They say you should not judge a book by its cover.... but if you took one look at these, with their shimmery colors and fine printing, and concluded that the paper inside was equally exquisite, you would be correct. Apica has finally released this cream paper version of their excellent white paper counterparts. They are made in size A5 only (at least for now). Like the rest of the Premium CD line, they have a lay-flat thread binding, which, aside from hand-binding, is the finest, strongest, longest-lasting bookbinding method. The ruled version has lines 7mm apart and a silvery-blue cover; The grid version has a 5mm grid and a gold cover; The blank version is just that, and has a silver cover. Each notebook has 96 sheets (192 pages) and measures 210mm x 148mm, which is a standard A5 size.
