This is a review of the Fabriano EcoQua A5 Spiral Bound - graph 5mm notebook.
See more at http://fabriano.com/en/267/ecoqua
It has nice paper (85 gsm). The paper is quite smooth, but not as smooth as Clairefontaine.
There is minor show-through and no bleed-through.
(Personally, I cannot think of any.)
Things to consider:
The paper is off-white.
The notebooks are available in different binding, sizes, formats, and cover colours.
The dry time is from about 20 to 25 seconds.
The covers might not be very durable to some people, but I have no problems with it.
I bought it from an art store for about $5.00 USD. Amazon has it, but with a higher price.
Thank you for reading,
