Better than any other!
First and foremost I am biased about my Bassies. I don’t even look at other notebooks like I used to. My first Bassy has a wolf on the back…My second Bassy has been used everyday since it arrived. I own every brand of traveler’s notebook typically named…Travelers Company, Chic Sparrow, Foxy fix and others found on Etsy. I love the confident durable stitching of a Bassy and the even color and softness of their leathers. I have used this A5 everyday since it arrived and am very happy. Because of my long use of your products I hope you will receive this input in the kind tone it is intended in, and receive it as one costumers view. I have used all of my Bassies (yes I do call them Bassies) with my Hobonichi and bound journals which are Typically thick. For the last year I have used an A5 Crossfield from Nanami Paper which I have cut down to Standard size, in order to fit my second Bassy. Hence my setting money aside to one day buy an A5. ( I am a retired midwife on disability due to a heart condition.) I would put washi tape in the center of the notebook and kept the larger notebooks attached with two strings on the reinforced center pages. Sometimes I have also just tucked the back cover into the secretarial pocket in the back. I do like this new format, but wanted to establish that nothing is different as far as what I am able to use. Also, the purchasing of an A5 was to increase the convenience and not have to make adjustments and reinforcements. So the new layout expanded my convenience. I do feel there are also two disadvantages from my type of use. With my second Bassy the front add on pocket had curved edges with the third they are straight up and sewn to the top. As I slid my my pens into the pocket, before the leather softened I really thought the seams were going to give at the edges. It did not, but I like the curved look better and the pocket was less taught at the top. With pens in the front pocket an transferring the washi tape over that thin spot between the two pockets stretched enough again to make me expect a tear. So presently I can not carry as much in this notebook as I am in my first and second Bassies pocket formats, which I believe are the same . I do not think I would purchase this pocket format in the future. Not looking for anything just thought you should know my input. As I said before I am still totally thrilled with this Bassy. It is gorgeous. The stitching and colors are perfect!Thank you. I am okay with this being published but it’s meant for Heather and Roy. I am happy to write a less detailed review if need be.
I’m in love
This was one of the best shopping experiences I’ve ever had. Ordering was a breeze, my travelers notebook is absolutely gorgeous, the workmanship perfect, and the leather is beautiful, and it shipped very quickly. I will absolutely be back for more!!!
