Thanks to Pentamento for the first review of our new Equology eco-friendly notebooks and planners… Reading it reminded me that I’ve been meaning to post my own photographs and impressions, so here goes.
I, too, love the heavy duty rubber-like cover, to which pictures don’t really do justice”it’s soft and bumpy and dry, sort of like a cat’s tongue:
The big question with recycled notebooks and planners is the quality of the paper, however, and I know the Quo Vadis team worked hard to get this up to par. It’s smooth and white”not as bright as new, bleached paper would be, but loads better than the dull gray you’re usually consigned to when you use recycled paper. (Alas, this sort of thing is hard to capture on a home camera, so my pictures don’t really do it justice!)
At 90 grams, the paper is also thick enough to handle a wide range of writing instruments. Here are some front-and-back comparisons.
As you can see, the bleedthrough is mostly minimal, and never enough to prevent you from writing on both sides of the page.
We’ll be doing more review giveaways of the Equology in August, but if you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know in the comments!
