From computer monitors to whiteboards, we use the landscape format every day; this modern notebook uses all the advantages of that wide horizontal format. Its top spiral binding gives the journal a broad work surface, providing plenty of room for outlining, writing, editing, and notating. Traditional notebooks waste space with their wide margins; the landscape notebook narrows the margins and frees up more writing space. The spiral binding allows the notebook to lay flat. Finally, left-handed writers find a left-side spiral difficult to navigate around; this notebook frees the lefty from constantly rubbing the binding.
Both pens and pencils glide over the premium paper. It holds ink exceedingly well—even that of a fountain pen. Most fountain pens will not bleed or feather so you can use both sides of the page, unlike cheaper papers. The paper is a bright white with soft green lines printed with vegetable-based inks. The line size and color are comfortable yet unobtrusive—they are designed to support but stay out of the way of your writing. The letterpress cover impression has a low-key retro look.
The company that makes these durable notebooks is based in Baltimore and is part of a third-generation family company in the business ("slowly fading”, as the owner describes it) of printing and binding books. With decades of bookmaking and finishing knowledge to draw on, and using environmentally friendly materials, the company's team of printer operators, binding operators, and designers has formed a new division, dedicated to making sophisticated notebooks for people who still desire to put pen to paper.
