Flat Black Journals
Posted 06 February 2012 - 22:36
The Moleskines are perfect in size, grid, and cover, but less-than-stellar paper.
The Clairefontaines and Rhodias have better paper all have distracting designs or logos (and no, I have no interest in "covering them up" or "personalizing them" - I just want them flat black).

I recently bought 3 Moleskine notebooks in a cellophane-sealed pack from Staples and have only now discovered, thanks to FPN, that they are not really FP friendly. I wish I had read this BEFORE buying them... Such is life...
I like the plain black or orange Rhodia notebook with stapled binding. Wirebound bindings, like on Clairefontaine, tend to restrict how much and how comfortably you can write on a particular line on the reverse side of the page.

It does seem like it's user dependent. Some people don't want ANY show-through. If that's the case, then they may not like the Leuchtturms.
Journal preferences are affected by the nibs used, the inks used, whether the writer is willing to accept some show-through, and what types of binds they prefer. There isn't one single journal that rules them all. If there was, the traffic on these forums would be orders of magnitude smaller
