Kaizen

Following the Japanese concept of "kaizen" (continuous improvement), LIFE notebooks are never perfected, but refined over and over through the cycle of design, construction and use.

Hand-made with care

It doesn't get much more hands-on than this – the small team behind Life Stationery hand-glue, hand-trim, hand-sort, and compile their notebooks by hand. You can feel the human touch in everything they produce.

70 years of LIFE

Each LIFE notebook is the product of generations of careful craft; a vital history that the small team at LIFE continue to keep alive today.
