As usual, the Rhodia paper is wonderful. Smooth and very fountian pen friendly. What surprised me was the side staple. It was so easy to hold while writing and comfortable to write on while at a desk. Highly recommend.
This notebook fits easily in my tote bag, and I can carry it anywhere.When I have a few minutes I can easily practice lettering or write notes. I can then easily add pages removed from this notebook into my planner or other binders as needed. It is very fountain pen friendly and shows shading, sheening and shimmering properties of various inks well.
I was looking for a larger notebook and was happy to find that Truphae carried an A4 sized one that is side staplebound. Even better, one from Rhodia, as it is one of my favorite brands for fountain pen paper. I know that for some, this might be a touch on the big side but it truly is perfect for me. I do a lot of writing/note taking for work and I often struggle with spiral bound notebooks due to both the discomfort of my hand hitting the spiral binding and/or scanning my notes without having to rip out the paper. I like having my notes together in one place and this allows me to do so while still being able to easily scan pages without issue. Also, I am a bit old school in that it's very important for me to get my thoughts down using pen and paper. Given its size, I am able to write out my proposals/project ideas and pretty much fit them on one page -- this is great for me in terms of presenting my ideas in meetings without having to flip through my notebook. Seriously, that extra bit of space provided in A4 is everything to me. Additionally, the paper quality is excellent for the price so it ticks all the boxes for me. I will definitely be coming back in the future to purchase more.
