Monologue Platinum A6 Silver

31 01 2014

Go on, get it out of your system: bling. The Monologue Platinum is about as blingtastic as a notebook can get without incorporating precious gems, rhinestones, glitter, or spinners (not gonna lie, I’d buy a notebook with a little spinner rim on the cover—SOMEONE MAKE IT HAPPEN).

Also comes in black, bronze, and gold, none of which are colors I think of when I think of the word 'platinum.'

Metallic silver cover. Silver bookmark. Silver (or gray really) elastic closure, fabulous silver-edged pages. It’s got bling without shouting you down.

Product idea: every time you open the notebook, it rains dollar bills and plays the 100 all-time greatest platinum hits

The front cover has a smooth, pressed down section to keep the elastic from biting so badly through the cover like it does on the regular Monologue Ruled Notebook. Take note, Rhodia, it might be worth a try (or a prototype? wink wink my mailbox is open).

These are supposed to be white pages. I just don't get enough sunshine in my world

In terms of extras, you’ve got a whole page for your contact information, a section for addresses, and even some pages for websites and blogs. Who even knows people with that many blogs? There’s also a back pocket, which is only really important when a notebook doesn’t have one and you need it.

Showthrough and bleedthrough is pretty bad with fountain pens. Stick to gel pens, micro tip preferably

These lines are tight. Is miniature college ruled even a thing? How do you even fit 25 lines on an A6 page?? This is crazy. The paper (80gsm) is way too absorbent for fountain pens, but at lines this tiny you know you gotta go with microtip gel pens. Once again, I highly recommend the Pilot Juice 0.38mm—my dark red Juice is doing wonderfully on this paper. But anything 0.5mm and under would look great. And with all these lines per page, you can fit more writing in.

Shiny pages on every notebook. That is what I want now

You want more lines in your pocket notebook? You want something that stands out a little? You want another notebook dedicated to your micro-tip gel pens? Here it is.
