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.
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.
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.
Apart from that brilliant!
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.
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.
I'd seen a picture of these books a while ago but was never able to find them again until now. For Moleskine books, they were very affordable - the colours are cute and true to the images shown and I'm glad to have received three.
- Affordable - I got 3 for £5.99
- Very pretty colours - a pastel lavender, pink and lemon yellow.
- It's so hard to find plain notebooks nowadays and I finally did - and they're aesthetically pleasing to look at.
- As I began working through the books, I started to realise why the were so cheap - there are barely any pages! Pretty ridiculous actually. I know Moleskine is starting to price their products due to their brand name now and not so much the quality in a lot of ways and this is evidence of that because there's barely enough pages in each book to call them notebooks. I don't think them being 'pocket-sized' or mini can excuse that.
- The outside of each book is easily scratched and dirty since they're just made out of thick card paper and not plastic or wood like most full-sized notebooks. So in your pocket or the bottom of your bag, they are definitely going to get dirty.
