superb CIAK notebook. Red leather with acid free archival quality cream
squared paper. 12x17cm. Patented horizontal elastic band secures any pen tightly
against your notebook. CIAK journals and notebooks are made in Italy.
Bound with smooth soft Italian bonded leather, the CIAK's cover is firm yet
flexible, which makes it an excellent alternative to a hardback cover. The use
of bonded leather also makes CIAK notebooks very durable - ideal for everyday
Archival Quality, Acid Free Paper
There are 240 pages (120 leafs) of college ruled cream paper, perfect for
fountain pen ink as well as ballpoints. The paper is archival quality and acid
free. Takes fountain pen ink on both sides without showthrough.
A Unique Leather Notebook
But that's where the conventional notebook ends.
Handmade in Florence, Italy, the CIAK notebook is a leather journal with a
difference. CIAK features a patent protected horizontal elastic band, one major
advantage of which is that a pen can be securely fastened to the notebook
without fear of loss or damage. We've tried this with a variety of pens of
different sizes ranging from a Pilot G2 to a Mont Blanc and the CIAK secured
each one perfectly.
This is something that is simply impossible with any other notebook, due to
their conventional vertical elastic bands. A quick look at the various Moleskine
hacks on the Internet demonstrates the usefulness and value of having a pen
attached to the notebook in this way.

Writing helps you...
organise your thoughts
relive your experiences
better understand yourself and your emotions
keep your mind sharp as you mature
Writing has emotional, mental and physical benefits. As well as helping us understand our complex, often inarticulate emotions and psyche a little better, research carried out at UCLA indicates that there may be a connection between a lack of 'mental exercise' and Alzheimer's disease. A lack of 'mental exercise' in youth seems to manifest itself in the formation of plaque on the brain in early adulthood, which has been linked to Alzheimer's in later life. The principle is that if underused, the brain atrophies and decay, however slowly, will inevitably begin.
Besides the physical benefits, writing helps us to better understand the workings of our own psyche. How many great pieces have started with no particular objective, yet emerged as a highly focused piece? The subconscious mind has a way of instilling a sense of unity into our writing, even when we write apparently random paragraphs that have no perceivable way of connecting with a greater thematic element.

Description of CIAK journals
CIAK is made from the highest quality soft Italian bonded leather. The paper is 100% acid-free and is also of the highest quality, minimising show through when 'wet ink' pens are used, such as fountain pens and ink rollers.
The horizontal elastic enclosure is patented and CIAK is the only notebook in the world to have this feature. It is a refinement that is typical of Italian design; a subtle change that makes all the difference and yet is aesthetically pleasing. Use it to hold your pen with your journal, or
secure loose sheets.
