Beautiful blue book.

Help locating a particular kind of journal.

About four years ago, a friend gave me a journal. It is blue, pretty thick (250-350 pages, I think), and best of all, flexible (not hardcover - but the cover is still thick material). She bought it at Chapters or Indigo.

I would really, really like to get another journal. I filled that one up two years ago, and have been using Moleskines since, but I miss the blue one. The only clue about its origins? A tiny stamp on the back, "Iquelrius".

I've tried googling for "Iquelrius" and journals, and I've searched the Chapters/Indigo site. One of my friends works in a Chapters and says they no longer carry that "kind" of journal.

Any idea where I might be able to order one online, or any stores in Toronto or Buffalo that may carry them? I am pretty desperate to find another.

Thanks in advance!

Best answer: I have a bunch of notebooks from the Miquelrius company. They are great. Sounds like it could be a Flexible Notebook.

Best answer: that squiggle? is an "m".

Response by poster: i feel stupid, but not entirely responsible for posting the wrong name. i tried to remember the name from memory (as the journal resides at my best friend's house) and google'd random things like "iqulrs" and "iquilirs" (Google kindly asked if i meant 'squirrels').

so when i e-mailed my best friend to ask for the name, she too overlooked the m as a squiggle.

i love MetaFilter.

thank you, thank you, thank you.

Yeah, don't feel stupid. Logo designers, take heed!

Their website designers should take heed too! It's so frustrating to have to click five or six times just to get to a single product, and then begin the whole process again to look at another one, especially when the category names aren't self-explanatory.
