Review by Laura Cameron
I love all the Galen Leather Co. products I have tried, so when I received a handful of their new EveryDay notebooks to review I was super excited.
We’ll start with the complete set. The A5 EveryDay Book set ($32.00) includes three A5 notebooks, guide sheets, a leather blotter and a fun zippered case. Each A5 notebook is filled with 128 pages of blank 52gsm Tomoe River paper. The covers are made of cardstock and are handbound (stitched). The notebooks themselves measure 5.7 x 8.25″ (14.5 x 21 cm).
The paper is, in a word, lovely. It is thin, but sturdy. The ink dries fairly quickly and while there is a bit of ghosting on the reverse side, there’s no bleeding through or feathering.
But if A5 size isn’t your jam, there are tons of other sizes: passport, pocket, regular (Traveler Notebook sized), B5 and B6.
So now for the giveaway. You are entering to win:
- TWO A5 notebooks + guides + leather blotter courtesy of Galen Leather (we’re sorry to break up the set but we used the third A5 notebook to test and the zippered pouch had an unfortunate ink exploding incidient)
- TWO Regular notebooks + leather blotter courtesy of Vanness Pen Shop
