Leuchtturm1917 Notebooks

I found a Leuchtturm 1917 185 page pocket notebook on sale for $AUS10 at a local stationers and couldn't resist buying it.

It's a similar look to a moleskine but it has a few differences.

Like a Moleskine it has a sewn binding, an elastic closure band, a page marker ribbon, and the paper is very light weight but doesn't "bleed" the ink.

Different to Moleskines... the cover is green cloth, like an expensive bound book; the first page has a place to write my name and address; there are 3 contents pages with page number and topic tables, so I can create my own table of contents; and every general page has "Date" at the top and a page number at the bottom.

According to the leaflet inside the book, the company was founded in 1917 in Germany and restablished in Hamburg in 1948.

I haven't paid attention to their notebooks before, but if this one is anything to go by they're extremely good quality.

Has anyone else here used their notebooks before?

They speak well of these notebooks over on the Fountain Pen Network

I saw them for the first time yesterday!

Those who have seen my posts know I change planners about 6 times a year - I was at my local store yesterday and ran across those. I settled on a PaperBlanks because the size suits my needs better and it was prettier than Moleskine but I may have to go back and pick up a Leuchttrum.

tell us how your fountain pen holds up to it

I naturally press too hard (how sad I'm in my mid-30s and I'm retraining my pen grip?) so my fountain pen ink bleeds through the back of the paper.
Let us know if you get one AND how well the paper holds up.


Laurie at plannerisms.com blogs that she used a Leuchtturm 1917 to plot out her Plannerisms planners,which are out new this year. The dots on the pages were easier on the eyes than graph ruled.
