Welcome to Grouphunt    Learn how it works!
Please note this is a Crowdfunding Hunt. While Grouphunt does not guarantee the promises as advertised by the creator, what we promise is to redistribute the goods to you as soon as we receive them, similar to if you placed the pledge on your own.
Do note that we are only hunting for the Hippo Noto Pocket A5 Notebook with IVORY paper in this run.

As avid fountain pen users, we have been on the lookout for the perfect Tomoe paper notebook for quite some time.  Something with a whole lot of paper, yet with all the cool features of traditional journaling notebooks.

What's in a name?

The name Hippo Noto was largely inspired by our son who passed away too soon.  Hippos were his thing, and now he is our hippo in the sky.  We wanted to create a large, hippo-sized notebook, and the name seemed fitting.  Noto means "notes" in Japanese, which is where the Tomoe paper is imported from.  We hope you enjoy taking hippo notes!

Grouphunt Deal

This is for heavy duty notebook users. If you're someone who expects a lot from their notebooks and frequently wishes they had more pages, this is the notebook for you. We need 10 orders for this hunt to proceed so share this with your writing kakis and JOIN THE HUNT!

Why Tomoe paper?

Tomoe is an incredibly thin paper that is both feather and bleed resistant. Made in Japan, it has superior smoothness while being durable. Tomoe paper brings out the magic in a variety of inks, many times showing sheen or shading that might otherwise be left dormant.  The Hippo Noto has 500 pages of cream Tomoe paper, so feel free to experiment!

The Size

Hippo Noto is a "Pocket A5" size.  It is a little smaller than the traditional size, measuring 131mm x 208mm.  Being a 500-page notebook, we figured making this hippo shorter would only make it more portable and enjoyable.
