These Belgian-made, German-inspired Atoma Notebooks ($16) are minimalist in design; simple, yes, but they are of exquisite appearance and material. Notes have never looked as appealing when written on the Atoma’s 144 perforated sheets. The pages are bound by unconnected rings. Yes, you heard it right; the rings aren’t connected from end to end. It’s what makes its design so unique. Atoma has been making notebooks for 60 years now; and for their tenure in the industry, the grade-A quality of their products is now considered undisputed.
