Bought this a whim because it was on sale. What a great notebook, fantastic paper quality, smooth and quick drying but also shows the properties of the ink wonderfully. I already plan on getting more

The perfect sturdy notebook

The paper is super smooth (it takes ink and pencil beautifully) and the size and layout are just right. It is also so well constructed as to be nearly indestructible. I love this notebook.

The Sold Out Notebook

The logical prime 80 page B5 notebook is a logical size to record trip notes. That it is a sold out item says it all.

Amazing product

Smoothest pages and any kinda ink or pen doesnt feather or bleed through

Very nice to practice

Good quality paper. The lines are a bit small, so Fines and EFs will work best here to practice calligraphy. Otherwise, it's great for all writing, as well.
