Good afternoon everyone. Thought I would post some pics I took of my 149 (first few are underexposed for silhouetting purposes). She's almost a year old now =) http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8702_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8703_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8734_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8741_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8747_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8771_1024.jpg http://maia.site90.net/temp/photos/montblanc/_DSC8778_1024.jpg Regards, maia
Serious journalers know the trouble of finding truly good journals at a good price. Cares such as blank pages, no showthrough, product availability, and reasonable hope of future availability over a decade or more really narrow the options and, in fact, may leave no good option. Attached is a cost-value study I conducted in 2013 based on the cost per square inch of paper surface. Taken into account were features (cf., above) as well as dimensions, page count, and price with shipping. My preference finally fell to Kunst & Papier, Item #100295: (5) Hardbound 8.25 x 11.75 journals priced at $199.99. No, they aren't inexpensive and they are massive, but they will serve for a long time. I am opting out of the smaller, trendy journals which always seem beset by forum threads addressing a mysterious reduction in paper quality, availability, and the like. Also attached are photos of the newly-arrived journals. The MB 149 and eyeglasses illustrate the sheer size of these journals. The 149 is going to be busy for a long time . . . I hope it will be a long time before I have to order again, and that K&P will still be there.
