A couple of weeks ago, I won a Haiku Contest (go to European Paper's Facebook page or go to their blog to read all the wonderful Haikus that were submitted). The prize package I won included a large Moleskine Squared Journal, a Moleskine Wine Passions Journal, and a two pack of Moleskine Volant Plain Notebooks.
Today I'm reviewing the Volant Notebook. I received the red/burgundy set.
Look and Feel:
The coated cardboard covers are very plain—no wording except for the Moleskine name embossed on the back. You can see a faint pebbly texture but the feel is smooth, and a bit waxy. I ran a fingernail along a corner. If the light hits just right, it shows, but it isn’t very noticeable. I think these covers would hold up well to the jostling and dings that it would get in a purse.
The cream-colored paper is smooth but not slick. As with most pocket-type notebooks, it's thin and may get folds (I'd be careful erasing) but won't tear easily.
Look for a review on the Wine Passions Moleskine in the next week or so.
