A5 Slimlines...

Spotted on Facebook from Filofax UK this afternoon:

Ok... with everyone chatting about A5 slimlines I feel the need to reveal that there WILL be an A5 slimline in the range thanks to your requests (see, we do listen!!) ... it will come in two colours, scarlet and black and I will hopefully be revealing the pics on here VERY soon.... how does that sound?

Seems they have been listening.... thank you Filofax...

  2. The personal filofax was the thing of the 80's... slimlines will be the thing of the 2010's

  3. This may solve the small page/ big book issue! Big pages in a slim book!! I can see many people using a full size A5 at home and/ or work, and putting only the pages they need to carry around into their slimline.

    And yes, I agree with you Steve, I think slimlines (whether as a satellite to a full-size book or as the main book) are the modern choice. They rival electronics in portability, yet have the physical aspect that electronics can't match.

  4. Laurie and Steve,

    I have seen the new Slimline A5. It's in the Adelphi style leather which I feel is aimed more to the female market. Does anyone from Filofax even read the great ideas from your blog?

  5. I agree that I don't care for the Adelphi, just not my style. What I REALLY want is a Guildford slimline A5. With that awesome pocket on the inside cover for holding tickets and papers.

  6. my joy shouldn't surprise anyone. hmm.. adelphi you say? classic would be nicer, but i'll just be thankful for a slim a5... hopefully i'll be able to *wait* (and afford one).

  8. Hi Alice, this particular slimline A5 they were referring to was the Adelphi. Despite its smaller ring size, it has a big gusseted pocket inside the front cover and a note pad in the back, both of which add bulk and prevent this from being a true slimline. I've heard the A5 Luxe, which is new this year, might be more of a real slimline because it has 20 mm rings. I haven't seen it in person though so I can't say if the binder itself is bulky.

    We continue to beg Filofax for a true A5 slimline! Meanwhile US companies like DayRunner have been making slimline binders for a long time, but they are 8 1/2 x 5 inches, slightly different from A5 and with a different hole/ rings configuration so the pages are not compatible.

  9. Thanks very much for your reply. The Adelphi looks ok but I'm not completely crazy about it. A cherry classic slim A5 would make happy! It's a pity they don't do it.
