MD Notebook A6 Artist Collaboration - Katsuki Tanaka
In celebration of MD's 15th year anniversary, the MD team invited Katsuki Tanaka and 14 other artists to get creative with the MD Notebook and enjoy the way you can write everywhere, even on the cover. Then they created a special-edition MD Notebooks with the artists' illustrations and writing blind embossed on the covers.
With the artists given carte blanche on an A5 MD, the original artwork is debossed on an A6 notebook.

About their artwork for Midori MD, Katsuki shares: "When you use a notebook with an embossed cover, the texture will unconsciously send a sense of comfort to your brain. That's what I succeeded in creating with my notebook! I hope you enjoy using every inch of it."
