. The notebook is available on the Midori (Miscellaneous) online store, while supplies last.
