The notepad is just terrific! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I wish it had lines on the back of each sheet as I am using this notepad as stationary, and well, I'm not very good at writing in a straight line. I would like to suggest that David Arms comes out with a stationary set. My 30 yr. old son has decided that real men should still write letters and send them in the mail. He says he is reviving what is almost a 'lost art'. I must admit that receiving letters from him is a thrill to this mamma's heart! And I so love David Arm's art and his artist shop in Franklin that I ordered this notebook as my 'stationary in returning letters to my very special son.
