Over the past few months Baron Fig has become my notebook brand of choice. I really like the simplicity of their designs and the quality of the paper suits the majority of my needs. So when I saw photos of the latest Baron Fig Vanguard Infinity Edition I immediately placed an order.
Prior to using the Infinity edition I had experience with the pocket Vanguard notebooks which meant I had a good idea of what to expect. The Infinity edition comes in the medium, or as Baron Fig refer to it, the Flagship size. This works out as slightly smaller than a traditional A5 notebook. It comes with 72 pages making it a thin workbook or composition book format. I have found this thinner notebook style makes it easier to write in due to the lower profile it has when open, and having fewer pages means its ideal for projects or as I recently found out, a travel notebook as it’s not very bulky.
The Infinity edition comes with the much loved dot grid, off white paper that can be found in all other Baron Fig notebooks. Dot grid paper is fast becoming the preferred grid to please the masses, but personally it’s not my first choice. However I will concede that this grid style does make each notebook extremely versatile.
As you can tell I think there is a lot going for this edition, but most of what I have mentioned above can be found on any of the Flagship Vanguard notebooks. The real selling point of this edition is the beautiful design; it’s simply stunning. The deep purple cover has a slight textured feel to it. The complimenting pink accents are beautiful, the spine stitching, the Infinity shapes on the front cover and then the contrasting use of pink on the inside cover all make the notebook pop. This is the sort of notebook I could hoard, its practically perfect for me.
I really like what Baron Fig are doing these days. They may not be pleasing everyone but they are certainly getting people talking. Their range of products is growing rapidly, it feels like there is a new product every week. I am really excited about Baron Fig and what the future holds.
