    Default Oberon Large Journal Cover + Rhodia Webnotebook

    I recently purchased my first set of fountain pens and so of course I also needed a fountain pen friendly notebook. I ended up with a Rhodia Webnotebook based on reviews I've seen. I also decided to get a cover for it and after looking through all the various options I decided to go back to a brand I've used before and can vouch for the quality. So I got an Oberon Design cover.

    I originally ordered one of the Moleskine journal covers thinking it was the same size, but it turns out the spine of that cover is thinner/smaller which means any journal or filler that is thicker or wider than a Moleskine journal will not fit. I didn't find out until after the order had shipped. However, it ended up working out because Oberon allowed me to place another order for the large journal cover and I was able to get it in a color I thought was discontinued. It turns out they will be offering the chocolate color once again and they just happened to receive a shipment of the new color so I was able to place a custom color at no additional cost because of the mixup with Moleskin cover.

    I've had an Oberon cover before and the fit and finish is impeccable. The leatherwork is of the highest quality and is best appreciated in person. It fits my Rhodia Webnotebook perfectly. I can open the notebook completely flat with no issues.

    Here are some pictures for those interested in this cover/notebook combination. Enjoy.

    Yes. The standard "large" journal cover fits perfectly.

    I have one of their covers that looks just like this, but in black. The Clairefontaine paperbound 14.8 x 21 cm notebooks fit fairly well inside. The Clairefontaine spine is just a bit thinner than the Oberon cover, but it's still not a bad fit.

    I have an Oberon cover for my Divine Office. It is just lovely, and so well made--sturdy as a saddle!--and there is a huge variety of designs to choose from.

    With a large leather fold out pen loop this would be almost perfect. I admit drooling when I saw your lovely cover. Thank you for posting the photos.

    You can have them add a pen loop for $5. I didn't add one since I'm using fountain pens that wouldn't fit.

    Thanks Maverick, don't you think if the loop was a wider loop of leather you could use it as a page marker or insert a pen while carrying the notebook. These loops won't accommodate a MB149 or M1000 Pelikan. I f

    Yes. I didn't think to ask if they could just make the loop wider. That's something they might be able to accommodate. As for a page marker, I had them add the Moleskine elastic band to mine since I was ordering a customized version anyways.

    While the Rice Purity Test can be an enjoyable activity, it is essential to approach it with a sense of humor and respect for others' experiences. It is not meant to shame or judge anyone but rather to foster open conversations and promote self-awareness. Get more information rice purity test good score
