The person I gave this to was thrilled with it.

very nice journal

The quality of the book is excellent. Feels substantial. Has a ribbon bookmark...a nice touch. The dotted grid is perfect: pale enough to ignore if you want to sketch, visible enough to guide your writing. I chose this one because I really liked the Forest at Dusk pattern. but I am pleased with every aspect of the book.

Love it!

I’ve never bullet journaled before but was inspired by this company’s notebooks to give it a try. I love this notebook! It does bleed through the pages slightly if you’re using heavier markers, but otherwise, it’s definitely a keeper!

Gorgeous Journal

A5 notebooks are too small for me and finding something larger with comparable cover options is difficult so I was really excited when I stumbled onto these. Very cute and appears to be well made, I am nearly done my current bullet journal and looking forward to beginning this one. I have started to set up some of my common spreads in it already and am generally happy with the quality. I use fountain pens pretty much exclusively and do think the paper could be a bit thicker as there is some bleed through with even my fine nib pens; and Pigma Micron pens ghost through the pages. Overall I am happy with the journal and believe I would purchase again in the future.

Perfect Journal

I'm so close to finishing my other journal and cannot wait to begin this one. I wanted something larger than A5 and as close in size as I could get to my current 7x10 inch notebook. The cover is slightly textured which is neat. Overall the journal feels extremely well made with nice thick pages. Let's not forget the gorgeous artwork too. In the future I believe I will only be buying these.

in love

i love this journal! it's exactly what i was looking for and as described. i was initially worried about bleed through since i use a fountain pen, but the pages are thick enough that it's not an issue. i'm pretty particular about journals and i will probably only use these exclusively going forward!
