It is easy to feel the quality and craftsmanship that went into its creation by holding an odyssey notebook. I write a lot of notes throughout my day, both for work and as a supplement to my shoddy memory; these notebooks are always within arm's reach. Paper quality is fantastic. I have observed no feathering when using a fountain pen and no smudging when using a pencil. I am sure you could spend more on a notebook, but you would be hard-pressed to find a better one.
This journal is beautiful. It arrived even faster than I expected, which was a bonus. The paper is thick and smooth and makes writing with fountain pens very satisfying. I decorate my journal with stickers, washi, and glued on pictures and there hasn't been any bubbling at all. I'm very satisfied with this purchase!
Well crafted, love the design and the Tomoe River paper. Will definitely buy more of these notebooks!
What a gorgeous notebook! It has a nice weight to it and the paper is thick and lovely. I was going to use this as a bullet journal but now may use it as an art journal instead.
Love: thick paper, dot grid, multiple bookmarks, elastic closure, just generally beautiful.
Bummed about: no page numbers. This isn't a big deal and was something I knew about. I will just add them myself of I decide I need to be able to index things.
I had some shipping issues (my original parcel arrived ripped with nothing in it; it seems that it was tampered with prior to it getting scanned in at the post office) and odyssey was wonderful about shipping a new one out to me in a timely manner. Overall I am very happy! 10/10
Love these notebooks. As thick as A&o but I can still use my fountain pens which was important!
