After a tough day at work I arrived home to see the Levenger box next to the door of my apartment. I took it inside and unpacked my new Circa notebook. The only other Circa I've used is the one in the Simply Irresistible pack, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect with the leather foldover, but when I lifted the Cordova Circa out of its box I was surprised at how soft, yet solid it was. This notebook, to me, is like a really competent friend. (I might have actually said, "Hello, friend!" to it.) It's sturdy enough to fold over for note-taking, but squishy enough to be comfortable to hold and carry. The leather is tremendously nice. The cover is a bit thicker than I expected, but it's not cumbersome. It's the letter-size, so it's quite substantial, yet still fits in my tote without awkward heft or cramming.

I ordered the aluminum Circa rings in oxblood to go with it. It's all-around a very sharp setup--the Cordova cover itself is in no way stodgy or lacking in taste, and the aluminum rings give it even more professional pop. I use the daily planner as well as the paper it came with for note taking, and it's easy to keep all of the day's thoughts, activities, and records organized. The pen loop is a bit big for my Lamy Safari fountain pen (another competent friend), but as long as I push the pen down and use the clip on the cap, it stays put in the pen loop.

I gave four stars for value because this was definitely an investment (with a dash of frivolity thrown in for good measure) for me. However, the hounds that bay, "You paid how much for a notebook?!" nip at my heels less the more I use it and realize it's more than a notebook. I know I've only begun to scratch the surface of its utility. The craftsmanship is outstanding, and I don't doubt my Circa will be a reliable companion for many years to come.

Making a statement about quality

By 

from Miami

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Cordova Circa Foldover Notebook:

I've used Levenger products for many years. My first Circa was a gift from a senior lawyer who got basic foldovers for the whole team. I soon upgraded to the leather foldover and used it every day for 15 years until I finally wore it out. With some regret, but a lot of anticipation, I replaced it with the Cordoba foldover. (I added 1.5" copper-colored aluminum discs for some extra panache.)

The Cordoba foldover has all the utility and versatility that is Circa's signature. It also has a rich feel and a luxe appearance that transform a notebook into a statement.

Comments about Levenger Cordova Circa Foldover Notebook:

This foldover notebook is just beautiful. It look so expensive and goes well with my black small foldover, since it has the black trim. I have gotten many compliments already and will enjoy using it for years to come. I highly recommend this notebook.

Given as gift, received as "fine art"

By 

from NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Cordova Circa Foldover Notebook:

I gave this as a gift to my friend who cherishes the beautiful Levenger fountain pen present from last year. She is a writer and loves notes and journaling. Her initials were embossed on the cover, a good touch to show your care and that the gift is special. My friend said that it was like a piece of fine art and she would devote some wonderful project to its pages.

My problem with Levenger notebooks

By 

from Baton Rouge

Comments about Levenger Cordova Circa Foldover Notebook:

The idea is great but i have always found two things that make me end up not using levenger notebooks and returning to moleskine etc
a) The plastic discs look cheap, jiggle around a lot and adds to bulk
b) The outer covers are wider than the paper itself (mainly to hold a pen). This adds substantially to the bulk.
If Levenger customer service is reading this, I hope in the future you can consider releasing a version that matches the notabilia sized composition books and maybe a version without the extra girth due to the pen loop.

The cordova cover looks really elegant!

Comments about Levenger Cordova Circa Foldover Notebook:

I am more than satisfied with this product. I have a Circa Notebook already but when I saw this color I couldn't resist. The leather is smooth and of good quality. I love these notebooks because they make you look professional while keeping you extremely organized. I was able to give my other notebook to my sister who has been coveting it for awhile. Don't forget the Circa punch too!
