going postal

I’ve always been a sucker for a fancy notebook. It all started with the Moleskine. I love the heavy leather binder, thick-stock paper and smart back pocket. In the last two years or so I’ve graduated to Rhodia writing pads, the French-made orange notebooks (they have black too but I always go for bright) go with me everywhere and the graph paper somehow makes my messy journalist writing look organized. This weekend however, I found these Japanese-made writing pads that incorporate the best of Moleskine and Rhodia.

Postalco notebooks have sturdy, pressed-cotton fabric covers and heavy stock paper that is even waterproof! (OK, the “waterproof” part is just an assumption based from my recent use of this book in the rain and the fact that the writing is still legible.) They’re a bit more expensive than their French counterpart so for now, while I’m waiting for the big bucks to roll in, this will be my weekend note pad. —MR
