I’ve been wanting to try the Rhodia brand of notebooks because I heard they were good for fountain pens.
I bought a Rhodia Goal Book from Scribe, here in Manila. It came in so many beautiful colors and it was really hard to decide but I finally settled on the Iris. I love touching its soft leatherette cover!
The Goal Book comes in A5 size with 240 pages: 224 numbered dot grid pages, a table of contents, and undated annual and monthly calendars. It also has an expanding inner pocket at the back.
The Goal Book is fitted with premium 90 g. ivory, vellum paper. The paper is so smooth to write on. I used my Pilot Kakuno Clear Fountain Pen with a F nib and Versamagic inkpad in Midnight Black. Love how there is no bleed through and the show through is very minimal.
I decided to use my Rhodia Goal Book as a Common Place Notebook. It’s basically a journal where you can jot down notes that you think you can use at a later time. I read a book by Regina Brett recently and I decided to copy the passages I liked into the Goal Book.
If I could change anything about the Rhodia Goal Book, instead of being orange, I wish that the ribbon markers and elastic closure matched the notebook color. I love this journal so much. Stationery lovers, grab yours now!
