Terrific FB notebook

This Junior Legal sized notebook is a perfect fit for my Tanner Goods travel wallet. No feathering, bleed through or ghosting with Parker Quink blue-black or Montegrappa brown inks from medium nibs.

Great little book

Love this little book. Snap enough to fit in my day planner, lots of pages, can fold it open without pages falling out.

I had been searching everywhere for a notebook that was at least partially recycled material but also lined and I found the perfect notebook with this one. The only thing I would love more is if it was made as close to 100% recycled materials yet still be lined paper!

Northbooks for school

Just great - I love the looks, the feel, the paper quality and especially the attention to detail. Lots of comments and compliments on them because of their unique and distinctive look. Would buy again, not only for school but for personal use.

A perfect new find

Every time I walk into a store with paper products I inevitably spend most of my time looking at notebooks for something utilitarian and attractive, with high quality paper and affordable enough to buy multiples for work and personal use. I've ended up using different brands for different purposes over the years.My Northbook can replace them all. It looks great and doesn't compromise quality (or eco-friendliness) for the price. Also: the line height is perfect for my handwriting, its size and light weight doesn't add to the bulk I already have to carry in my work bag or purse, and the paper takes the inky pens I write with really well without bleed or too much show-through. A perfect new find.

Minimalist Design. Maximum Quality.
