It’s the time of year where diary, planner and note book brands each compete at their most fierce. Featured here, is Monocle’s first-ever diary, which has been designed in collaboration with Japanese stationer Mark’s. The B6-sized diaries are very limited, with only 100 available in each colour (that’s black or red). Created with everyday use in mind, the diaries include pockets, subway maps for major Japanese and world cities (including Paris, London, Milan and New York), a five-language mini-dictionary and conversion charts, making it easier for the international traveller. The diaries are available now at shop.monocle.com.
