The History of Filofax

You might recall back in February we mentioned a file written by Kevin Hall, that was still available via the Web Archive.

I've since been in touch with Kevin and he has sent me an updated version of the file. He has also kindly given us permission to host the file in our files area in pdf format.

It goes in to a lot more detail than the original file and brings the history of the company fully up to date.

We would like to thank Kevin for his hard work in putting this document together and for letting us share it with you.

A Chronology of Filofax by Kevin Hall, April 2010



  1. That is a very interesting history and I had no idea that the brand had gone through so much. Thanks for sharing!

  2. A very worthwhile and scholarly history you've put together here Kevin. Thank you very much.

  3. Thanks for working on this and sharing it, Kevin.

    A lot of iconic devices have come and gone (e.g. the manual typewriter, the original Palm Pilot, Apple's Newton/MessagePad). I hope the Filofax will remain with us for many more years to come.

  6. I hate to make suggestions of projects that I can not contribute to, but...

    Does anyone know of an archive or online collection of old Filofax catalogs?

    Do we have the resources to put one together?
