Because I loved the previous Lemome notebook so much, I wanted to see if this one stood up to the high quality of paper and construction. The cover is a faux leather with a debossed tree on the front. It also has a pen look, which doesn’t come with many of the brands I’m reviewing here today. This one is dotted and it came with a great pen (I was expecting a cheapo pen, but this is very nice and I actually love it!).
The paper quality is pretty good, but not great. Note that this version of Lemome notebook comes with 100gsm paper, rather than the 120gsm that is in the other models I tried above. I was disappointed that there was some minor ghosting of the darker ink colors and wettest inks but it still stood up fairly well to the pen test. It’s still a good notebook choice and I’d probably use it and adapt my pen usage to accommodate the ghosting. The pages are dotted and numbers and have a slew of fun bonus pages at the front for annual planning, goal setting, and future logging.
