Gillio A6 Mia Cara/William Hannah A6 Notebook/planner

After completing the review of the new William Hannah A6 leather disc-bound notebook/planner last week I had a sudden idea spring in to my head that I had to try out...

Yes you guessed it, instead of the ring bound organiser of the Mia Cara, would the disc-bound William Hannah A6 notebook fit the outer jacket of the Mia Cara... in short yes!

And the colour match is quite good too.

It fits in perfectly. 

The William Hannah leather A6 notebook doesn't have any pockets so using it with the Mia Cara outer jacket is a way of solving that should you want pockets.

The disc-bound system is a lot more compact compared to the 23mm ring mechanism, this results in about a 15mm reduction in width compared to the Gillio organiser section, so the pen slot in the spine of the Gillio Mia Cara organiser section is still very useable with even more space than normal.

Thank you to Gillio Firenze for supplying the A6 Mia Cara, and to William Hannah Leather Notebooks for the A6 Notebook.

Guest Post - Filofax Winchester Price History by gmax

I created these graphs of price vs. time using old price lists I’ve seen and the Bank of England inflation calculator. The exact Filofax models are indicated here in the captions – I believe they are all equivalent, except that the 1937 model used has 1” rings instead of the 7/8” rings on all the rest.

On this data, the price of a Winchester in real terms remained pretty much the same for half a century. Then, a couple of years after buying the company, David Collischon took a decision that would spark a huge boom, but would also plant the seed for an equally huge bust. He decided to virtually double the prices across the range, and position the product as something exclusive, which you could use to organise your life. You can see the massive price increase on our graph reflected in the 1983 data.

The strategy worked very well at the start, with Filofax becoming a premium product. Annual sales revenue increased by a factor of 120 between 1981 and 1987. But, from 1988, cheaper competitor products and falling sales sent the company ever deeper into crisis, and the “golden age” of Filofax drew to a close.

Thank you Max for another informative post. I had forgotten what I paid for my Winchester back in 1986!
