Desk Notes

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

I’m getting a lot more time at my desk, these days. Pocket Notebook (my mobile solution) usage is way down. Like most people, I’m not getting out much.

I've not been a huge lover, to be honest, but then, I'm also one of the few in the world who wouldn't use Field Notes because of the paper quality. So, how bad are Moleskine (and Field Notes) with different pens? And if you're not a fountain pen user, do you even care that the paper doesn't cope with a Conklin Durograph laying down a lake of ink with every stroke? (No, probably not!) Okay, well here are the specs on some Moleskines....
