Is there one? For the hype and style, it’s hard to find a true alternative. That’s what the blog Black Cover is dedicated to: finding the perfect alternative. Why look to ‘fix’ the seeming ultimate notebook? For me, it’s largely a question of financial responsibility. With everything going as high as they are, $10-$15 for a notebook, pocket-sized at that, is a bit much. Factor in the familial responsibility, and I can’t justify plunking anything down for one for myself. My wife? Most certainly. But me, no. That’s why I also use the Lee Valley LogBook and a Miquelrius notebook. Both are quite affordable, and actually a steal in comparison. But neither are the exact replacement. What may be? Perhaps this.
Yes, a contest for a set of notebooks. Shilling for some goods, yes. But it is a true concern for this luddite-ish IT fellow. Without my notebooks, I’d likely loose my head.
