The Lilipad Notepad and Liliput Pen combination from Troika is as at home in a toolbox as it is in a handbag or back pocket.
The small but perfectly formed notebook measures just 105mm x 75mm (A7) and is robust. Very robust: the hard cover is tactile, with rounded corners and a ruler marked in centimetres and millimetres debossed near the spine. A sturdy elasticated grey loop keeps the notebook closed, and there's a useful fabric page marker. The inside back cover houses an expandable pocket. It contains 128 pages of FSC-certified white paper, perforated for easy removal, with a dotgrid layout perfect for writing or sketching.
The icing on the cake is that it comes equipped with a colour-coordinated Liliput Construction pen! Just 82mm long, it's a ballpoint with a black refill, slotted and Phillips screwdrivers, a capacitive stylus and a ruler marked in inches as well as centimetres and millimetres.
