Every since Jetpens introduced cheaper international shipping options, I’ve been making wishlists left and right. I received my second purchase in the mail last week and was most excited about this Maruman Mnemosyne notebook I decided to try out. Something I love equally if not more than pens are notebooks, especially ones with superb paper quality.
The one I purchased is the Maruman Mnemosyne Imagination Notebook (Graph) in A4 size. I wanted a notebook to write revision notes and diagrams on and the Maruman is all I every wished for. I dislike using blank paper for diagrams because I’m a horrible slanter when it comes to writing, so graph paper is my best friend. The grid sizes on this notebook is just perfect!
Above is a revision sheet I made for my math class that just wrapped up. The paper is so smooth that your pen just glides on it like ice. That is probably because it contains 80 gsm paper. Apart from the great paper quality, I really appreciate how the pages are sectioned off as there is space at the top for a title and date.
The only downside to this notebook would be that it’s not ruled double-sided. Whether this is a problem or not really depends on what you are using it for. As a student, I would want to make as many notes as I could in a single notebook and especially for this one because the paper is such good quality that I just don’t want to waste it.
It’s safe to say that I am super impressed with these notebooks and will be purchasing more when I finish this one. (If I had it my way, I would probably buy 3 more immediately but the piggy bank doesn’t allow it)
