"Ich schreibe immer noch auf Prantl-Papier" (I am still writing on Prantl paper), writer and Nobel Prize winner Thomas Mann noted in his diary. And what is good enough for Mr Mann certainly will do for aspiring writers and stationery connoisseurs today. As one of the oldest stationery suppliers and fine printers still in existence, Prantl produces a range of house papers suitable for pen and ink. In honor of one of their most famous clients, they also introduced a series of pads and memo books Thomas Mann could have used. The "Thomas Mann Schreibblock", an A5-sized note pad contains 50 sheets of ivory white writing paper and makes a perfect filling for your private portfolio — or mine, since I am using it myself. Both the notepads and the memo books come in various colors. They are not listed in Prantl's webshop, but can be ordered by phone and sent worldwide.
