From Allegory, a Kickstarter-born Chicago shop dedicated to small-batch manufacturing, this cover adds a timeless, handcrafted touch to your favorite A5 notebook. Made of supple vegetable-tanned leather, it has a dedicated pen sleeve—a new feature added in response to feedback from the community. This sleeve is attached to the cover at the back and the snap-button closure flap at the front, and allows you to carry your notes and writing instrument in one convenient package. Internal flaps secure the notebook in place, while an internal pocket with a built-in slot gives you a place to store your loose-leaf paper and business cards.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of leather color (charcoal, coffee, or saddle) and thread color (blue, charcoal, coffee, cream, gray, red, or saddle). You can add a Clairefontaine My Essential A5 notebook in black, blue, green, red, or tan (+ $8); please note that the notebook and the cover will be shipped separately.
You can also add up to two lines of engraving (+ $10). At checkout, select the optional engraving of your font choice (sans serif, serif, or script) and fill out the optional engraving text box to ensure we receive this request. If you’ve selected the engraving option but do not fill in your desired text, the order will be processed without personalization and you’ll be refunded the $10 surcharge.
A year after its 2012 launch, Allegory added a suite of leather goods to its existing line of pens. To produce these leather products, Allegory works directly with a tannery in Ecuador, where eco-friendly farming practices are paramount. Vegetable tanned and waterproofed, the leather is built to age well and show character over time. Still, it’s easy to restore to like-new condition with a quick treatment of neatsfoot oil.
