after the chaos in my head, let’s get focused to the next stop on our paper journey.
This time we will checkout the Nuuna notebook in its Glowing Pixels edition. The cover is a smooth leather in white with light blue dots. On their website Nuuna quote: „…and remind us of nights in New York or, even more beautiful, of the Frankfurt Skyline.“ Well, it looks pretty cool but I can’t see a skyline in there. 😅 It is a softcover and the notebook is a little bit bigger than a standard A5 notebook. What I really like about the cover is that you can feel every single dot.
The price was 17,99 Euros in a local artist shop and it was on sale there. The regular price is 25,25 Euros when you order it online through the Nuuna website. I think that the price is ok, it isn’t the cheapest one though.
The notebook weights 0,62kg which makes it the heaviest notebook in our journey so far. I am using it as my bullet journal at the moment and to be honest, I don’t take it with me all the time because of the weight.
The paper is bright white with light gray dots on it. Normally the dot grid is 5.0 mm, in the Nuuna the dots are 3.5 mm. I never thought that I could say that but seize can matter. 😉 The squares are really tiny. My hand writing looks so huge between the small dots. The notebook has 256 pages and they are numbered but there isn’t any index. The corners are rounded as well and the paper thickness is 120gms. The pages are soft and I haven’t got any problems with pens, fountain pens, pencils, or highlighters on it. However, so far I haven’t tested so alcohol based markers and watercolour.
What I really like about this notebook is that it is a lay-flat. So you don’t have any problems that it couldn’t lay good on a flat surface like your desk. Another huge plus, for me, is the design. It is really something special. If you have a look at the Nuuna website you will find lots of different and unusal designs.
Unfortunately there isn’t any bookmark in or any elastic band on it. In the first week it was a little bit smelly; It smelled like clue, but it was really slight smell.
Wisdom of the day: If you are looking for a notebook with an outstanding cover, give the Nuuna a chance.
