The perfect writing surface

Subscribe to our Newsletters

As part of our series Pro Tool, we’re looking for that must-have device in your line of work, be it a pair of scissorscorkscrew, or microphone

The second item in our series? A notebook.

Professional: J. Robert Lennon, writing professor at Cornell University and author of seven novels and two story collections, including most recently “See You in Paradise.”

 

 

 

Pro Tool: A Seven Seas journal, bound by Nanami Paper of Irvine, California.

Why it’s a Pro Tool: “It’s made with this amazing Japanese paper called Tomoe River paper. It’s very thin and glassy. If you like to write with a fountain pen … it’s the perfect surface.”

Cost: $19 and up.

Lennon stamps the front of his notebook with his chop to signify which side is the front.
