I checked everywhere for a journal as my "travel/scrapbook" and I stumbled on this through the Target website. Then, I went to the store and checked it out and I was beyond satisfied. There was a beautiful quote in the front, hard cover and high-thick quality paper. Other high end brands fell short in the paper quality department. I can write in any ink and pressed as hard as I can or even do scrapbooking and none of it will destroy the integrity of the paper on the other side. PERFECT! I would LOVE if this brand made other journals for different sizes, designs, and number of pages! MORE PAGES!!!
RECOMMEND ALL THE WAY!!!!
The smooth lined paper in these notebooks is very nice to write on and it IS FOUNTAIN PEN COMPATIBLE!
I tested the paper with Waterman, Shaeffer, Parker, Namiki, and Higgins inks with Waterman fine and medium nib, a Parker medium nib, a Pilot medium nib, and 2 Shaeffer italic nib fountain pens. None of the pen and ink combinations feathered.
There was some minor bleed-through with the italic Shaeffer medium nib, but none with the fine nib. [..] These should be made with plain covers and they would rate a 5 star style rating. [..]
