The French have a reputation of producing great stationery and notebooks including brands Rhodia and Clairefontaine. The latest brand coming out of France is Calepino, with a dream of making a new French pocket notebook with a cover made entirely from cardboard. The notebooks are small, hardy and resistant and take their inspiration and influence from a notebook found in the founder's fathers workshop. Numbers 1 to 4 have a ruler on the inside back cover, with a metric scale.
