The new staple bound Clairefontaine Twinbooks allow you to use one book for two subjects - lighten the load in the old school book bag, eh?
The Twinbooks contain 96 pages of 90g bright white Clairefontaine paper (perfect for use with a fountain pen) in graph form. The cover is a glossy cardboard.
This book is approx. 6 3/4" x 8 5/8"(a larger book at 8.25"x11" is also available) and comes in assorted colors.
The 1st 48 pages are notched/tabbed in a way that allows you to easily work in the first or second half of the book. I love that the corners of the paper and the cover are rounded - much easier on the palm of the hand as you reach the bottom of the page.
A staple bound book means there will be a few spots throughout the book where it opens flatter than others.
The spine of the book is slightly rounded, and I wonder if it would open a little flatter if they would square off the spine... I'm such a stickler for my journals & notebooks opening flat.
An additional review of the Twinbook is available at The Pen Addict.
Buy Twinbooks at Writer's Bloc. $3.30 for the Medium, $6.25 for the Large.
