Delighted with this passepied paper notebook.

This notebook is clearly designed by someone who loves to journal, for people who are into journaling. The quality is impeccable, as I hold the notebook in hand and flip to various pages, this notebook is a result of a lot of thought and care.
It is my first ever experience with passepied paper and I am happy to report that nothing has been over hyped. If you care for a very clear explanation of the notebook and how passepied paper handles various inks, please go to Blake's Broadcast on YouTube and you will be able to see for yourself.
As a customer of Paper Mind, I can say the YouTube reviews are accurate, the customer service is fast and professional, and I now have a new reliable vendor when it comes to finding high quality notebooks. Shipping was fast, and packaging top notch as the notebooks I received were not at all harmed during shipping.

Lovely Notebook!

One of the best notebooks I’ve ever had! Great, A5 size, and the binding is impeccable and lays nicely flat. It has plenty of pages without being bulky, and the inclusion of a blotter sheet is a fantastic touch- even if I don’t need to blot, I always like to use a sheet of paper as a ‘hand guard’ to protect my pages from the oils on my hands and my hands from my fresh ink, so the blotter is a very thoughtful touch.

Passepied paper is fantastic, so silky and soft on the eyes, with none of the ‘draggy’ feeling that some of the other premium papers have. It doesn’t have *all* the drama of Tomoe River (what does?), but it does a decent job showing some shading and sheen with virtually zero show through or bleeding- ideal for writing you want to actually go back and read.
All together, this is a great notebook, and quickly becoming a favorite!
