Meet A:B Notebooks at YOUR-MIND, Seoul.

I heard of ‘YOUR-MIND’ from one of my friends that it is a small bookstore both online and offline. I was intrigued by the fact that it was not just an ordinary bookstore selling same books as large bookstores but they help people make independent books and sell them in their stores. The online store is full of books made by individuals as well as small independent publishers. I also felt like to create my own as I looked through those books created with passion and determination…. more

A:B Notebook’s product description has changed

There has been one incident that one of our customer has destroyed his beloved About:Blank notebook by wiping it with wet cloth. The initial idea was to let our customers know that they can use damp cloth carefully to remove white dusts on a black or red notebook as our cover is stronger than ordinary paper although it is not plastered. We decided to remove the cleaning part in the product description because the cover is nevertheless 100% paper and how wet and how careful remain rather ambiguous. … more
