  1. I’m looking forward to trying these, but will there be versions with unlined or graph paper? That is my only beef with Clairefontaine paper in general– too many products only come with ruled paper.

  3. Just checked the vendor’s website. It says 80 g paper. Oh well, I didn’t realize what that really meant.

  5. Karen,

    Like GrannyKass, I bought a couple of Webnotebooks and found that they have the 80 g paper inside. I thought the new version was already on sale. I haven’t opened them yet. Should I return them to the vendor?

  7. > I just can’t figure out why all of these companies seem invested in copying one anothers designs. <

    I’ve wondered that myself, Sophie, but after reading all the years of the back posts on notebook fetish sites (Black Cover, Moleskinerie, Notebookism, etc) it seems the form factors—with minor variations in size and materials—have more or less been perfected. I’ve never used the little pocket in any of my molies, sometimes the stitching gives out on Markings notebooks, and the elastic on Piccadilly self-destructs. If Rhodia has a better product, they’ll capture some market share.

  9. I just can’t figure out why all of these companies seem invested in copying one anothers designs. It would be cool in that light if people went heavy on the orange. Why does Rhodia want to look quasi-moleskine? They’re cool enough on their own (I’m a big Moleskine person). You think Rhodia is not expensive like Moleskine. I bought a letter-sized Rhodia pad for $8+. I didn’t know they had ever been inexpensive. I view this fetish as quite a bit less expensive than buying clothes at Barneys or getting cherry red convertibles. It’s comparatively cheap in that light.
