Prat Paris makes wonderful, wonderful portfolios. They don’t know coffee dregs about making a website, but that’s all right, we will patiently download the PDFs not knowing they were there to be downloaded.
Fully Booked stocks Prat portfolios, and just recently added scrapbooks, pocket journals, and refillable journals. I bought the largest refillable journal (11″ x 8″) in purple. The cover is bonded leather.
The refill inside has a thin plastic cover, and snaps in place. The paper is unusual: crisp and pebble-textured, like a modern nod to parchment.
I wanted to stock up on refills, but couldn’t find any at Fully Booked. Now I’m thinking of ordering them online, because the paper allows fountain pens, even the wettest noodles, to be on their best behavior.
Sometimes, texture is not a good thing. Vintage nibs with only a token amount of iridium left can snag. Broad nibs can lay down uneven lines, especially if the ink is of the more viscous variety.
That’s not the case at all with this paper. Even at maximum flex, my pen did not incite it to feather.
Yes, I had way too much fun with sunlight through netting.
At Php1,800+, this notebook has a limited audience. I do recommend this indulgence to people with a little more money (and not too much pragmatism) to spare this season.
