Maruman Mnemosyne Notebook Overview



We're pretty picky when it comes to paper around here at GouletPens.com, so when we pick up a new line of notebooks it has to be pretty exciting for us to go for it. Maruman Mnemosyne fits that bill for us. Maruman is a Japanese paper company that has several lines of notebooks, one of which is this Mnemosyne, named after the Greek goddess of memory.

What's usually the big hangup with notebooks is the paper quality, because if you are primarily a fountain pen user like we are here, you need something fairly ink-resistant so you don't end up with fat lines of fuzzy-looking writing. This Mnemosyne paper definitely holds up, almost comparable to the ever-popular Rhodia brand.

We shot this rather comprehensive video giving an overview of the Mnemosyne products we're carrying at GouletPens.com, with some timestamps here to make it easier for your reference:

  1. I'm so excited that you're carrying Mnemosyne now! I had been wanting to get the Word Cards for months, after seeing someone do Ink Drop sampling with them I think? but kept delaying until I could get free shipping... and now I can just get them from you :D

    As soon as I got the In stock alert today, I ordered one of the Word Card sets with a bunch of new ink samples... but I just realized I have over 120 inks (vast majority are sample phials...), so I probably should have ordered 2! Ah, well, I forgot to actually get bottles of some of my favorite inks, so I suppose I have a reason to make another order in a couple weeks... especially if I end up liking some of the samples I ordered today as much as I expect to do.

  2. Yay! This is excellent news! I have a few of the notebooks and I've been using the Word Cards to keep track of my ink samples.

  3. What a great selection of notebooks and notepads! Great review. I'm going to have to add the Word Cards to my next order, along with the Vanishing Point stub nib (when can I request an email notification for this?). The options here are more than I ever expected. This will take some study to see which items I will want to add to my paper arsenal. Thanks Brian.

  4. I'm very excited to buy some word cards for keeping track of my inks. Very convenient that I can buy them in the same place as my samples.
