In this Digital Age of ours, the concept of sitting down with a pen in hand to write on real paper (gasp!) may seem silly and old fashioned. But people who think that way likely don't have a Filson Leather Notebook Cover and Notebook to scribble their thoughts in.
This elegant, leather-bound notebook with an oil finish measures 9-by-11 inches and is filled with all-weather Rite in the Rain waterproof paper.
It comes in three colors (cognac, dark brown, and natural), and has a pen-holder tab as well as two slot pockets inside to hold lose paper or photos. Get one of these for your dad and you might get something special in return. Like the next great American novel.
