Thanks to Rolf Gerber at Biella CH, I received a beautiful A5 black unlined journal in my rural postbox.
If first impressions are important, and they are to me, the packaging is very impressive.
The journal came sealed in cellophane, and contains a beautiful matching black pencil with the Biella seal and an envelop of index clips.
The diagonal closure across the front right corner holds the pencil in place firmly and may also hold a lighter weight fountain pen.
In both the front and back covers are paper slip holders--undoubtedly great for bank depository and other papers that can and do accumulate during our day.
The smooth paper feels good in the hand.
The test will be how well it takes various fountain pen inks in numerous fountain pens?
