Large grid-ruled Candy Code 4-subject Notebook Manufacturer: Miquelrius As an aficionado of grid/graph/squared/quad ruled paper, finding good paper at a price I'm willing to pay is a challenge. The Miquelrius Candy Code 4-subject Notebook in the large size with grid ruling is a current favorite of mine. The large size in grid rule has 140 A4 sheets of 70 g paper which are spiral bound, and are perforated for easy removal. The sheets have 4 holes on the left margin. This suits my purposes, since I use book rings to keep loose sheets together. If you want to use the sheets with a US three-ring binder, you'll need to punch additional holes (and trim the top margin). Each page's ruling, heading box, and right margin are printed in one of four colors: orange, green, red, or blue. I would prefer one color per notebook, but Miquelrius' one-subject notebooks have far fewer sheets. Bleedthrough is non-existent with all of the pens (extra fine, fine, and medium nibs) and inks I've used with this notebook. Feathering with extra fine and fine nibs is non-existent, and with the lone medium nib I tested it is minimal. Showthrough is minor with extra fine and fine nibs, except for my wettest fine which causes moderate showthrough. Pens and inks used in the photos below: Pilot Prera fine, KWZ IG Red no. 3 Pilot Prera fine, R & K Solferino Pilot Prera fine, KWZ IG Turquoise Waterman Phileas extra fine, Iroshizuku Kon-peki Waterman Phileas extra fine, Namiki Blue Pilot Custom 74 fine, Iroshizuku Aji-sai Pilot Custom Heritage 92 fine, R & K Alt-Goldgrun Pilot Custom 823 fine, Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun Bexley Jitterbug fine, Iroshizuku Yama-budo Aurora Ipsilon fine, KWZ IG Green no. 4 Pilot Varsity medium, turquoise ink While there are higher quality notebooks, they also cost more per sheet. I paid US $12.99 for my notebook, which is more than I would like to pay, but is (obviously) not more than I am willing to pay.
Hi, This is a review of the Fabriano EcoQua A5 Spiral Bound - graph 5mm notebook. See more at http://fabriano.com/en/267/ecoqua http://i.imgur.com/IDSu8Se.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/XNZwtje.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/PWNDPuZ.jpg http://i.imgur.com/OKEvYtY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/drpaYuM.jpg Pros: 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. Cons: (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. http://www.dickblick.com/products/fabriano-ecoqua-notebooks/ http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008VSMK4M/ Thank you for reading, Sofia
