"Made in the fashion of Dad's old threaded-seam notebooks"
"in the standard 8x10 inch format of the most popular composition notebooks used today"
Don't be fooled... this isn't remotely similar to a composition book. The paperback covers are really thin and flimsy... You'll definitely need a firm surface or desk to write on.
Also, while it doesn't strictly say anywhere that the the book can lay flat (and I should have known as it is perfect bound), coming from a company calling itself "Lay Flat Sketchbooks", I was thinking I'd be able to use this as a sketchbook... but the extremely stiff binding and very flimsy paperback covers prevents practical use of this as a sketchbook-- you'll need to use one hand to hold the book open the whole time you're using it.
Couple things to be aware of if you're comparing it to a classic lined composition book.
1) This is a little bit bigger than a regular composition book you'd get from Mead for a dollar. If you're used to those classic composition books, or you're looking to put this notebook in a cover designed for a composition book, you're going to have trouble.
2) This is perfect bound (glued), not sewn, like a classic composition book is. This means that you're not going to be able to fold it back on itself the way you would with a regular composition book, and you'll have to "break" the spine in order for it to lay flat.
UPDATED AS OF 10/1/2016 : So I'm back to write a little update, now that I've actually attempted to use this. The dots, as I mentioned before, are really close together. In fact, writing in them is actually difficult, unless you plan ahead and then fill in. I actually had to skip a line every time I wrote something on the 'list' I was making so you could actually read it. Also, I don't know if this is every book, but in mine, the book is not bound straight and actually varies from front to back. I'm working through it since I don't want to just waste it. Definitely wanted to share this.
Changed the rating from a three star to a two star.
But the main disadvantage of this notebook is the way a fountain pen, Lamy 2000, writes on it.
The ink is absorbed by the paper making it look thick instead of fine.
If you use regular pens or pencil the notebook is good.
The Rhodia dotpad paper's quality is much better for fountain's pens and the dots are not intrusive at all.
Unfortunately the Rhodia dotpad is a notepad a not a notebook/journal.
Can anybody recommend a notebook/journal with the same quality as the Rhodia's dotpad?
