Frank Smythson made history in 1908 when he created the world’s first practical, portable diary. Affectionately nicknamed ‘the Panama hat of books’, the diary broke the mould with its Featherweight paper and pliable binding, enabling it to be squashed, folded and rolled without becoming misshapen. From its stitched spine and supple leather binding to the clean, crisp leaves of gilded Featherweight paper, Frank’s original design remains virtually unchanged to this day. From the Panama diary with its iconic cross-grain leather to our collection of travel accessories, each bears the hallmark of Smythson’s unrivalled quality and the quintessence of craftsmanship. Pocket diaries are perfect for those on the go, while mid-size diaries such as the Soho are ideal for keeping even the busiest schedules on track from the office to after-work drinks, slipping perfectly into a handbag. Large diaries are at home on the desk and are ideal for organising your thoughts and calendar with a separate section just for notes, while organisers are a stylish way to enclose your meetings and schedules.

Each Smythson diary is carefully curated, with a wide selection of various shapes, sizes and layouts designed to be your personal companion. Whether you’re a pragmatist looking for a discreet pocket diary or a busy socialite looking to organise your busy schedule.
