Baron Fig sent me their latest limited edition Confidant notebook to review on the blog. All the thoughts shared in this post are my own.
The Confidant is a gorgeous purple colour with the interior page layout debossed front and centre. The bookmark comes in the same purple colour as the notebook and the logo/icon is printed on the inside cover.
The page format is the really unique feature of this limited edition and not something I think I have seen on any other notebook. The top half of each page is blank with the bottom half ruled. This really reminds me of my primary school notebooks where we would draw a picture of what we did at the weekend and below write some commentary around it.
This is the intention with this page layout and gives this limited edition its name. There is space to doodle your designs, outline plans, draw mind maps and so on and then below a little bit of space to write out some form of description. The layout makes this notebook unique and perhaps limiting to some people, but I love the idea. There are so many interesting ways that you could use this notebook. I am pleased that Baron Fig chose to use the Confidant for this page layout choice. The hard bound covers and the additional pages means you could really use this for long term projects or journaling.
This limited edition is an example of how Baron Fig are thinking differently with their limited editions and not solely looking at a cover design, they’re considering the whole notebook. This is a great release and a notebook I will really enjoy playing around with.
If you’re interested to hear how the design came into being listen to the Eureka podcast, episode 14, where they guys discuss how they came to this. Notebook chat starts about 18 mins in.
Thank you again to the guys at Baron Fig for sending me this notebook to review.
