I recently started a new visual journal which I use as a daily journal which now includes visual-note taking. I was excited to get into my first ever Moleskin – and I’m soooo disappointed. It is definitely not behaving as I expected it to. The paper is much thinner than I thought and as I prefer using a black gel pen am only able to use one side of each page. At this rate, I’ll be starting another new journal shortly – it will not be a moleskin (unless I can find one with heavier paper, I’ll check out your suggestions above, Doug). In its defense, I must say the gel pen flows beautifully on the pages in my moleskin but I would prefer to be able to write and draw on both sides…
