Filofax brochure - Circa. 1980

We can't be 100% certain on the exact date of this brochure, but Monday 4th June occurred in 1979 and 1984. I'm focusing on 1980 as the publication date based on the source of the brochure and his correspondence with Filofax UK at that time.

Free for All Friday No. 628 by Nan

This is the time of year that many of us start preparing for various winter holidays. Because of COVID-19, many people are not able to travel or get together with family members. Have these changes made an impact on how you use your organizer? Have you downsized because your activities are more limited? Or have you needed to move up to a bigger organizer because of having kids and other relatives at home more, online orders to track, and so on? Of course, since it's Friday, all discussion of ring-bound organizers is welcome!

Guest Post - Prototype Malden - Sally

Thank you to Sally for submitting this post. We know prototypes or pre-production samples do find their way out in to the wilds. I have reviewed a Holborn that turned out to be a pre-production sample and I own a prototype/evaluation sample of an Eton Compact that never made it in to full production

I acquired this organiser a couple of years ago. There are a few differences between it and the pocket Malden that went into production, as illustrated in these photos.

The popper is flat.

The inside embossing only has the Filofax name, not the model name or the description ‘antiqued leather’. 

The pocket configuration of this organiser is identical to the regular pocket Malden except the prototype lacks a full height pocket on the inside back cover.

The last photo shows the comparison between the smooth, vibrant red leather of the prototype and the much darker, textured leather of the crimson Malden.

It’s an interesting addition to my Malden collection.

Thank you Sally for sharing this with us all.
