The classic, large-format Moleskine ruled notebook, now in red.
Top Customer Reviews
1. It is a set of three Plain Journals.
2. The cover is made of thin brown card, similar to the card used to make traditional stencil plates before the linseed oil is applied. It is a soft-cover not the hard-cover as suggested in the Amazon listing that is usual on Moleskine books.
3. The journals are stitched the length of the spine, not stapled or glue. They resemble a high quality school exercise or copy book.
4. Each journal is 80 plain pages with the last 16 sheets detachable, 13x21cm, on a cream acid-free paper.
5. The inner pocket on the back cover is created by a fold over flap glued on the bottom edge; not the expandable pocket of hard-covered Moleskines.
All this makes for a more portable notebook that is lighter weight with the flex of a soft-cover making it more friendly to put into a coat pocket.
Moleskine USED to have a great name for its quality but I will not be buying any other Moleskine notebooks if this is the kind of paper they use.
Moleskine Large Ruled Notebook Red
I've used Moleskine notebooks for a few years now, but I usually buy the black-covered ones. I really like the striking bright red of this version. It's a proper fire-engine red, too, not dull brick like their Cahier range. The elastic closure, bookmark ribbon and even the edges of the back pocket are all colour-coded to match the cover. It's a really good look. I'll definitely be getting more coloured Moleskines in future.
If you aren't familiar with the Moleskine range, then I would recommend having a look at one in real life before ordering, as they are not to everyone's taste. The paper is light cream rather than pure white, and is thinner than other brands (it feels like 70 gsm - slightly lighter than photocopier paper). I rather like this, as it allows a 240 page book to be only 1cm thick (approximately). On the other hand, it means that you can't use a fountain pen or felt-tip as the ink would bleed through the pages. My favourite pen is the Uni-Ball Jetstream RT, which writes well on this paper without any strikethrough, so this is not a problem for me.
Secondly, the dimensions may be too compact for some (13 x 21 cm, or slightly narrower than A5). Again, this is a good size for a winter coat pocket, so I'm quite happy with that.
I use them in my work - where I research lots of topics, and need to take brief notes as I go. I can get all the notes I need about each topic on one or two pages. They're exactly what I was looking for - a little, handy-sized note book, that I can fill up in a few weeks, archive it, and move on to another.
Apart from that brilliant!
Shame because the notebooks look great.
I've ended find by accident some really cute notebook at Ikea of any place, with a rubber band to close them, and kraft carboard kind of cover, where you can write on both side. Not as good as Clairefontaine or Oxford (brands I used to buy in France, and you can get at some places in the UK) but definitely better than this marketing scam.

Clever design. Each notebook has a small pocket to hold loose notes. The last pages have a perforated line to make it easier to rip out. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Amazon Customer

Lovely milestone pads! Colours are beautiful - not large but big enough (small A5 size I would guess).Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
These are my favourite kind of notebooks. I keep a pencil under the elastic at the top.The lines are faint enough that writing with pencil reads really well.Published 1 month ago by monkey5ive
