In January I broke out my Cool Notes Notebook in red from teNeues. The hardcover is red, but what is even more special is the inside cover (pictured above) which is Bright Red and Yellow Zebra Print. It is awesome and totally brightens up your day. The notebook itself is a bright red and is a great alternative to a moleskine notebook. In this particular notebook the left hand page is blank and the right hand page is lined which make it perfect for this month’s monthly notebook. Other features include the ribbon bookmark, elastic closure and pocket at the back of the notebook. Again reminding me of a moleskine notebook.
There is a wide range of designs/patterns and colours available (both for the hard cover and the inside cover). See a sample of the range on their website.
Writing in the notebook feels great, the paper is smooth – I use my stabilo pen collection which glide over the page (and leaves minimal bleed through (pictured above). The pages of course are versatile and cope with writing, drawing, doodling etc – everything I pretty much need from a Monthly Notebook. For those of you who don’t already know – my Monthly Notebooks are notebooks that I carry daily to jot down notes and ideas. Each month I try to fill a different notebook with such goodies. You can find the full list (dating back to 2009) here.
