We had a fun discussion this weekend with friends about notebooks. We all love a good notebook and we are all very specific about the type of notebook that we like to write or draw on.
Simon will go for a pocket notebook, soft paper with lines to keep in his bag. He uses it to write lists of things to do or work notes during a meeting. He often has several notebooks that he keeps for different subjects.
I do too. I have about 4 or 5 notebooks at a time. A couple will be for just sketching, the others for writing down all the things I need to do, work projects, shopping lists, work notes and to sketch. I always go for all white pages no lines.
For sketching I like the slightly longer Muji notebook with spirals (162x225mm) with white thick paper. I also like the large Moleskine and I have about 3 Famille Summerbelle notebooks that I use everyday to write thoughts, work notes and to do sketches.
When a notebook is full I keep it on a shelf in my office as I like from time to time to check my notes and look at my old drawings.
What about you? What kind of notebook do you like? What size and what kind of paper do you prefer? I'd love to know!
Here are some photos of Famille Summerbelle A5 notebooks featuring our City maps in different colours and our World map.
I chose specifically a thick white paper for each notebook as it holds very nicely on both sides of the paper when when you draw with pencils or write using ink.
