I am a HUGE fan of Kleid notebooks, so the bar was extremely high for me on this purchase, a collaborative design between Kleid and Life. It succeeds in ways that the simple A5 notebook from Kleid did not- it's more substantial and at 100 pages will keep me drawing for quite some time. The design is very thoughtful. They have bound the book so that it is almost like 5 Kleid notebooks bound into a single volume. The binding allows each "partition" to open fully and lay flat (a feature that I really treasure about the Kleid books is their total flatness). I love this book and will enjoy my purchase but a note to Inky Paw- please stock the simple original Kleid A5 notebooks. There is no Canadian store online that I know of that stocks them and I would definitely buy them if you made them available!!!
Thanks for the suggestion! We will add the regular Kleid notebooks to our long list of products to track down :)
