It is nearly impossible to find a quality spiral notebook designed for a left handed writer as myself. I ran across this website that produces notebooks for left handed writers. The review said " the paper in the notebook is fountain pen friendly. For those that have been gifted to be left handed they have a version for you too.

Interesting. When you open it the spiral is still in the middle. Am I missing something here.

And yes, I am left handed.

From what I gather you're essentially starting at the back of a regular notebook. They just flipped the cover and punched it on the right hand side. I think....

These are my thoughts, as well. It is the way Hebrew books are printed because Hebrew is written and read from right to left, just the opposite of most Western European languages, such as English, French, etc. Therefore, these interesting notebooks are clever in their simplicity but not unknown. Smile

However, these would make great gifts for lefties, even if just for the novelty value.

Exactly my thoughts but probably at double the cost.

I've been doing that for YEARS.... taking a regular notebook that I actually like. I don't like the paper in cheap school "mead" brand notebooks..... But I start at the back of the notebook and work forward. It helps with the issue of the spiral bound side when your a lefty. But that way if notebooks are more expensive made for lefty's you can just buy the normal version and start at the back of the book instead. Works like a dream. If you need to start at the front just use a larger border between the binding and where you start writing to give you that bit of extra space needed.

My second favorite tip for us lefty's who are in our right brain is to use notebooks that have a spiral on the top. That takes out the entire issue of the spiral binding on the left side.
