1.0 out of 5 stars the new one is so poor that I wouldn't even use fountain pen on it, 11 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointing - the paper is cheap and flimsy and certainly not the quality it used to be. I compared this notebook to a small plain one I bought a few years ago and the comparison is astounding. The older one had paper which was the weight of thin card and could have supported a range of mediums, the new one is so poor that I wouldn't even use fountain pen on it, as I suspect the writing would show through to the other side. Moleskine are obviously cutting quality to save money and hoping to just keep trading on a reputation which was built up over previous decades. Certainly this standard of paper will not acquire any favourable reputation in the future. My recommendation would be to look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is just OK, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Book has nice pictures, but there isn't anything particularly new in it. Same sort of ideas that are already out there on the vintage theme.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Quilt Admirer, 30 Aug. 2007
A very disappointing book. In my opinion none of the quilts merit a second look. They are all quite ordinary and you won't find any with the 'wow' factor which would inspire you to make them. I was hoping for some fresh ideas, but unfortunately they are not here.
