Unboxing my Canteo Biella notebook

I just bought this notebook in Switzerland. I am quite impressed with this moleskine-like book. The big difference is the elastic band that goes over the top right corner. Not only does it hold the book closed, it also holds a really cool matching pencil (included with the notebook!). This is one unique book. Apparently, it's only available in Switzerland from Canteo.
Sideview - note the all-black pencil. Even the wood is black.

Front view - similar feel to the Moleskine, but the elastic band goes over one corner. Why didn't I think of that?

Rear view. Note the pencil and the really cool company logo on the back.

The company Biella originally made office supplies for the Swiss government. Today their products are available to the average Fritz on the street through a company called Canteo. You can learn more about them at their website.

  1. What a great pocket notebook. I came across your blog through a post on The Notebook Stories (which I read religiously). I've looked through several of your posts here and your drawings are amazing, it's so cool that you travel and see the world.
