Recommend, O paper lovers, an A5 journal for my daily writer.
Cream or ivory paper. Not white. Prefer unlined, can tolerate faint dots. I can write straight without assistance, thanks.
Rhodia has the kind of paper I prefer, in fact their webnotebooks are basically perfect but are essentially limited to black. And it is quite hard to find unlined ones.
Tomoe River paper is too thin for my taste, I use it for letters but there's too much ghosting for a journal. I'm in the middle of my last Leuchtterm1917 journal. Great quality all around but also too much ghosting. I write with wet noodle nibs sometimes, and sketch as well as write. Just want a thicker paper.
Hard bound. Of course must lie flat. Sewn not spiral binding. I do not tear out pages.
I don't do "bullet journals" so don't require any of those extra things at all. Just blank please.
When I google search all that comes up is Rhodia and Leuchtturm.
