Review: Furrow Books Notebook

Furrow Books was a Kickstarter project over a year ago, started by Aaron Zeller of the Zeller Writing Company. (They sell many popular brands of pens and notebooks, as well as other writing accessories, including their own handmade wooden items such as wax seal handles.) I decided to become a supporter at a modest level […]

Review and Giveaway: New Kikkerland Writersblok Notebooks

I’m very excited to be posting one of the first reviews of a brand new notebook line from Kikkerland. I reviewed their first Writersblok notebooks several years ago. Since then, they have introduced additional notebook designs, but these latest ones are the best yet! These notebooks are quite a departure from previous Writersblok products. At […]

Moleskine Monday: Office Stash

Here’s the latest photo of the spare Moleskines I keep in my office… You know, for emergencies… There are more at home…

Moleskine Monday: Voyageur Notebook Review

The Moleskine Voyageur notebook was introduced last summer, and so far remains a unique outlier in their product line. It’s an odd size, in between the classic pocket and large notebooks. It has a brown cloth-bound cover. It has a fancy die-cut paper wrapper with a travel-themed collage element. It has colored endpapers. I guess […]

Colorful French Notebooks

A beautiful set of notebooks, one lined, one plain and one squared:   Spotted at the French online shop Papier Tigre, where they have a lot of other gorgeous designs too!

Review: TWSBI Notebooks

I first heard about the TWSBI brand via the Fountain Pen Network forums, which are a great place to discuss and learn about all things pen-and-notebook-y. I personally don’t have a mania for fountain pens, but people who do are very picky about the paper they use them on, so I’m always interested to know […]

Review: Metro Notebook

I bought the Metro notebook about a year ago, at I think I had just stumbled across it while browsing around and searching for notebooks, and I was intrigued because it looked like a standard little Moleskine-clone and the price was really low, only $2.48 (plus shipping). They are no longer available on that […]

Review: Pentalic Illustrator’s Sketchbook, New Version

A few years ago, I reviewed the Pentalic Illustrator’s Sketchbook. I quite liked it but found that the paper was a bit thin and show-through was more than average. A commenter on that post noted that Pentalic had “beefed up” after these were initially introduced, and that seems to be true. More recently, I bought […]

Review & Giveaway: Stamford Notebooks

I’ve had my eye on Stamford notebooks for a while–  in fact, probably since they first started producing them in October 2013! In following their brand on Facebook, I was always impressed at the huge variety of colors and materials offered for their covers, and the fact that they are made in the UK. It […]

Review: Object Series Notebook

I love stories about notebook fans who turn to producing their own dream notebooks when they can’t find them anywhere else! Justin Woo wrote to me with his own tale of how the Object Series notebook was born: “I had never come across a notebook I was actively searching for: black, flexible leather cover with […]
