Threaded binding is used for MD Notebook, with 16-page quires bound at the back with thread. Threaded binding makes the pages both robust and easy to open. Usually used for items such as notebooks and journals that will be used for a long time, this binding's ability to open to a full 180 degrees provides the ultimate comfort when writing, making writing a stress-ere experience from start to finish.

Each notebook has 176 pages, a Parafin paper cover, a bookmark string, thread-stiched book binding, and label stickers.

The blank notebooks offer the ultimate freedom when putting your ideas on paper. You can even use the two-page spread as a single canvas when drawing.

The ruled notebooks have a thick line at the center so that you can divide each page in half or divide a two-page spread into quarters. Use it for notes or a diary, or add dates and use it as a schedule.

The grid notebooks have 5mm squares with gaps in between, like the old gecko yoshi used for writing in Japan. Every 5 and 10 squares are marked, making it easy to count how many characters are written, and the lines of the grid are pale blue so that they will not interfere with your writing or sketches.

The MD paper was developed for Midori's original diary in the 1960s, and has been constantly improved upon to this day to create even higher-quality writing paper. It is resistant to bleeding and strikethrough, and is designed for comfortable writing. MD Paper Cream was launched in 2006. With a warmer color that is gentle on the eye, this paper is ideal for writing with a fountain pen. It also has the perfect balance between smoothness and a little resistance, ensuring comfort and making writing a pleasure. MD Paper Cotton was developed in 2013, with cotton pulp used for 20% of the materials, giving it a soft, fuzzy texture. This cotton-soft white paper is ideal not only for classic fountain pens but for colored pencils too. This special version of MD Notebook is available only with blank pages, as a specialist art notebook.
