- Almost perfect, but... Review by Margaret
- I loved writing in this book from the first page. I use various fountain pens in the process of taking notes from books that I am reading. All the pens have nibs designated "fine", though some are finer than others. This is relevant because my main pen has a lovely wet nib which, every few pages, at the end of a page will feather. This is very disappointing on such beautiful paper, and I am writing this in the hope that the manufacturers will be able to fix this problem. The other thing that I didn't like about the book is the way that the cover is bound into the notebook itself. This is intrusive and takes up valuable millimetres of space at the end of lines for quite a number of pages! OK, so that's my criticism out of the way. Otherwise this is beautiful, nay dreamy paper to write on for 99.9% of the time. In general it takes writing from my wet nib with no problems at all, and there is barely any show-through, so that writing on both sides of the page is fine. The cover is card but stands up to a surprising amount of backpacking abuse, as mine, half-full, still doesn't have bent corners. I'm amazed at that. The binding is sewn and glued, and apart from my complaint about the cover, is very good indeed. I find myself becoming very fond indeed of this notebook, but I shan't give up my hunt for the perfect notebook yet. (Posted on 6/01/2018)
