A Notebook for Your Desk
Panobook is a panoramic notebook for your desk, and eventually, your shelf. Made of quality materials and thoughtful details, and includes a slipcase for archiving when you’re finished.
Panobook is currently on backorder and will resume shipping in a few weeks.
Simply put: I love this notebook. I have no interest in keeping any other notebook on my desk.
Designed for your desk.
The unique panoramic format (160 mm x 288 mm) of Panobook is designed to sit nicely on your desk, either in front of, behind, or next to your keyboard. We wanted to create a notebook that was always open and always within arm’s reach. The wide format is fantastic for a variety of uses, and gets the creative juices flowing.

Dot Grid
Featuring subtle guide markers.
Every page of Panobook has a very subtle dot grid, with a twist. We’ve included guide markers that make it easy to quickly draw three rectangles on the page, sized ideally for smartphone UI design or storyboarding. We also included edge guides to divide up the page and provide layout cues. The guides virtually disappear if you are not looking for them, but are very useful when you need them.

Quality Materials
Sweating the details.
We paid attention to every last detail in this notebook. The paper is super high quality, and performs well with a variety of writing instruments without smudging or bleeding. The front and back covers are rigid, with an amazing soft touch feel. Panobook is bound with a robust wire-o binding, which allows the notebook to sit flat when opened. We think you will appreciate all the care and attention to detail we put into this thing.

The Keepsake
A notebook meant to be kept.
Panobook comes with a slip case, which is meant to be the final resting place for your notebook. You can write on the spine to catalogue the notebook, and it looks awesome when you line several up on a shelf. We've noticed a tendency among designers to hang on to their old notebooks, and Panobook helps facilitate that.

Better than I hoped

It's a really insanely good desk notebook. What else can I say.

Great notebook!

I love the shape of this notebook! It really does offer a different approach to note taking, designing, etc. as it fits the way notepads never do, whether on your desk, on the conference table, or just in your lap. I use it both horizontal and vertical. The quality is 100% there, although, I have noticed the two corners on the unbound side have warped a small amount. Nothing major, but I definitely wasn’t expecting it from all their marketing around high-quality.

Track information

Both my kids love this product. Sometimes, it’s better to write stuff down rather than loading info into a phone. It just looks different written down and in most cases, it helps move forward on tasks.

I like it

I did have to separate the pages from the punch cut at the binding causing them to stick together. Could be caused by the bits being a bit dull or just the nature of the paper or the cut style. But I like the product very much. It’s perfect for my use and finding something with that format and foot print is about impossible. Love the slip cover idea too.

Excellence Executed

This is a great notebook for sketching, notes, journaling, etc. The hard cover equates into easily organized visual history. Recommended!
