Back to MD Paper Products 15th Anniversary


MD Notebook - A6 - Blank - Limited Edition - shunshun

To celebrate the 15th Anniversary of MD Paper Products, MD invited 15 artists to get creative with the MD Notebook. Each special-edition MD Notebook features the artists' illustrations blind embossed on the covers. shunshun, a Hiroshima-based drawing artist designed this cover.

A Note from the Artist:

"When I'm thinking about, say, what kind of drawings I want to create for a personal exhibition, I grab my notebook and start sketching out my ideas. I add words to drawings of nature—the sea, rain, wind, mountains—and abstract images. I feel like my mind flits back and forth between imagination and creation, opening up new doors. Sketching things by hand in a notebook is a good way to focus and have fun at the same time. So since the MD Notebook is totally blank, it's a space that clears your mind so that the ideas will flow."

Midori's MD Notebooks are known for their simple and minimalistic design, which is intentional in order to emphasize the quality of the paper and your writing experience. Your pen will glide across MD's specially formulated paper, which also prevents your ink from bleeding, ghosting, and feathering.
