NOTEBOOK REVIEW: ROLLO LONDON HARDY A 5 March 21, 2018

Rollo London was launched by Alex Fagan, the former Creative Director of Beauchamps of London, a luxury accessories brand. While there are dozens of Moleskine-clones out there, attempting to capitalize on what feels like a recent stationery renaissance, Rollo's notebook is a refreshing new entry that’s very different from anything I’ve reviewed lately. If you enjoyed the Field Notes “Ambition” edition from a few years back, with their old-school gilt edges and throwback aesthetic, you’ll want to check these out.

Here are the specs: The Rollo notebook contains 96 pages of 70 GSM Cream Paper, perforated and narrow-ruled, and features a faux scotch grain cover that feels very nice in the hand and not at all plasticky. Branding on the notebook is minimal, with “Rollo” subtly embossed on the back and a small gold stud/jewel in the shape of a dog embedded into the front of the cover. The latter is a nice touch, and adds charm to the notebook. This particular notebook is the “Hardy A5” in Hunter Green, with gilt edges on the pages.
