Love the sturdiness and anonymity of these notebooks. The cover is a strong craft/board material that easily folds back on itself yet sturdy enough to provide writing support for the interior sheets. The cover can be labelled in any form or fasion. The sheets are saddle stitched and light cream colored with faint but still visible lines. The sheets and cover are designed so that the notebook can be reversed either up/down or back/front depending on the writer's needs or desires. Works well with fountain pens.
