Looking For A New Journal.



Recommended Posts

Almost done with my Ecosystem journal, and I'm looking for something a bit nicer to continue. I'm debating between a Large Leuchtturm and a Large Rhodia Webnotebook. I'm looking at blank paper, and this new notebook needs to be of the best FP friendly paper I can get, and it needs to be able to handle flex nibs with minimal ghosting/show-through, also needs to open flat. Opinions? Anyone happen to have experience with both and would be willing to share your thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Avoiding ghosting will be better in the Rhodia. But the Tamoe journals available through the listing in Market Watch will perform miracles with flex, no matter how much ink gets laid down. They take my OBB & 3B nibs & still leave the back of the page legible.

I have both the Large Leuchtturm and Rhodia. If you're set on these two brands, the Rhodia will get you further with regards to bleedthrough. Having said that, the Webbie will still bleed with certain flex/ink combinations, only less than with the Leuchtturm.

Black n' Red comes in A4 (wirebound or casebound) or A5 - I believe it is in both styles as well. I like my A5 in wire, and prefer my A4 in case, but do have one wirebound.

I've been really happy with Paperblanks journals, they're bound so they open flat, the covers are absolutely gorgeous and sturdy, and there's practically no ghosting unless I'm using a larger italic nib (even then I have to look to see it, it's not really noticeable). Paperblanks does give you some feedback, it's not as slippery-smooth as some people like, but I prefer it that way.

I've been really pleased with Excompia Journals.

The Midiori is a great journal that can be personalized very easily. I use field notes in mine all the time.

Leuchtturm 1917 is no better than Moleskine, which is to say hit or miss. My 1917 is one of the worst I've had, making a good EF nib look like a medium and all but unreadable.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
