Baron Fig contacted me and asked if I would like to use and review the Train of Thought limited edition Vanguard notebook. All thoughts in this review are entirely my own.
The Train of Thought limited edition Vanguard notebook was a collaboration with a designer, Zipeng Zhu, who featured in Baron Figs bag Kickstarter campaign. I have been using these Flagship sized notebooks for some time now and wanted to share my thoughts with you in todays review.
The Train of Thought notebook has some very striking cover designs. Each notebook has a section of a train on the front and back cover and has a different colour - purple, green and red.
The artwork continues to the inside cover with each notebook expanding on the theme of seeing where your thoughts take you. The purple notebook has a sleepy night time feel with animals and clouds floating through space. The green notebook is more of a traditional sci-fi take on space with planets and aliens and finally the red notebook is playful with doughnuts, people and flowers floating through space.
The artwork is playful and fun. Its randomness definitely works with the theme of seeing where your ideas take you. As this artwork consumes the covers both inside and out there isn’t the usual information box on the inside cover which does mean theres no room for personal info, but really who cares.
The paper is the normal Baron Fig stock with dot grid ruling inside. The performance is as you expect from Baron Fig products. They take pencils well because the paper has some tooth, fountain pens and inks ar suitable as there is little / no bleed through or shadowing. Essentially you can use most writing tools and you’re fine.
The Vanguard notebooks are solid, with 72 pages per notebook and three notebooks in a pack. I really enjoy their size and the slim form factor because they are comfortable to use and write in for long periods of time. They’re kind of the perfect size with he perfect amount of pages.
You can still get your hands on the Train of Thought limited edition Vanguard notebook, so head over and snap some of these notebooks up.
Thank you Baron Fig for sending me these notebooks to review.
