My friend and fellow blogger, Lady Dandelion, suggested a swap some time ago for either the Exaclair Quo Vadis Habana notebook that I received from Exaclair or the Rhodia Webbie that I had purchased. Since I really preferred the paper in the Habana ( however as soon as the blank Webbie is available I will own one) I agreed to trade the Webbie. I also knew that since she is in Sweden, it would be much more difficult for her to obtain a Webbie.
The trade was for this lovely Letts of London baroque notebook, in brown. This is a lovely notebook, from the outside.
However, inside is a different story. The paper is not even close to the quality found in the Habana or the Webbie. With most fountain pens, the show through and the bleed through are bad and although I am disappointed with this notebook it is my current journal and I will just confine my writing to one side of the paper. As LadyD noted the paper is only lined on one side, leaving the back side for sketching or whatever. If the quality of the paper were better that would be great, but...
It does have a nice pocket in the back, I ribbon marker and a decent elastic closure.
