I LOVE this notebook!...
, January 1, 2012
I LOVE this notebook! The paper is very smooth, very clean. The line spacing is
perfect. I don't often use the headers at the top, but they're great when you
need them. I'm a fountain pen user, and we are always searching for the perfect
notebook and paper for our pens. This paper is fantastic - showed no
bleedthrough, no feathering, and the ink drying time is great. The pen I've used
so far with this paper is a gusher, and bleeds through just about every paper
I've used it with - except this. I've already recommended Maruman to several
other people, and I doubt I'll go back to those 'other' brands any time soon.

I was disappointed in this notebook, given that it was advertised as "fountain
pen friendly". The notebook design is nice, the paper texture is great, and it
has good drying times and very little show through, but I found that with I got
an unacceptably high spread and subdued colors with many inks and nibs.
The more expensive my pen and ink, the worse it looked in this notebook. I had
the best results with cheap on both fronts: Pilot Metropolitan medium point
using Noodler's Black ink. I had a random Preppy Platinum with the original ink
cartridge in it, and it worked fine as well.
My Lamy Safari medium nib was the worst of the bunch on this paper: spread
spread spread. I tried my Namiki with both fine and medium points and wasn't
pleased with either result. Lamy's blue ink looked like ballpoint blue, just no
saturation at all.
But worst of all is this: Iroshizuku Kon-Peki looks terrible in it.

Just got mine the other day and I hate to say it, but I'd much rather be writing
in my Rhodia and/or Doane pads.
The paper quality feels great and is slick - some people like that, some people
hate it, it makes no difference to me (I just use the right pen for the right
What really killed this notepad for me was the construction. It warped after a
day in my backpack and now all the pages flex up, so when I go to write in it I
sorta gotta push the page down to flush it against the table surface I'm on, but
then the cover buckles - it makes writing in it a total chore.
Compared to the Doane pads that have a solid cardboard back, or similar Rhodia
graph/spiral-bound pads, this Mnemosyne really didn't hold up.

I like very much this notepad, works smoothly with my Lamy Safary (Iroshizuku
Asa Gao blue ink) and Noodlers X-feather (black) and Pelikan FP 215.
I use a J Herbin blotter and leave inside the pad, the size of the blotter is
I'm gonna purchase another of this, a little expensive, but worth it.
The paper is very thin...

The paper is very thin and smooth; silky. 5 stars for Mnemosyne. I'm using it as
an agenda and I love how the 24 lines on each page are broken up into 3
sections; I don't even need to count off lines and tick-mark anything to get my
The sheets on the notepad...
, January 9, 2011
The sheets on the notepad are smooth as silk yet the drying times are faster
than what you would find on a Rhodia notebook. The lines are comparable to a
college ruled type and each sheet has a place for a date and a subject. The only
draw back on these I have found are the coiled binding. On some of my pages (2
being exact) the paper has been folded in where the binding meets the paper.
Other than that I have really enjoyed the notepad and would buy again.
The pages are exquisite....

The pages are exquisite. The lines are light, well spaced, and consistent.
Writing action with a good quality pen is excellent and allows frantic note
taking with little resistance. The binding allows the cover to be folded over
flat, keeping a neat appearance when open.
