The Journal Shop and it was a great representation of the colour! I love it. Inside, the paper is velvety smooth, and very easy on the eyes, with light rulings, and creamy, delicious looking paper. The contrast of the tea brown cover with the cream paper is just yummy.
Fountain pen users will be delighted to know the Midori paper of this journal holds up very well to fountain pen ink. Actually, it's exemplary. For paper to be considered fountain pen friendly, in my humble opinion, it cannot feather. I do accept bleed through and show through, but feathering is a no-no. In this case, there is no feathering and no bleed through. Show through with wet inks is perfectly acceptable. Win-win. Not only that, ink seems to glow on this paper!
|Oops. Commenter Pelahale pointed out I wrote "no showthrough" when clearly there is. My bad. SORRY! No bleed through, low show through, relatively anyway.|
- Lies flat
- Really nice cover.
- Very elegant appearance.
- Wonderful paper.
- This particular model is very convenient to carry.
- More, bigger sizes needed!
The Midori World Meister Volume 1 Dainel journal is very elegant, very classy, and very scrumptious. It is a treat to write in. I only wish it came in a size with even more pages so I could fill it with more fountain pen ink. What a beautiful collaboration between French and Japanese works.
Note that I won this notebook in a giveaway, but I remain as unaffected by this as possible. But it's still pretty gorgeous, innit?
