Letts 200th anniversary and 2012 products!

Letts is coming out with some very exciting new products for its 200th anniversary in 2012!

Check out the Letts 2012 online catalog here.

The first thing that caught my eye, on page 5, is their special 2012 diary to commemorate their bicentenary! I absolutely must have one! And, how cool is the photo of the very first commercial diary from 1812, I would love to see that in person!

There are several products to commemorate the 2012 Olympics in London, including a countdown diary.

The academic-year diaries are available now on  Here are some that look especially cool:

The beautiful Butterfly weekly diary comes in A5 or A6 sizes.

The Festival planner comes with a gel pen and pull-out planner.

The Academic Your Design has a clear cover you can put your own picture into, and a week + notes format!

The diaries listed above also come with a ruler/pagemarker that fits on the spiral binding!

Getting into the 2012 diary selection, one that really caught my eye is the Image range on pg 42-43 of the catalog.  It has a weekly format where Saturday and Sunday have MORE space than the weekdays! There's also space on the weekly spread for your To-Do list. AND, there's monthly grid calendars! The A5 Lavender one went straight on my Must-Have list.

Backing up a little bit, the covers and format selection on the Renaissance range are excellent.

And there are more beautiful covers on the Blossom and Kyoto ranges.

I was happy to see the Scotland diary is still included in the range on page 54 of the catalog.

Their Noteletts notebook range has been expanded with some excellent cover choices.

I'm really happy to see that Letts has such a great selection of beautiful, fun, colorful covers. And I'm very excited they've added new formats to their range, especially the week + notes and the inclusion of the monthly grid calendars!

And I know I'm several months premature, but Happy Bicentennial Letts!  Wishing you at least 200 more years of successful business.


  1. I was especially intrigued by the Limited Edition Westminster day per page and the Sovreign day per page formats, since day per page diaries are a special interest of mine.

  2. Steveareno I didn't see the LE Westminster, can you tell me which page it's on? I like day per page diaries too.

    Also I meant to include the Rhino (pg 58) with tabbed monthly dividers and monthly grid calendars in the weekly pages:

  3. I looked again and found it! Here it is:

    I had seen their leather-cover diaries online before but thought they only came in weekly view! Great to have a real-leather daily diary option.

    Yet another diary I meant to mention: The Business A4 Two Pages Per Day:

    Wow! That must be a huge book!!
