Filing, storage and stationery specialist, Railex, is partnering with Modena to bring a beautiful new range of notebooks to market

Elizabeth Porter, Chief Executive of The Verat Group, which includes Brysdales and Railex, said: ‘Thoughtful attention to detail is at the heart of our new range, from the high-quality materials and hand-finish, to the expandable pocket on the inside back cover and the two-coloured page marker ribbons in every notebook.’

Each journal is fastened with a change from standard notebooks – a horizontal, colour-coordinated, flat elastic – carefully designed as a practical pen holder when the books are closed and to tuck away when open. 

Available in genuine premium soft leather or luxury linen touch hardback, the Modena Journals have two size options (A6 mini and A5 midi) and a choice of ruled or dotted matrix, printed on high quality FSC-certified ivory pages.

The premium leather notebooks have been shortlisted for the 2021 Gift of the Year Awards, by The Giftware Association and are available in six colour options. The ‘Natural World’ collection offers Conker Brown, Honeycomb and Raven Black, whilst the ‘Senses of Life’ collection includes Sage Meadow, Harbour Grey and Rose Dust.

Exclusively Show 2024

Eight more colour options are available with hardback luxury linen touch covers. The ‘Classic British’ range includes Graphite City, Admiral Blue, Maroon Beret and Racing Green, and the ‘Cocktail for One’ collection offers Mandarin Breeze, Lime Mojito, Raspberry Fizz and Blue Lagoon.

Each journal features an emotive story starter, unique to the colour of the book, on the inside front panel – a daily reminder to create, chronicle, journey, invent, think and discover.
