The InkJournal dot grid notebook is a small, pocket-sized notebook with a firm cardboard/kraft cover. The cover is decorated with a really cool piece of art - a hand holding a fountain pen being dipped in a bottle of ink. It is all done in dots, which is really cool and pretty appropriate, given the name. The back of the notebook has a list of suggestions of things you can do with the notebook or ways it can be used. I like the way these notebooks look.
PERFORMANCE & FEEL
Not unlike the InkJournal classic notebooks for ink cataloging, the InkJournal dot grid notebooks paper may give way to your inks feathering and bleeding. I found this to be the case more so when the nib used was very wet.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C, was well-behaved - no feathering, no bleeding, and almost no show through.
- 100% recycled papers.
- Printed with vegetable-based inks.
- Books are hand-crafted using presses and production machinery that is powered by renewable energy.
- Made in the USA.
- Flexible notebook is small and can be put in a purse or pocket.
- Wet nibs feather and bleed through the paper.
These InkJournal dot grid notebooks are not designed and intended for cataloging your inks - they are multipurpose pocket-sized notebooks. They are meant to be stuffed in your bag and/or pockets for when you have an idea or need to remember something, or when you're bored and feel like doodling. I don't only use fountain pens, and I like to support companies that choose to use environmentally-friendly choices, like vegetable-based inks, recycled papers, and renewable energy, because I feel these are important for a sustainable future. I have many gel pens, roller balls, and ballpoints pens, so I can easily make use of these dot grid notebooks. As such, I have been toting one of these around in my "home bag" (the one I scribble my blog ideas in), and another in my purse along with my Field Notes, and Midori Star Traveler's Notebook. Yes, my purse is full. If you have gel pens, do give them a shot. Go green!
