Manufactums Atoma. A notebook and methodology system in prefabricated parts and kit.
The Belgian notebook system Atoma, which is about 70 years old, consists exclusively of rolling rings and flying sheets, whereby the rings prevent the sheets from flying and the sheets prevent the rings from rolling - but both always remain easily detachable from each other thanks to a patented special perforation of the sheets. So you can add to, change and mix the various form inserts of your self-assembled notebooks at any time - even with forms, calendar or address book printouts that you create yourself on the blank forms using a PC and printer, and punch the appropriate holes with the Atoma hole punch.
The paper. A real writing paper.
Almost all "stationery" for sale today is optimized for its trouble-free run through offset or office printers, which is always to the detriment of the person who wants to write on it by hand (and with fountain pen, ballpoint pen or pencil). We have (very painstakingly) selected a paper that is maximally designed for the needs of handwriters. Pencil and fountain pen glide over it amazingly cleanly, fountain pen and ballpoint ink are accepted contouredly without running, and graphite pens also leave a homogeneous, clean typeface.
To compose your special notebook from these ingredients, you need - the aluminum rings (11 for an A4 and 8 for an A5 notebook), - book covers, which we make from Texon and which are available in A4 and A5 and - if you want to work with tab sheets - in A4 and A5 extra-wide, - inserts with the special perforation required for the rings in A4 and A5, and - inscribable tab sheets with 6-fold tabs in A4 and A5 extra-wide. The assembly is very simple: First you thread the rings into the back cover, then the insert (in batches of approx. 8 sheets each) into the rings and finally the front cover. We also offer all blank variants as ready-made notebooks.
