Why buy Alwych?

Classic Design

The crisp sharp lines, uniquely distinctive construction and robust all-weather cover have been a lasting signature of the Alwych book for around 100 years.


The flexible all-weather cover is constructed to keep your notes safe, through providing strong durable protection, designed to withstand the elements

High Opacity

The ruled pages are printed on ivory paper to increase opacity and reduce ‘shine through’, which makes the notebook easier to read, whilst reducing eye strain

Sewn Section

The pages are traditionally sewn into 16-page sections, before being welded into the strong flexible all-weather cover, which provides lasting strength and durability


“Alwych notebooks have been in my hand on every journey since 1996. No other notebook is quite the right size and quite the right style. Try one for size!” – Michael Palin
