This large A4 journal has a lovely tan front and back cover with a matching elastic closure. The wire coils are the twin wiro set up and look quite nice. There is a full-sized pocket on the inside back cover of the journal. Both the covers and the pages have rounded edges. The paper is cream with grey-violet lines; all 200 are perforated. The colour scheme is quite lovely.
I love how this notebook feels - it's huge and solid and I love the massive stack of paper in it. It has a great look to it. Like the A5 Multi Event journal, I wonder if the elastic will wear out over time, as it's rather loose to begin with.
I love that the cover is semi flexible!
- There are 4 vibrant colours for you to select from, light tan, dark tan, cool grey, and black.
- Lots of paper!
- Performs well with pencil, ballpoints, and gel ink pens.
- Full-sized pocket at the back of the journal. It's huge.
- Cover material scuffs easily.
- Hard to close cover or turn pages are not properly aligned on the coils.
- Not fountain pen friendly.
- Bleeds through.
- Show through.
- No sheen.
I really like the look of this journal - the colour scheme is very attractive and the size of the journal is very appealing (although a little intimidating when I think about how much writing space is actually in the journal itself). However, because I am primarily a fountain pen user, this notebook would not be a top choice for me because of the paper's inadequate performance in the fountain pen test. My favourite of the Nu notebooks remains the Nu: Elite Polypropylene notebook as the paper does the best with fountain pens.
