An Exclusive Orient Express Creation




A True Legend

In 1887, four years after Orient Express’s first voyage, Frank Smythson opened his first stationery and leather goods shop in London. Two decades later, he designed the Soho notebook, which is now being reinterpreted for Orient Express.

The Leather

The Soho notebook is handcrafted from textured lambskin.

The Paper

Smythson’s signature pale blue Featherweight paper is Forest Stewardship Council® certified.


The Soho notebook features an Orient-Express monogram created by famed graphic designer Philippe Apeloig on the cover.
