This is my faaavourite...
, June 13, 2011
This is my faaavourite notebook :) 6mm lines mean you can fit more writing, use
your fine pens, and it has lovely smooth paper of that faint honey white with
light, fine blue-grey lines which don't overpower pencil or pen. It's the right
cloth bound thickness that it falls open easily.. I use this as my everything
notebook, it comes everywhere with me - plus B5 is more portable than A4. It's
my favourite page size, visually more proportionate than A4. The double page
spread is an inviting workspace :) Allocated lines for headings and date
encourage good recordkeeping for a book without perforations, I just use it in
chronological order and know I won't lose any of my notes. Horizontal and
vertical measurement markers help divide up a table quickly. The paper loves
noodlers bulletproof black + sailor/lamy EF nibs :)
Does not need a cover - I used it like this at uni for a year. It gets a little
tattered and tufty at the corners, but doesn't fall apart. I change bags more
now, so I've started using the black systemic cover designed for it. Good
canvas, adds some storage for loose leaves, looks more professional at work
(even though it's definitely not just work on the inside).
Oh - and lots of pages and unimposing lines means it's also good for sketching
out draft design concepts etc.
The best notebook! Aesthetically pleasing and so practical :)

I'd use this notebook...
, May 11, 2012
I'd use this notebook for school or anywhere as long as I'm at a desk, since the
covers are soft and too flexible to support it without a hard surface
The other reviews are correct, the paper is wonderful, the 6mm ruled lines are
great, and the 100 page count is awesome, you'll never run out of space
BUT, I have to take away one star for the binding. First of all, you can't fold
the cover around to the back like with a spiral bound. Also, glue binding is
typically inconsistent from page to page; what I mean is, some pages are glued
closer to the binding than others--it seems to be every other page in this
notebook! Also, the glue is often inconsistent from the top to bottom of a
single page...what happens is, when you turn that page, it wont lay flat. You
practically have to break the binding every time you turn a page!
If this was a twin ring notebook with a hard cover, I'd give it 6 stars and buy
ten of em right now!
Otherwise, everything else about this notebook is worthy of 5+ stars!

Love those notebooks! Fantastic paper to write on with fountain pens!
The layout is especially nice for labnotes!
