Where To Buy: Keep an eye on Eighty Pages on IG!
The notebook is quite thick, especially for a pocket-sized notebook. The pages are folded at the center and stacked inside each other. The binding is on the messy side - the holes are a little ragged looking. The notebook itself is decent looking but some more attention to the binding and folding of the pages would be nice.
The paper is thick and has some tooth to it. It works well with pretty much anything. it feels and performs like a high end sketchbook paper. I think it's the most fun to use with pencils, because of the toothy properties of the paper. Softer, thick leads look great on the paper and feel great going down.
- Great paper - a lot of fun to use with almost everything!
- Hardy notebook
- Messy binding. (It is hand sewn though!)
- Since it's so thick, it doesn't close easily (especially once you've broken it in).
This is a nice notebook with the paper being the highlight. I enjoy using it but I look forward to a few improvements: cleaner binding and a better spine design (not just folding the pages over - maybe smaller signatures would help the notebook close better).
Most Kickstarter projects improve over time so I look forward to seeing refined products from Eighty Pages.
