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 Tool 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.
If you're wondering just how good it is... it won the Judges Prize at the London Stationery Show 2018 Stationery Awards!
Available colours: mint green, red, black, grey, blue, yellow, brown.
