Great cover! The notebook is brilliant too. Love it with the 100 page inserts,
the paper is smooth without feathering though agreed, there is some shadowing
with dark ink. Toned down colours and lovely canvas makes it professional and
nice to hold, plus it won't get worn out from changing bags etc. Very good
staple to have on hand :)
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 :)
This pen is really nice to write with - with other lighter colours people have
mentioned a washed out colour, but I think it actually looks gorgeous. The kind
of thing which would appeal to fountain pen users.
The only thing is make sure to use it for documents which won't be exposed to
severe temperatures. Also - probably don't use it for official documents like
passport applications etc. - just in case.
Some papers don't absorb the ink as evenly from a light scrawl (partially
because of the fine tip), but a little extra pressure remedies this. Otherwise,
usually gives a really clear line. I was using a black .25 slicci and a 0.5
Pentel Kerry as HG for my everywhere stationery, but now I just use this for all
notes on the go. Plus it won't smudge, unlike pencils :p
Got to agree with the others :P I never get anything in pink, even when it's
punk :O But this is pretty sweet. It's neatly small (though efficiently so) with
with huge handles, easy to pack everything into, grab and run after a lecture.
Fits all sorts of stuff, I have small post-it notes, a triangular drafting
ruler, scissors, post-it tabs, tiny white-out+stapler, bunch of pens/markers
etc, block eraser, 5 pastel highlighter pens in the base... It's very well
designed and a pleasure to carry around even when I don't need everything in it.
If it wasn't so pencil-casey I might be a dork and take it to gigs xD (In the
back of my mind that's still an option lol). Love it :P
These are awesome :D I have a mac with a glass screen, and now I can write/draw
around the edge. It's easy to clean. Just a note - if you let the pen sit a
while without using it, when you start writing again the colour will be darker.
You do need to shake the cr*p out of it for the really powdery pastel colour,
but that's a given.
I wrote on my (pine) desk to test it for lulz, it was hard to scratch off that.
Water helps. Any non-porous or shiny surfaces should be fine. Windows, cars, dvd
players etc... anywhere there's plastic/metal/glass. The colours are really
bright. I loove it ^^
