letts party

I couldn’t resist the title. I bought four Letts of London baroque notebooks (A5) today – two black, one red an one brown. Since I didn’t even know that they existed in A5 and the store had an offer – 4 for the price of 3 – I couldn’t help myself. The paper seems so smooth and nice and cream coloured. One odd thing is that only every odd paper is lined – the other are blanks. I don’t think I have seen that before. I haven’t more than doodled a little in one of them, but I think I dare to say that it is more fountain pen friendly than Moleskine (the feathering is a disaster) and prettier – and maybe more fountain pen friendly – than Letts regular linen bound and the old style 80g Rhodia web notebook. I really like this flower-faux-alligator-bonded-leather pattern. It measures 21*15 cm, has an inner pocket (I love to stuff notes and postcards and unfinished letters there) and a rubber band. Very nice new acquaintance. I think I’ll try it out properly tomorrow. Unfortunately I think it is a kind of Limited Edition. I really dislike the LE concept. If I like things I want to be able to buy them even after a limited time and if I don’t like them I don’t buy them anyway. Even toothpaste comes in LEs here. Silly silly silly.

  1. These are lovely! More FP friendly than the Rhodia webbie? Really?

      I’m sorry – I should have written that they are better than the old 80g version of Rhodia – I’ve edited that now. I have not had the opportunity to try the new 90g version yet – this is such an undeveloped country when it comes to PIP – Pens Ink Paper. I’ll try to make a proper test of Letts Baroque soon.
