The ink-friendly notebook is absolutely lovely to write on, and can even handle my old OMAS which is so gushing that it’s been used as an emergency fire-hose at the local model village (they saved the bakery, even if it turned purple for a fortnight).
I love stationery. That's no big surprise. But I also love this planet we're on and over the last few years have become acutely aware of how much plastic is used, everywhere. It hasn't stopped me loving stationery, but it has made me think more than twice before buying products that aren't biodegradable. It's difficult. Even when I think I've found something great, it then arrives in shrink-wrapped plastic.
Available in a range of cover hues including 'Myrtle Green' - as GI as it could possibly be, frankly - these sturdy little notebooks have robust sewn bindings, a handy pocket in the rear cover for tickets and the like, and about half the pages are perforated for easy detachment in order to compose epic billets-doux in recently mastered exotic languages, crucial international peace missives or, more likely, quick notes for the dashboard about how the parking meter is out of order. They can handle some rough treatment, though, that's for sure.
