The Happy Book is the happiest book in the Nuuna range. It says so, and yellow is scientifically proven to make most people happier.
Designer Stefan Sagmeister is a New York based Austrian who’s designed album covers for Jay Z, The Rolling Stones, David Byrne, Lou Reed, and Brian Eno.
Nuuna Graphic A5 Notebooks are the reigning World Champions – winners of the esteemed Red Dot Frankfurt Design Fair Award 2016. They’re made in Germany, and beloved worldwide for writing, drawing, and BUJO (bullet journaling). And they have a lot of pages.
Each page of these notebooks features the hot-right-now Dot Grid system, which gives guidance for usage without inhibiting typeface or drawing. It’s much less intrusive than standard lined or squared (quadrille) paper, for example.
Nuuna invented the Dot Grid system in 2001). They use it exclusively and remain the only stationery company offering their iconic small, light 3.5mm sized Grid. There’s also 256 pages of this – lots more than other notebooks. A Nuuna will therefore last for much longer.
The quality of Nuuna paper is premium – uncoated 120gsm paper from the Munken Paper Company, Sweden. It’s pure white, and free of bleeding and show-throughs (ok, textas excluded).
These Notebooks also open completely and lay flat. No more putting things on the page to keep it open. Writing across two pages is a breeze. Thread-stitching makes it possible.
The covers are soft which helps journals lay flat, and makes them more comfortable to use. Rounded corners also contribute to the comfort factor. Cover designs are glossy silk-screen printed. Materials used are either bonded (recycled) leather or jeans label material (cellulose).
The 2016 Red Dot Design Awards summed up Nuuna’s positive features in saying that their “craftsmanship and high quality standards are without comparison”. Naturally, Nuuna notebooks also carry full European environmental accreditation.
Nuuna Notebooks are not cheap. That’s because they’re truly excellent and made by very fussy Germans.
The unique cover designs with integrated coloured and patterned edges make each notebook a design object, and a distinctive daily pleasure to have in a bag or about the house. They’re truly an affordable luxury for anyone with a love of the written word.
These beautiful Notebooks are featured at the famed retailer Colette in Paris, and The Red Dot Design Museum Singapore. The Good Store is closer.
