THE REAL BEST ALTERNATIVE...

THE REAL BEST ALTERNATIVE TO MOLESKINE. This about my favorite notebook. The
paper is excellent - gives no bleed-through with a variety of my fountain pens.
The color is simple cream / off-white which looks good against a number of inks.
Most importantly, the things lies flat really well when you open it to write so
you can really use all the pages with equal aplomb. Nothing fancy here. No silly
pocket thing at the back. No pages which tear out. Just quality. Down with
Moleskine. The ruling in Moleskine is way too narrow. The paper is way too thin.
The product is just over-priced. Go Palomino! (I also love the Rhodia webbie but
Palomino is slightly cheaper and every bit as good in terms of paper with a bit
wider ruling in the lines, which I like).
