Pocket notebook sighting

[20th Century Women (dir. Mike Mills, 2016). Click either image for a much larger view.]

Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening) wanted to be an Air Force pilot and went to flight school, but the war ended before she was done. It makes sense that her pocket notebook would be one with a military background. It’s this notebook, its pages sewn in signatures, with evergreen covers and the word Memorandum in lime cursive. The notebook opens from the top:

I bought a stash of the side-opening Memorandum some time ago. They’re extremely well-made notebooks.
