I received a pack of three Back Pocket Journals a week or so ago. I chose the Tomoe River edition since I knew the paper was going to be fp friendly and has more pages. I ordered it from Curnow Bookbinding & Leatherwork and was pleased to receive it in about two days! The Tomoe version comes with blank paper but not to worry, Steve sends a nice lined card that can serve as a line guide and/or bookmark. I find them totally worth the extra $2.50 more than Field Notes since FN is usesless to me for fountain pen writing.

No affiliation - just wanted to share news of a great product.

I've started to make some of my own. Just a bit of thin card for a cover and I'm using QC bank paper for the pages. Cut both to 140mm x 180mm and centre fold. A couple of staples on the crease then just trim off the excess when folded shut and - hey presto! I also bought a rotary cutter with a perforating blade included and it's really quite good. Top it all off with a leather cover (Fenner of course) and away you go.
