Apica Figurare Wire Notebook B5

Sorry but this item is currently unavailable.

Please check back at a later stage.

If you need a wire-bound notebook, this is a pretty good one. I like it mainly for the thick orange cover - it has a nice hue and texture that stands out, yet is still tasteful, and the letterpress printing on the edge is cool and surprising. I think that if anyone saw one of these "in the wild" they would do a double-take. Well, anyone that is into notebooks, that is.

Another thing I like about the cover is that after a while it gets beat up looking. The pics show my Apica after the edges have been repaired. They were starting to fray so I taped them with book repair tape, which is thick and substantial, and not like cheap dollar store shipping tape.

As for the paper, it's ok - not at the level of LIFE writing paper, but better than plain old notebook and composition book paper. It will feather a bit - not too much - but it does not bleed through. Just being honest you know.


The cover measures 255x180mm (slightly larger than B5), and there are 60 sheets inside. Each sheet has 32 lines spaced 6.5mm apart.

  1. Great Notebook 5 Star Review

    Bought this for my husband to use at work. He loves it. Everything from the cover to the Tomoe River paper is spot on for his needs.

    Note from Dave: The paper is super nice but thicker than Tomoe River paper.

  2. Stationery Geek Bliss 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2015

    I'm in stationery geek heaven. Not every paper has to be Tomoe River or Life to be functional for its purpose. And for an everyday notebook, this is so true to its function as to be aesthetically satisfying. The notebook's thick--THICK--orange covers are serviceable for writing on your knee and attractive to look at; the lines are just so (not too broadly spaced, not too pronounced in line thickness); and the B5 format is my emerging favorite as well. I'll be back for more before you all make them disappear! (Do these come in other colors? Hint, hint.)

  3. great spiral 5 Star Review

    The spiral description on the site is accurate. This is a great spiral that looks good and performs well with a fountain pen using one side of paper. The covers are sturdy and durable. I will order more!
