The latest notebook I have decided to hoard is the Midori MD.
MD notebooks are available online. I see there’s a place called The Journal Shop and of course, Rakuten. If I can’t get out of the country and must swallow the heavy shipping cost, I will just close my eyes and think of how lovely the wrapping paper is.
This is the notebook equivalent of wearing cream linen slacks while walking down a busy Manila street.
The paper is honeyed cream, easy on the eyes, somewhat translucent, crazy smooth, and highly resistant to bleedthrough. Ink takes a little longer to dry, and will definitely smear for the impatient. (Note fishnet smear on the left page.) (Note I am very, very impatient.)
Brush pen and ink. The paper color here is more accurate.
And more samples.
In between the back cover and the last page, a surprise – stickers.
I would like stickers that don’t make me feel too pressured to write “Ideas.” I suggest “Accidents,” “Nothing Much,” “Nooneenooneenoo,” and “Whatever.”
