In the digital age, the feeling of pressing a good pen to quality paper is a rare treat. Sometimes it's nice to take notes, write a letter, brainstorm, or journal by hand. The important point is good-quality, thick paper that your pen or pencil can smoothly trace over. Japanese notebooks, sketchbooks and looseleaf paper are bright, thick and luxurious to write on. Get yourself a good pen and a good Japanese notebook, turn off your screen, give your eyes a break, and bring back the simple joy of putting pen to paper.
