Freestyle Really Big Notebook, Serious Creativity Collection, 800 Pages, Pink Drink Journal – June 14, 2014
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I really wanted to like this notebook. It was everything I've always wanted in one: large capacity, green in color (or other color options), paginated (numbered pages), table of contents, and did I mention large capacity (800 PAGES!!). What more could you ask for, right? So when I found out about this notebook, of course I proceeded to look up information on it in the way of reviews. Not many existed at the time, like way less than even now. Like, really only two. Anyway, when it came, I liked it. Unfortunately that didn't last long. The paper quality of this notebook is pretty bad. I've had $4 notebooks have better quality. Even composition notebooks have better quality. Everything shows through to the other side, EVERYTHING.. Even pencil! Yes even pencil. Like, you can definitely see everything on the other side. This sucks, completely. I expected things like markers or whatever, but pencil?! Needless to say I was very very and highly disappointed. I feel like it was a total waste of money. I only used up to page 9 in this book, not even wanting to try to use the backs of pages written on. I don't want to know what that looks like. I still like the IDEA of this book. I just wish it were executed in a way that makes it usable. This thing just sits and collects dust now. And it makes me extremely sad.
This notebook is great, for the right person and the right purpose. It is huge--800 pages, like a large textbook. It is really heavy. People comment on it everywhere I go because it's so unusual. I like it because I feel as though I have enough pages to do/write/draw whatever I want. I have about 70 pages filled up so far and I love the worn look it has and how I've used so much space yet have so many pages to go. The paper is good quality with little bleed-though. All of the pages are numbered, 1-800.
Best of all, in the front of this journal is an index. I really love this feature. I can look in the beginning and write exactly where I have certain lists and various topics or sections for notes.
If you don't mind the weight (and I don't) in exchange for the freedom of space and creativity, this is a terrific journal. It's also an outstanding value for the price. If you like this unusual journal, you will like others from the maker, The Productive Luddite.
My main use is to keep track of my art supplies and art books. I know what I have and where to find it in my studio. (do you notice I may have an issue of finding things in my studio?) I also note tips on product use, keep color and blending charts of the inks/pens/paints I have plus a art supply wish list. Note it is regular paper, so does not do well with water. If this was mixed media paper at least, I would be in heaven. Otherwise, I just add in charts that are on heavier-weight paper. I keep track of workshops I have signed up for, especially those online workshops that offer lifetime access. I keep my workshop notes in it too. I keep inspirational color palettes from magazines, etc. pasted in there. I keep track of my art books. I keep notes on websites and/or artists that I admire to refer to for inspiration. I also keep lists of things like the medications I am taking currently. I even have notes in it for my family, so I have everything of importance that would need if I become incapacitated for some reason. They are aware I keep this book and it will be easy for them to spot on my desk in a hurry instead of information stored in some desk file.
I find it very useful. It keeps my stress level down having information in one place. I have gone through terminal computer crashes in the past and find this book to be more trustworthy with my information.
And if you are the kind of person who cannot fathom needing 800 pages, or more than one 800 page notebook? Well, why are you reading this review in the first place? :-)
