What with email and blogs and facebook and so forth, I haven't 'written' something by hand in so very long now.
Bought this to multi-function as a daily planner from the date of delivery (which was sometime in April) and as a personal diary on the prior pages for Jan through March. Very happy with my purchase.
The red is rich and deep, the binding excellent, the paper of a high quality paper. Couldn't have made a better choice.
