The Japanese RULE!!!!...
, October 12, 2009
The Japanese RULE!!!! I bought this one and the Campus spiral bound (see my
review for the blue one) and I am in love with these. I balked a bit at the
price I have to admit, but once I got these in my hands I realized they are so
1) The paper - smooth, light and fairly bleed proof. My fountain pens thank
2) The Binding - no matter where you open this notebook it will lay flat with
3) The Flippy Edges (my terminology) - I can't quit doing it! It does make it so
much easier to navigate your pages AND you can annotate on the "tabs". Oh the
OCD is just coming out with this one! The whole notebooks has such a delightful
floppiness to it because of the quality of the paper.
I like the size - it's 7" x 10" which makes it perfect to get in a smaller bag,
but still big enough to do some serious writing. The 6mm rules are slightly
narrower than most of the college lined notebooks I have and I like that very
much because I write small.
Now I have a caveat - I prefer spiral bound because I like to fold my notebooks
in half when working in them. These you can't really do that with. However, I
find that these will work GREAT for classes, note taking and anything in which I
need to classify my pages because of how you can navigate and the fact that you
can label or color code the tabbed edges to find your information more quickly.
So keep that in mind if you're like me and like to work with your notebooks
folded back. If you like working with them open flat this is the notebook for
YES!! it is worth every penny!
This is one cool notebook!...

This is one cool notebook! And that's about it... I certainly wouldn't recommend
pigment ink on this paper as it shows through, and the slanted edges are solely
for looks as you are not likely to ask yourself, "Was that topic in the
2-stripe-on-top section or the 3-stripe-on-bottom section? Hmm... let me see!" I
am also having a little sticker shock: for the price I'd like a bigger size and
a lot more pages! I DO like the "No." and "Date" page header, but the lines are
a bit too wide for my handwriting. Overall the design is beautiful and very
unique, and that I appreciate! The paper is nice but nothing spectacular, the
cover is nice in an understated ORANGE sort of way, and it's kind of fun to turn
it around and start writing from the back! Mobius notebook...? Not quite. In the
end it's just a really cool-looking notebook. So grab your Paracuruno and your
MacBook Pro and head over Starbucks! Well, that's what I'll be doing with it at
