Quo Vadis is a worldwide brand, producing planners for many countries around the world. Some products are only available in certain countries or areas of the world. This is the third post in a series of reviews of planners that are available from Quo Vadis UK (which does ship internationally). The first review post in this series was of the Time and Life Planner, and the second post was about the Minister Prestige planner.
This post is about the day-per-page Habana Daily 21, which is not in the US lineup but is available for worldwide shipping from Quo Vadis UK. You can use XE.com or a similar conversion to see the prices in your currency. You can contact Quo Vadis UK for international shipping costs information.
The Habana Daily 21 has a full page for every day, including weekends. The book measures 13 by 21 cm (just slightly more than 5 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches tall). It has the Habana cover which is firm yet flexible and soft to touch, and is available in black or red.
It’s a very classy-looking book.
The Habana Daily 21 is made in France and is in six languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Dutch. The smooth ivory Clairefontaine paper is designed to give an exceptional writing experience. There are lines for every half hour timed to the hour from 8 am to 9 pm if you want to use the book as a planner, or the subtle times are easy to ignore if you want to use it as a journal (as Steve does, which you can read more about in his guest post here).
The Habana Daily 21 is packed with features. There are monthly planning pages:
And there are annual overview pages for the current and following year.
There is a ribbon placemarker, and perforated tear-off corners so you can choose how to mark your page. You can use the ribbon to mark the monthly planner page and the tear off corner for the day page if you like.
In the back of the book there are full color maps and international information pages.
Inside the back cover there is a pocket, and a notes booklet is included.
The notes booklet has lined ivory paper with perforated pages. Replacement booklets are available to purchase separately when you fill yours up.
The book is compact, lightweight and very smart looking. It’s perfect as your go-everywhere companion or staying on your desk.
