The Rhodia ePure notebook.

I am a sucker for notebooks with leather covers. Add the Rhodia brand name and I am a sucker lining up at the counter.

The Rhodia ePure comes in orange and black. The leather strip that binds it closed is not glued inside, so do not yank. The paper is a cream-tinged white. It seems better suited for fine nibs, as ink tends to spread. Regular Rhodia paper absorbs less, and thus shows truer lines – but hey, it doesn’t come with a leather cover.
