  1. Paperblanks makes beautiful notebooks and diaries with off-white paper. I've used various Paperblanks notebooks for journaling and found the paper to be of good quality. Not overly smooth (i.e. not coated), but well-behaved with all but the wettest fountain pens and with a nostalgic feel, like old paper. Having been so encouraged, I bought a 2019 diary from Paperblanks, in the expectation that the paper would be the same. Guess what? it isn't. At first glance and first feel, the paper appears to be the same as that used in their notebooks but in fact it responds totally different to fou

    Diary Written On Floorboards

    https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-44265475 Nothing to do with fountain pens...or ink...or fountain pen-friendly surfaces... but I found this BBC story on a diary written on floorboards by a carpenter in France from 1880-1881 to be fascinating. In my time here on FPN, I've read many a topic on peoples' opinions on keeping their journals/diaries for posterity. I'm curious to know whether stories like these affect your views or if it's just a different time now that it's easier for more people to document everything on the Internet, which is Forever.

    Hobonichi Techo Cousin And Techo Planner 2018 !

    The Hobonichi Techo planner and Techo Cousin arrive in October. New in Europe are the Techo Cousin A5 planners.

Something new to enjoy, Catherine. http://www.sakurafountainpengallery.com/en/boutique/hobonichi-notaboekjes-amp-papier.
  4. While perusing Badger and Blade yesterday (as it seems a number of us do), I found a running thread with this title and wondered if it could be adapted to FPs. So to break the ice, here's my starter for 10: Pen - Conway Stewart 58 - UK Ink - Pilot - Japan Paper - HP 32lb Letter - US (Yes, I did carry a ream back in hand luggage !) Notebook - Clairefontaine A5 - France Diary - W H Smiths mini leather A6 6-hole refillable - UK Is it a goer?

    Tomoe River Diary

    Hi, I am wondering if anyone knows of a perpetual diary made with Tomoe River paper. There is a company in Australia that makes one, however shipping just costs too much to make it worth it, so I am looking for one made in the US. Thanks http://www.bookbindersonline.com.au/collections/notebooks-journals-tomoe-river-paper/products/3-year-diary-perpetual-diary-journal-by-midori
  6. Hi! I have diary where I write personal things and journal about general stuff. Wonder if roller ball pen would be suitable for documenting. I know that it has water-based ink and I used that one in the past I remeber. The result was that some water that spilled from glass and got on diary later washed my writings. The pen I used was not exactly with roller ball end but it was something that reminds a blue wick but plastic one. I don't know the correct term. Usually I use oil-based pens but wanted to switch to water-based roller ball pen because I heard that is gives smoother writing experie

  8. I ask this out of idle curiosity. Personally, I don't know any form of shorthand, and don't intend trying to learn. The train of thought was set off by contemplating all the notebooks I've filled with things that have little lasting value, even for me. Then I was reading how Samuel Pepys, whose 17th century diaries are now considered historically significant, kept them in a form of shorthand which was well known in his time, Shelton's Tachygraphy. That saved paper, and gave them a measure of security from people who hadn't learned that form of shorthand. So, does anyone keep their person
  9. Can anyone help me to ID this planner? The image is originally from this blog post on Design Sponge. It has everything I'm looking for: spiral-bound, weekly notebook format, dated but no hours, perforated corners, refillable... I've spent a few weeks so far googling my fingers off to no avail. Thought I'd try here to see if anyone has any idea what it is. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
  10. Hi all, Another review of under-the-radar stationery goodies: custom leather and half leather notebooks by BomoArt from Budapest, Hungary! I think I found them via another online shop carrying a small range of their products which looked very interesting, especially their notebooks They're combining a range of nostalgic/romantic/steam-punkish prints with leather spines of various colors to mix and match after your fancy (their web shop is pretty well made too!) Among others I picked this blank A5 notebook with dark brown leather spine and prints of a nostalgic aviary. The brand na
  11. I've planned this purchase for a very long time! I've written a little review of their BomoMemo lately, and this week I went back to the store to get my diary for 2015. http://kepfeltoltes.hu/141220/P1240075_1_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg http://kepfeltoltes.hu/141220/P1240064_1_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg http://kepfeltoltes.hu/141220/P1240058_1_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg As I wrote earlier in the other review, the paper designs have amazing detail and the leathers are beautiful as well! Everything they offer is hand-made and the quality is top notch. It just feels great in hand! http://kepf
  12. As my usual P1JP diary from Letts is no longer made, I am thinking of using a pocket-size Moleskine. However, I would like to know if the paper in these is suitable for average fountain-pen ink. In my diaries, I use Parker or Waterman black and blue-black most of the time, in a 45-year-old Parker 45 with fine italic nib. This combination has been fine on Letts paper, so I am hopeful it would work on Moleskine paper as well. Any advice appreciated, thank-you.
  13. Hi all, I mentioned a diary company in a recent thread, who produce diaries to order, starting from any month and in a range of sizes / time periods. My partner ordered a 18 month "Slimline" (just under A5) diary starting on the 30th of December 2013, and ending July the 5th 2015. You can choose layouts - page a day, week to view, 2 weeks to view, & others. This one has 7 days (all given equal spacing, no squeezing the weekend into the same space of a single weekday) on one page, and the facing page has a 5mm grid print. You can also have lines, or blank on the facing page (with this

    New Diary.

  15. Hello, I was wondering if anyone out there has any recommendations for diaries with fountain pen friendly paper. I am currently using an 18 month Moleskine, but I get pretty bad feathering and bleed-through with it. I am returning to work in the new year so would ideally have something with times in it, but will consider other options. Cheers Chloe
