I’m always on the hunt for fountain pen friendly notebooks and have this sickness: even though I don’t really USE them regularly, I can’t resist buying them. I’ve tried Moleskines, Leucchturm, Rhodia WebNotebooks, and Clairefontaine – and recently succumbed to temptation and had to try the Quo Vadis Habana. As a new user of the Habana line, I thought I’d share my impressions of this turquoise beauty.
First of all, how great is this color?? Of course I couldn’t resist it. How great does it look with the 2014 Limited Edition Neon Coral Lamy Safari?
I chose the blank journal because I like having the flexibility in case I wanted to use it for journaling, but also can’t write in a straight line to save my life. So I created some ruled/grid guides to place behind the paper. It works AWESOMELY. The red stapler is to weight the page down enough to see the lines in the pic.
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the cream color, but I actually really like it.
Also, I need to comment on how soft this paper is. Cause it’s like SILK. I literally want to just sit and stroke it. Mmmm, soft. AND it lays flat. Like, easily and without any resistance. It’s like a miracle notebook.
And of course, it’s amazing with fountain pens!!
All in all, I am really impressed with this notebook so far. Once I actually find a regular use for it, I’m sure I might have more. But for now, I really am glad I bought it.
