Recommended Posts

Greetings FPN Members!

 

I am in the market for a leather cover for my Taroko Enigma A5 notebook (148mm x 210mm x 18mm).

After reading the various reviews on FPN and NanamiPaper.com, I am eager to invest in a GFeller kip leather cover.

Would anyone have experience with / knowledge of the Gfeller Kip Hobonichi Cousin A5 cover (148mm x 210mm x 17mm) fitting the Taroko Enigma notebooks?

 

I have scoured the Internet but have been unable to find conclusive evidence of the same.

Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

Pretty much up to you. Everything in your post is rather obscure. The Hobo has fans but, compared to other diaries, it’s a blip. Gfeller Casemakers’ notebook covers are superb but there are only a few of us users here—everyone else gets by with less expensive covers. And this engima thing? Soor, Never heard of it. I have Steve’s Hobonochi Techo cover (t’s exquisite) and I can tell you that if the enigma is EXACLTY the same dimensions of the Hobo you are referencing (exactly), it will fit fine. Steve’s templates and his construction techniques leave no room for error or for slop. His covers fit precisely.

 

Precisely.

 

You can always call but, seriously, Steve doesn’t have a sample of every weird notebook on the planet. You could send one to him and he might be able to test fit but don’t ask him to make a custom cover for you unless you want to wait a few months and are prepared to pay handsomely.

 

Full disclosure: I know Steve and I created some of their promotional and instructional video materials. I have no fiduciary relationship with Gfellers but I have absolutely no objectivity either. They make fabulous stuff and their merchandise is worth the wait and the price. If you’re not prepared to spend the money or to wait, don’t bother.

Not sure about fit but I am another huge Gfeller fan. I have 8 covers and love them all. They are my everyday use covers.

Hi delhirox

 

Quick question - is the A5 gfeller cover you refer to the same size as the one sold on the Nanimi Paper site? If so the Taroko A5 wont fit it - btw I thought the Taroko notebook was well known and in the wrid category at all.

 

Hope this helps from another forum member.

Taroko Enigma A5 notebook (148mm x 210mm x 18mm).

Hobonichi Cousin A5 cover (148mm x 210mm x 17mm) fitting the Taroko Enigma notebooks?

Probably not. That 1mm is huge for products from Gfellers. It would be uncomfortably tight, probably buckle something in an unpleasant way. Steve’s products are NOT one-size-fits-most. The fit is exact.

Thanks a lot for the response folks! Apologies I missed the responses due to notification settings.

 

I ended up ordering the Gfeller hobo A5 to go with my nanami seven seas journal. Taroko recently launched A5 leather covers, which I will use for the Taroko books.

 

Thanks once again for these helpful comments!
