|A pink one is sent for review. The color reminds me of Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline, a nice and rich magenta. The embossing on the lower right hand corner along with the elastic closure add a degree of finesse to the notebook.|
|A small notch designed for the elastic band. Nice addition to an otherwise simple notebook.|
|Writing sample done on Dialogue Too. Visible feathering on fountain pen ink|

One feature that stands out from Dialogue Too is the notebook has both lined and blank format. At first I am perplexed by the format, but then I realize the benefits of this mixed format. When one uses Dialogue Too as a journal/diary, one can easily use the lined page to compose the entry and use the opposing page for illustration or collaging. Since the notebook comes with elastic closure and not entirely snug, it can accommodate other keepsakes that one put on the blank pages.
