One of the new products we introduced this year is an A5 Webnotepad. It is 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 or 14 x 21 cm. The paper is 90g, ivory, 96 sheets. The top of each sheet is micro-perforated for clean and easy removal. We currently import lined for the large size, but it is also available in dot grid and blank. Suggested retail is $26. You can read more about them here.
As a leftie fountain pen writer, I prefer notepads to notebooks. When I finished my No. 16, I thought I would give the large Webnotepad a try. I normally don’t use hard bound writing products because I find them intimidating to put pen to a blank page (Writer’s “Buck Fever”). Much to my surprise, I now carry around the Webnotepad instead of a regular pad. The extra hard back increases the stability for writing.
The time and the quiet to write by hand happens more during my weekend bus commute to the country, or sitting in an Adirondack chair in the backyard–not at my desk. I like a notepad with some heft. It seems to encourage serious thinking.
I would like to get feedback on the A5 from Rhodia Drive readers. Do you like the size? Would you prefer dot grid or blank to ruled? Most important, does it make writing enjoyable for you?
I have five A5s for review. If you would like to enter, please comment on this post with your name and email by Thursday, October 16th. Your feedback on the Webnotepad is welcome–what you like and constructive criticism. Thank you so much.
