Lemome Notebook Review

John Bosley Reviews 11 Comments

Last year my brother gave me a Lemome notebook as a gift. I had never heard of the brand before and, from what I can tell, it is only sold on Amazon. Of course, with any notebook that I’ve never tried before, I was curious as to how it would perform with fountain pens. The paper is surprisingly thick, but …

Pebble Stationery Co Antartica Notebook

John Bosley Reviews 12 Comments

Last year I had the opportunity to review the Pebble Stationery Co Sakura Sumiko notebook. This year I was contacted again to see if I had an interest in reviewing their newest limited-edition notebook, The Antartica. While I don’t use pocket-sized notebooks as often as larger notebooks, this one was too pretty to pass up, so let’s take a closer …

Nuuna Flexcover Notebook Review

John Bosley Reviews 4 Comments

Nuuna notebooks remained a bit of a mystery to me until recently. They don’t seem to be very popular in the States, so I’m sorry to say that I’d never even heard of them. Someone commented on a blog post suggesting I try them, which first brought them to my attention. Then I noticed that someone I follow on Instagram …

For some reason, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Profolio Oasis notebook. I don’t have anything against it, but it just doesn’t check the boxes I want it to check for a notebook. When I found out that Profolio started offering a different version of that notebook, the Profolio Oasis Light, I wasn’t very excited to try it …

I am a fan of all of the Kokuyo papers that I have tried before, so when I came across this Kokuyo KB paper I grabbed a ream of it to try out. I knew that if it was anything like the paper in the Campus or Century Edition notebooks I would be quite happy with it. I sure hope …

John Bosley Reviews Leave a Comment

Once again, I have found a new brand of notebook that I haven’t tried before. This is always something that excites me. I know most of the brands that are on the market and know which ones I like (and which ones I don’t), so finding something new is always a welcome surprise. I picked up a Kyokuto Expedient notebook …

Figurare Notebook Review

John Bosley Reviews 4 Comments

I’m always a little excited to come across a notebook brand that is less common or that I’ve never heard of before. Years ago I came across this Figurare notebook in San Francisco’s Japantown and picked it up. Even though I’m not a huge fan of spiral-bound notebooks, the paper felt great, so I was hopeful that it would be …
