Clairfontaine notebooks are my favorite
I love all of Clairfontaine's products and these notebooks are my favorite. The are a wide A5 size. I don't like regular a A5 and A5 slims only seem wide enough for me to write lists on. Not to write journal entries or meeting notes on. The french ruled papers help me to practice good penmanship when I am working on everyday tasks, which not only helps me read it later but helps keep my handwriting neat for letters and cards. The paper does not bleed through no matter what ink I am using, so both sides of the paper are usable. The staple binding is strong and the notebooks lie flat enough for writing when they are open and there is no ring binding in the middle so you can write or draw over the center of the pages. They are a great price for the amount of paper you get.
