Clairefontaine Mlle No Memo Pad

One of my favorite Clairefontaine product lines is Mlle No by Jessica Ollivaud, particularly this stylish woman from the turn of the last century (maybe 1911 or so) wearing all sorts of furry animals instead of their fur.

I hadn't seen this memo pad among the notebooks, but found them at University Stationery on E. 12th Street in the heart of New York University and the Village. I liked the size immediatly, around 4.25 by 5.75 for the paper, which is wonderfully silky 80 gsm and bright white. A good size for notes and jottings, fits in the purse quite well, and is fashionable.

Here's the open memo pad next to a Field Notes for size comparison. At the bottom left of the memo pad is a wonderful pale tan silhouette of the lady on the cover, which adds just a touch of whimsy to this little book. The entire presentation is fun and good-looking, something to think of adding to your desk or bag.
