🌿 New FSC Certified Journals

🌿 Fans of hardcover Leuchtturm1917 and Moleskine journals may want to take a peek at Forvencer.

These notebooks are 5 3/8" wide, 8 1/4" tall, and contain 240 pages with 7mm rule. 

The 100gsm paper takes everything but a Sharpie without bleedthrough. I was even able to use fountain pens, dye-based brush pens, and watercolor without any ghosting. 

The paper is a warm ivory and has quite a bit of tooth. I would describe this paper as "dry" compared to Moleskine. 

Like Leuchtturm1917 and Moleskine, Forvencer opens flat and offers a pocket in the back, a bookmark, and an elastic closure. Corners are rounded. Best of all, these notebooks are FSC Certified with sustainably sourced paper.

Cons for me: there are no page numbers, and the notebook doesn't have a table of contents. Each page reads "date" in the top left or right corner.
