Grey – A5
My Essential’s By Clairefontaine
We are not exaggerating when we say we use these notebooks all the time (we use the dotted ones!). In our study of 18th Century costume we constantly need a notebook at hand, and though we LOVE pretty, it’s the My Essential’s range that really ticked all the boxes for us.
Just check out some of these specs:
- 8 pages worth of Contents pages. (we stop and start costumes so this is REALLY useful for us!!!)
- 184 numbered pages
- 90 gm2 paper in a creamy colour
- FOUNTAIN PEN FRIENDLY
- Acid Free
- Smooth satin finish to the pages
- PEFC certified
- Elastic band closure
- Ribbon bookmark
- 2 x pockets
- and this design is DOTTED.
Named as the world’s best paper – and the only paper to still be manufactured in France, where the company is based, this really is a practical and lovely feel notebook.
The cover is the same as all teh Agebag range by Clairefontaine – it has a kind of textured old leather look. It also has the logo subtly pressed in the corner. We like that kind of detail!
Personally, we use it with the Herbin converter ball point pen and never have any trouble with bleed-through’s or the ink coming through to the otherside. Very pleased and very happy and though we scribble alot in them, we think our notebooks look pretty cool!
