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:
