Hello Leo! Quick question:

 

What pen did you use to make the two broad strokes on either side of  'Natural Living'?

Hope you don't mind me chiming in.

I recently purchased a Nakabayashi Logical Swing notebook for only $4.00 from a stationery shop in the town of Hudson, which is north of us, and the paper is most excellent for fountain pens. I used my Hero 616 inked with Montblanc Red Chalk and there is no bleed through yet the paper isn't very thick.

yay, affirmation!  They're also one of the few that offer that specific lining too!  Must note that the Logical line belongs to them as well.

Thanks for the review! I bought a pack of 5 Nakabayashi Logical Swing notebooks last weekend for around 3.6USD and I think they are very good for the money. No feathering or bleed through with most inks I've tried on it, and only some bleed through with a 3.8mm Parallel pen and a Noodler's flex pen.
