Who knew? Not me anyway. In searching for a reasonably prices fp friendly A5 notebook/journal I came across the Basicos brand on Amazon (UK) 300 Sheets for £18 – that’s 0.03 pence per page! At that price, with few reviews, it couldn’t be much good. Could it? So I went off in search of something better. Clairefontaine, Seven Seas, Taroko etc. All of which I enjoy using.


Recently deciding to do a Morning Pages – scribbling off three pages of stream of consciousness first thing in the am, never to be read again, and certainly not for showing to others, I decided to use a lower cost A5. Looking though bookmarked sites I decided to give a red Basicos Flexible Skin a try.


Imagine my suprise as it emerges from the Amazon cardboard envelope and I see Miquelrius, Made in Spain, Leather Collection on the paper band on the cover. 70 gsm. Had I taken the time to zoom over the image on the Amazon page prior to purchase, this would have been evident from the beginning. :headsmack:


Spiral bound 200 sheets for £8 too.


I’m probably the last person on earth to figure this out. But just in case .......
