The edition featured here is the new Jet Black with Duck Egg blue Colorplan paper in the middle. The Duck Egg blue is very light and almost grey.

The dots are aligned and kept from the edges very evenly. The whole book is incredibly well-made.

These new editions contain all the features of the previous editions like the unique lay-flat binding, cloth cover, a slipcase, a heat-sealed ribbon and a self-adhesive business card hold tucked into the bellyband.

  1. Looks interesting. I’m not a huge fan of the green inner pages, but if they were brownish – like paper grocery bags – I’d be on that in a heartbeat! Also wish some notebook companies would add pre-programmed color schemes that coordinated with schools, sports teams, etc. without being “officially licensed products” that are only available from said schools, teams, etc. First world wishes…

  2. First thanks for doing the giveaway. I rather like their Charcoal Gray/Mint option. Looks like a really cool notebook & my current one will fill up by the end of the month. Not that I don’t have more notebooks, but you can never have too many, right?!?

  3. Ana- too many great color combinations!! Love the charcoal grey and mint, wine red and lavender, cool grey and tangerine, alpine green and peach- all of them!!!

  4. OOOOH I can’t decide if I prefer the Grey/mint or the Lime/steel blue. I would really love to have the mint and grey reversed, although now that I’m typing it …. a mint cover would probably get pretty filthy in my possession pretty quick. Kind of like why I can’t ever own a white winter coat. Who can do that? That’s bananas. All respect to the White Winter Coat Wearers! I digress. pretty notebook! Stay healthy, WADesk!

  5. I like the wine red and lavender combination, but I’d really like to see a dark purple cover. The lime and steel blue is also eye-catching.

  6. Ooh I love so many of these combinations, but especially the Lime green/Steel blue and the Grey/mint. I would love it if they could reverse the mint/grey – but now that I’m typing it out a mint cover would probably get so filthy in my possession – kind of like how I can never wear a white winter coat. Who can do that? That’s bananas. All Respect to the White Winter Coat Wearers! I digress – lovely notebook!

  7. I am liking this Jet Black with Duck Egg blue, but eventually I would like to see some patterns on the inside covers.

  8. My god I’m such a newbie. I’d never seen Moo before the charcoal grey/mint combo is amazing. I would definitely buy one once i’m assured of a job.

  9. These look amazing.
    I’d like a dark blue cover with light grey or tan center pages, lined paper upfront and blank in the back. I wonder how a pencil loop built into the lay flat binding would work?

  10. Ooooh I haven’t looked at the colors for Moo notebooks until now, but I’m loving the bright red cover with blue paper!

  11. The charcoal grey/mint is my favorite of their current offerings (also they spell grey correctly, so bonus times )
    Now, wrap that same mint with a chocolate brown, and that would be nice. Also, sounds tasty.

  12. Keep looking at this notebook and wanting to buy. Don’t know why I haven’t yet, maybe all the other notebooks waiting in my office to be used!
    Would like a dark green/silver-grey combo.

  13. That Moo notebook looks very interesting! My wife orders her business cards from Moo. I’d like to see an orange cover with grey pages in the middle.

  14. I really like the simplicity of this. Maybe a grey herringbone with yellow liner pages?

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. I do love moo products and have used their notecards for years. (also fountain pen friendly) This notebook is a beauty too. I think a nice blue with grey accents would be lovely and would have the $20 fly out of my pocket!

  16. How did I not know about these? They’re gorgeous!

    I love all things pink, so a deep rose cover with paler innards would be lovely. I might have to shop for matching ink, though (heavy sigh.)

  17. I have resisted these notebooks because I really prefer dot grid paper. Now I have no excuse The lime green with steel blue is my favorite color combination, but the way they have paired colors make them all appeal to me. Thanks for the chance to win this.

  18. Ooooo…i love the red one and the new black one. Notebooks and ink are the only times I pick colorful things, but the black one is so sleek. I need another notebook like I need a hole in the head, but when has that ever stopped anyone??

  19. I apologize that I am so profoundly boring. A dark brown cover, and white paper, is all I would ever ask for.

  20. I’m a sucker for a charcoal stationary product, but the teen vampire in me is always keeping an eye out for a nice, deep purple.

  21. I’m an Aries Girl so I’m torn between the Wine Red/Lavender and the Berry Red/Turquoise. (Though, if I’m being 100% honest, I would never turn down one of these notebooks, no matter what color combo is offered.)

  22. The wine red/lavender looks lovely! I’d love to see a forest green cover, perhaps with a pale yellow inside.

  23. They’re all great, but I’m always partial to reds, so wine red and lavender! Looks like a great notebook and so glad it’s available in dot grid now! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  24. jet black has my vote and the colorplan pages seem like interesting idea. do you know the approximate size of the dots? how would you compare this munkin paper to what’s used in the nuuna books? thx!!

  25. I adore the charcoal grey/mint combo. Those are my go-to colours 95% of the time. However, I’d love something bold in maybe an olive and bright yellow (mixed with white). Even if I don’t win, I do think this will likely be one of my next notebook purchases. I love the details!

  26. I have one of the lined ones and love it, but a dotted one would be even better, and and charcoal grey/duck egg one would be the best!

  27. I like the Charcoal grey/Mint combo the best of their color options. I would like to see a dark forest green cover with a pale yellow interior.

  28. My favorite color combo is the Blue/Tan with dotted paper. Looks very professional, but still a nice drop of color amidst the typical “black” professional look.

  29. I like the Wine Red/Lavender of this current collection. A future combo I’d like to see would be Forest Green/Orange.

  30. Thanks for the review. I’ve had this notebook on my radar for some time; not sure why I’ve not acquired any. I find the midnight blue & tan to my liking. A dark forest green with a light cream color would, for me, be a favorite…….stay safe, stay sane.

  31. Ooh! I love the sky blue and pale pink (and the lay flag binding) but would love to see mustard pages, with maybe a cobalt or deep green cover.

  32. For me, it’s a toss-up between the Jet Black + Duck Egg or the Midnight Blue + Tan. Charcoal Grey + Mint also looks great.

  33. Oooo! A new notebook! Bright, Berry red with turquoise pages just makes me drool. I can’t wait to get a chance to try out all my pens and ink on such a luscious combo.

  34. Charcoal and mint is very cool. Sounds like a Dr. Seuss recipe. ..I’ve never seen these before and they look awesome.

  35. I’m always about the blue (you could verify that by looking at my ink collection) so blue and white would be really cool! But black is chic and I’d sure try this one too!

  36. I’d really like a mustard yellow/ pale blue combo! Of the current offerings the sky blue/pink is probably my favorite.

  37. I think the jet black/duck egg combination is the nicest, even though it’s simpler and less distinctive than some of them.

  38. First of all, huzzah for Rhode Island based businesses. Secondly, I like the lime/blue combo. In pictures it looks like my favorite category of color, which is obnoxious greens.
