Review: Clairefontaine Twinbook

Clairefontaine Twinbook

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?

Clairefontaine Twinbook

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.

Biff, you've done it again! I have to, have to, get one of these. I'm just awaiting the imminent arrival of my first Lamy Safari pen–something else you've made me covet for two years! I'm broke, but eternally grateful!
