Ogami Small Hardback Plain Notebook - White by Ogami
I bought two of these as they're perfect for my needs and the hardbacks look beautiful despite some issues*. Paper made of stone?....Calcium Carbonate is the main component of shells of marine organisms, snails, coal balls, pearls, and eggshells [wiki] which is pretty much like Gesso. Only this paper feels different to traditional Gesso.

Don't expect the paper to look or behave like ordinary paper - it isn't. It feels like a medium soft silicone sheet which takes every drawing medium I have and transforms it to another level.

Another gifted game....

This may appear superficially the same as the other Tomb Raider games, BUT, it's not....Really! is this it!!!where is the challenge?

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a gift, 23 Feb 2013
Really looked forward to this title, I went through the hoops to install it - you have to log-in to Origin servers to install. In around 30mins the game was installed only to find it is DirectX11 only. No Joy for me and I am thinking EA has made a mistake by limiting the hardware configuration.

I am forced to rate the game, but, as I cannot play it (yet) I will give three out five. EA will get one out of five.
