I have a Dingbats notebook. It has dots instead of lines, cream paper that doesn't bleed ink like leuctrum so can use fibre or fountain pens. It is by far the best book i have ever bought - it has a faux leather cover with a stag embossed on it, it has other designsbut beautifully plain and not a life affirming quote in sight, or unicorns.
It opens flat too.

I actually love it!

Oh woah there's a stationery addict corner of mumsnet???!!!

Rhoda all the way. Far nicer paper inside than leuchttern! Beautiful cover. Pocket. Classy. I like the goalbook.

I bought a perfectly penned one recently too, it's very nice. The old ones are 100gsm and the new ones 120gsm so even better (though seems luck of the drawer until amazon get rid of old stock)

Little bleeding too depending on the pen and how heavy handed you are

I've recently bought a Perfectly Penned notebook for work (about £11 on Amazon) and it is BEAUTIFUL. I've got a dotted Leuchtturn for my bujo, which is also pretty good but it does ghost a little.

Highly recommended a trip to Ryman. They have beautiful, affordable A4 hardback notebooks ideal for work. Hope this helped! ⭐

Found the best ever at salts mill art gallery in Bradford. Really a fab day out. Dsis is an ex art teacher and we had a ball! Best place ever!

Or Waitrose - though just noticed you siad for work, so both may be too glitzy.

I've just found this section too! I remember being on the thread asking MNHQ for it - thank you MNHQ!

Paperchase, OP?

I second Rhodia - i use a founrain pen daily and these are great - but also lovely with pencil or fountain pen. I also love Moopad but not sure if they come in a4.

My go-to work pad was the oxford international activebook - it is ring bound but has punched perforated pages and takes all pens beautifully. Only swapped to rhodia for a change (and the oxford ones lasted too long therefore depriving me of notebook purchasing opportunity....)

I just found this stationery thread OMG! WOW!

Rhodia do great hardback notebooks. Their paper is also amazing. Great for use with fountain pens.

I like a nice A4 lined notebook for work. Not in a spiral binder. Not on flimsy paper. Hardback cover. Sainsbury's did a lovely faux leather one which they no longer make. Any ideas. Get through them quickly so not mega spendy please but want something naice to write on
