  1. Emphatically and enthusiastically yes! Webbies would be even better with more paper and a lot less cover.

  2. No. First – I need that stiffness to write on when I’m away from my desk. Second – that ivory paper hurts my eyes after extended use. I much prefer the 90g white that comes with the Clairefontaine products & mourn the white paper Habanas.

    The flexible Clairefontaine notebooks are my choice when I want to slide a soft-cover into a leather cover. Better paper!
