Yes, they're finally here, and they're spectacular.
Since releasing the original InkJournal Classic pocket notebook for pen & ink collectors back in 2012, our intention has been to further improve the design based on the feedback from our awesome customers and fountain pen enthusiasts. The next evolution of the InkJournal classic answers the call with higher paper quality, an improved form design and a larger format.
Meet the InkJournal Black. The 8.5" x 5.5" paperback style notebook is filled with 80 pages of 80# fountain pen-loving paper. Catalog 38 different pen & ink entries like never before on a 2-page spread with added space and more criteria to describe the writing matchup.
To use the original InkJournal as a point of comparison, we see in the photos below that the size is much larger and the paper quality is far-improved, especially when using broader or flexible nibs.
Rather than continue to offer the original InkJournal Classic, which was our best-selling notebook for the past two years, we decided to improve the product to better service the fountain pen community. That being said, we'd love for you to pick up a copy and let us know how you like it. Please feel free to contact us, tag us on instagram, mention us on twitter or post on our Facebook page.
