I used to be a moleskine user but I just found the yellow tint to be rather bothersome to me. That is just my opinion though. Otherwise both sketchbooks are lovely. But to the actual review...
I love the size of the sketchbook. Moleskine is 5x8.25 whereas Leuchtturm1917 is 5.75x8.25. I like the extra width because I tend to doodle and draw big. Plus my hand tends to lie on the edge of the book, but with the Leuchtturm1917 it gives me just a tiny bit more room to rest my hand on. It may not seem like a big difference, but it was a preference that I am very into.
Another thing I love about this sketchbook is the paper. It is thick, holds ink well, pure white, and doesn't feather. In my experience with the pens and markers that I use it does not feather; however, I have seen people have different experiences on it. For me it is perfect. I never see ink bleed through unless it is an alcohol based marker (that is pretty typical tho), but it does not bleed to the point it will go onto the next page which is very nice. I don't have to panic when I forget to put a scrap piece of paper between the pages to prevent the bleeding. And it is pure white! Just how I like it. My colors will not alter or look different because it doesn't have the yellow tint. Although some people like to use white pens so obviously the white paper will not show it easily, but for me I only use white pens on areas I have colored so that isn't an issue.
The binding is AWESOME. I have no idea if the books are consistent because I only have bought one, but the current sketchbook I have lies flat on the table and the pages barely lift up. The only ones that lift a little is the previous page that I have already drawn on, but it is so little you can barely tell the difference.
I think the ONLY down side about this sketchbook is it's accessibility. Sometimes I would like to go to the store and just buy it on the spot. Sadly, the area I live in doesn't sell Leuchtturm1917 brand anywhere. The only thing that is similar like it is the Moleskine but I do not want to buy that. Thankfully amazon prime is a plus, but for those of you who do not have it I recommend purchasing it a few days before you finish your sketchbook so you have something to draw in before it arrives.
The price is not an issue for me at all. I know Moleskine (at least the 5x8.75 sketchbook) is cheaper than the Leuchtturm1917, but I find Moleskine's sketchbook qualities to be inconsistent and the fact I do not like the yellow tint. So I am more than happy to pay a few more dollars for something I love and will use all the time. Plus I tend to finish one sketchbook roughly around 2-4months so spending $24 every few months is not going to kill me.
I am more than half way with completing this sketchbook and with no doubt will buy another one as soon as I complete it. I hope this review gives you an idea about the sketchbook. If you do buy it I hope you love it as much as I do.
The paper is bright white instead of cream. And I feel like it bleeds a little bit more than moleskine does. But that could just be my not being used to it yet.
