How to tell a Webbie 1.0 or 2.0 from a 3.0

Stephanie

If you weren’t aware, the famed Rhodia Webnotebook (the “Webbie”) has gone through a few transformations over the years – in part to our fans giving us feedback and suggesting ways to make subtle improvements upon the design. Our friend Brian Goulet at the Goulet Pen Company recently wrote a detailed post on the history of the Webbie on his informative blog, Ink NouveauClick here to read Brian’s post about the Webnotebooks.

  1. i got my first webnotebook (plain, A5, black) today, latest improved version, and i’m so scared you try to ‘improve’ it any further that i might buy lots at once… it’s absolutely beautiful and perfect as it is :D
    i’m an artist and regularly use a journal for daily thoughts as well as sketches, light watercololours, ideas, collages, etc.
    i think i will be using this notebook as long as i live and it exists for sale. a bit like a marriage. so after i die you can put a little insert sheet letting people know this is the diary a famous artist once used. i let you ;)

  3. Thanks for reposting my article!

    I’m glad you enjoyed it, Gun-Ik. Even though I’m an online retailer, I recognize that there are a fortunate few that CAN find these products locally! They do come shrink-wrapped like you said, so I thought it was important to point out how to tell the versions without having to open the journals.

  5. I’m so glad Mr. Goulet did this. It took me days to research which version was which, and because each notebook is shrink-wrapped, it’s hard to tell which is which at any given retail store. For a student like myself, $20 is a lot on a notebook (even if it is of such high quality) so knowing which Webbie is the most up to date is helpful to any new Rhodia buyers. Great article!
