In this video, I do a side-by-side comparison of the large US version Quo Vadis Habana and US version Rhodia Webnotebook. These journals are different than the versions you find outside of the US. The US versions have fantastic performing, smooth 90g Clairefontaine paper. The journals themselves are relatively similar in size, with the Habana being just a bit larger.

The Rhodia Webnotebook (also known as the Webbie) has ivory paper, with a very stiff leatherette cover. The Habana has white paper, with a semi-flexible leatherette cover. Because the two are so identical, I wanted to do a comparison between both notebooks, pointing out all the differences in detail.

All in all, both are great journals. Some key differences are in the paper color, the slightly different sizes, the ability to lay flat on a desk (the Habana is better at that), and the color selection of the covers. The Webbie is available in orange and black, and the Habana is available in black, blue, red, taupe, and several different Robert le héros designs. Check out the video and decide for yourself which of the two you prefer!

A selection of Quo Vadis Habanas and Rhodia Webnotebooks are available at The Goulet Pen Company.
